Utah Jazz owner Larry Miller told the Salt Lake Tribune Wednesday that he won’t attend Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals on Sunday due to religious reasons.
The Jazz haven’t played a home playoff game on a Sunday since 2000, or even a home game on Sunday since 2001.
Miller is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which admonishes its members to avoid non-religious activities on Sundays if at all possible. He told the Tribune:
“About 15 years ago, I decided [going to Sunday games] just didn’t fit with what I wanted to be. It’s just a personal thing.”
