Tonight the Utah Jazz tip-off against the Portland Trail Blazers. Finally! A game! Not that the game matters. It's the first preseason game, which means star players will barely play, and most everyone is going to try to figure out how to run the plays at 3/4 speed without getting injured.

Game Preview | Five Things to Watch | Portland Guards have set Utah on fire


  • PG: George Hill @ Damian Lillard
  • SG: Rodney Hood @ C.J. McCollum {Marquee Match-Up}
  • SF: Gordon Hayward @ Maurice Harkless
  • PF: Derrick Favors @ Al-Farouq Aminu
  • C: Rudy Gobert @ Mason Plumlee

Key Bench:

  • Dante Exum vs. Shabazz Napier
  • Joe Johnson vs. Evan Turner
  • Boris Diaw vs. Ed Davis
  • Jeff Withey vs. Festus Ezeli


Portland lists TBD, Utah lists no one. But isn't Alec Burks injured? I guess we'll see. Quincy Ford is good to go, per Jody Genessy.



Who is going to win tonight?
