The Utah Jazz will get a chance for another win tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers tonight. After a tough road back-to-back, the Utah Jazz are back at home and have an opportunity to get a win they desperately need if they want to stay in contention for the play-in tournament.

There’s some intrigue in this one for Jazz fans in terms of their young draft picks that have been playing for the Salt Lake City Stars. Taylor Hendricks and Brice Sensabaugh have been playing well for the Stars and it looks like they’ll be available for this one.

With so many players out, this may be the premiere of Taylor Hendricks, something Jazz fans have been looking forward to all season. Will he get the minutes tonight against a sub-par Portland team? Seems very possible.
