The Utah Jazz will host the Boston Celtics tonight. The Celtics are playing their third game in four nights, and are on their third game of a four game West road trip. They lost to the Sacramento Kings, and beat the Portland Trail Blazers. The Kings loss was their first loss that broke up their 7 game win-streak. The Celtics are playing very well right now. The Jazz? The Jazz have been up and down, but mostly up of late. The team had been blowing teams out on their three game road trip, but lost in overtime to the Dallas Mavericks. Perhaps that Mavs loss will keep this team humble and focused? We'll see.

Tonight is a "Blue Out" game, so wear blue.
