Compare those staring lineups. Should the Jazz really be that much better than the Blazers?
No they shouldn't. This game will be an excruciating watch. Wide open uncontested 3s all night long. Damian hasn't had a real impact on games for awhile now. Not sure why. He deserves a better coach.
Blatantly obvious the best way to win is to stop playing negative defenders.
The Blazers (30-20) are now 1-7 against the five teams above them in the Western Conference, and the average score in those games is 120-107. Amid the wreckage are losses by 32 to the Suns, by 23 and 17 to the Clippers and by 20 to the Jazz. The only win against the top teams was a 115-107 victory at the Lakers in the season’s third game.
Blow out incoming
The Jazz are about to do to us what we just did to the Thunder.
everybody predicting doom in SLC could be right. I will say after 50 years of watching the NBA, situations like what Portland will be facing against Utah often result in surprises. I think the Blazers will probably lose too, but I'm giving them more of a chance than many apparently are.
Issuing? Is that a typo?
Suns are most likely winning that game IMO. Why would the Jazz play hard and chance two losses? They play a tough game tonight and come out tired against the Blazers?
Not saying they will but resting and going for the winnable game against a divisional rival seems like a possibility.
I would not be surprised to see them come out and see how things are going but if they get down they pull the plug early.
Who really cares if a game is on ESPN? I just wish the Blazers did more of this kind of thing. Play the schedule. Don't let the schedule play you.
Oh no... we are playing th number 1 team in the west. Need a poll on how many 3’s the Jazz can make.
The talent is similar. The fit of the Jazz players is far superior.
Love the jazz went to overtime and the blazers will still get smacked on a back to back for utah lol
Call me a homer, but I'll take the Blazers +48
Sad part blazers will be on a 2 day rest and still lose by 40 on a back to back for utah who went to overtime
I guess it's always easier for some to be pessimistic. I suppose that way they are never disappointed.
I seems like the pessimistic ones still manage to be the most disappointed as well.
I think we get this one - if Nurk plays, I feel real good about it.
If Nurkic plays or when he does play he needs to be coming off the bench with limited minutes.
I know it's not cool quoting yourself but hey I got a little of what I was asking for... so maybe we've got a better shot at this one.
