Utah has been one of the most solid teams in the NBA despite their 2 game losing streak after the league’s All-Star break. In fact, the Jazz have won 8 of their last 10 games while also holding opponents to one of the lowest total pts in the league. The only real issues they have to fix before playoffs are their offense and road issues. They’re currently 9-17 away from the Vivint Smart Home Arena and rank in the bottom 5 in terms of pts scored and assists. Their obvious strength lies in their defense, allowing just 96 pts per game and ranked 2nd in the league in pts allowed.
The Trail Blazers are also one of the hottest teams in the league right now, not only because they’ve won 9 of their last 10 games but have been beating top competition lately. That culminated on Friday when the defending champion, Golden State Warriors lost by 32 points against them. Damian Lillard dropped a career high 51 pts and it helped them take the 8th seed right in front of the Jazz. This game is extremely important for both teams, as the winner will be sitting in the 8th seed and will have the upper hand in terms of tiebreaker situation.
