Game 63: Utah Jazz (32-30, Road: 10-22) @ Portland Trail Blazers (28-34, Home: 20-12)

Five game win streak continues tonight!

The Jazz have to keep rolling, and play their last regular season road game tonight. Portland is usually a tough place to play; but since they scuttled a lot of their team, and have placed some members on the injury reserve for dubious reasons, they appear to be less dangerous right now. The Jazz are also still missing a ton of people. The Blazers are down, but we can't count this as a win yet (lessons learned from New Orleans). There appears to be less overt danger, but danger still exists.

We're not talented enough, well coached enough, or good enough to over look teams. Especially not division rivals who can hit the long bomb.
