FIVE GOLDEN ING-LES! Favors at the four, Ricky for three, two Spida Dunks, and Gobert protecting the paint.

NBA: Utah Jazz at Portland Trail Blazers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

Christmas party like it’s 1997. The Utah Jazz will play their first Christmas Day game in 21 years when they face the Portland Trail Blazers on December 25, 2018. According to Chris Haynes of ESPN—who somehow has all the scoops when it comes to the Utah Jazz—the Utah Jazz will actually have a home game on Christmas. GLAD TIDINGS OF GREAT JOY.

The last time the Utah Jazz played on Christmas they faced the Houston Rockets. They won that game 107-103. The Utah Jazz are 4-2 in their franchise history on the holiday. The Utah Jazz must be wanting to have a little revenge for the last game of the regular season last year when the Trail Blazers finished off Utah to put the 3rd seed and home court out of reach. The Portland Trail Blazers and the Utah Jazz split the season series last year 2-2.

What can be better than spending Christmas with your family and Donovan Mitchell? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
