|Not only can Utah match Portland’s offensive output, but they own one of the stoutest defences in the NBA. But as Utah is without their key backcourt, expect Lillard and McCollum to run wild toward victory.|

The Portland Trail Blazers are on an encouraging four game winning streak. While the quality of their opponents has been average at-best, they need to carry over their offensive form against the Jazz.
Over their last four games, the Trail Blazers are averaging 127.8 points on 49.3% shooting from the field and 40.3% shooting from three. A large key to their success has been their ability to win the rebounding battle 52.0 to 43.8.
Portland must compete with the Jazz on the boards to stay relevant in this game. While they’ll be up against a tough perimeter defence, it is their competition on the glass that can change the game.

The Trail Blazers made a move with Championship aspirations when they acquired Norman Powell on trade deadline day. A proven scorer and defender, Powell has added a new wrinkle to the Trail Blazers’ gameplan.
In his last three games, Powell has averaged 21.7 points and 4.7 rebounds on 43.8% shooting from the field and 38.1% shooting from three.
The Jazz will surely key in on McCollum and Lillard, which lends itself to Powell’s scoring efficiency. For Portland to win, they need Powell to take advantage of his opportunities.
The Utah Jazz are coming off of a loss to the Golden State Warriors. While certain players starred, they were unable to find meaningful production as a unit.
Jordan Clarkson and Bojan Bogdanovic combined for 68 of the Jazz’s 116 points on the evening. It was one-way traffic though, as Utah had just 14 assists on 41 field goals – about nine off their season average.
The Blazers have a high-octane offence, ready to challenge the Jazz on every possession. If the Jazz can’t convert on opportunities, or keep playing hero-ball, they won’t come out with a victory.

Philippines international guard Jordan Clarkson did his absolute best to keep the Utah Jazz in their last game. But despite his massive effort, the Jazz fell short.
Clarkson is coming off of a 41 point, seven rebound night in 35 minutes of play. While his scoring contribution was massive, so was his volume, going 16 of 33 on the night and five of 16 from three.
With Mitchell and Conley out, Clarkson is a de facto playmaker when he is on the floor. Collecting zero assists in their recent losing effort, Clarkson must find a way to get his teammates involved to beat Portland.
