In a game from NBA, we will see Portland Trail Blazers at Utah Jazz.
The Portland Trail Blazers had an up and down season so far. They won 6 of their last 9 games and are now looking for another victory to improve to 20-14. They are averaging 111.1 points per game on 45.8% shooting and allowing 110.5 on 46% shooting. Damian Lillard is the leading scorer with 26.9 points per game and 5.8 assists while CJ McCollum has 21.2 points and 3.8 rebounds per game on his resume. The team, however, has lost 6 of their last 7 games on the road.
The Utah Jazz, on the other side, are looking for consistency at the moment after winning 5 of their last 10 games. They are averaging 106.9 points per game on 46.1% shooting while allowing 105.9 points on 46.4% shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 20.2 points and 3.4 assists while Rudy Gobert is averaging 14.6 points and 12.3 rebounds. The Jazz have also won 4 of their last 5 home games.
The Trail Blazers are an absolute mess on the road this year and they lost by 9 points to Memphis and by 7 to Houston in recent weeks. Portland and Utah met in Portland a few days ago and the Trail Blazers were dismantled by 30 points. I believe that Utah will get the job done at home.
