Portland Trail Blazers. Utah Jazz. Gotta win this one, ladies and gentlemen.

Team Breakdown:

Utah's going to be without three starters. Portland is going to be without three centers. This is a crazy handicap match. Portland is on the second night of a back to back, and playing their third game in four nights. Vegas has the Jazz winning this one. But it's not going to be easy.
