Trail Blazers @ Jazz Game Thread


The Trail Blazers enter the last week of 2010 with a brutal three-game stretch staring them directly in the eye. Up first, the pesky Utah Jazz, who, for whatever reason, have Portland's number. From 07-09, the Trail Blazers tied the Jazz twice and won the season series 3-1 once. But ever since the 09 season, Utah has reeled off 5 straight, even defeating Portland twice in the preseason.

All-Time, the Blazers are 15-61 against the Jazz away from the Rose City and have lost 11 of their last 12 tries in Utah.

The Trail Blazers need to establish LA inside tonight against the smaller Millsap. Like Golden State, the biggest key is to keep LA out of foul trouble. He picked up two early fouls on Christmas and it took him completely out of his rhythm. continue
