So if you want to stop the Utah Jazz let them get up by 24 points and then mount a furious comeback by playing a switch everything defense and have a big guard Deron Williams. I sent a text to Scottie with 6 minutes left in the third that read "Dejavu" as a joke not knowing that we would pull a Phoenix.

I'm not going to officially welcome Carlos Boozer back but he did look spectacular last night.
Here's the stat line 41:37, 8-13 61%, 5-7, 4/7 total of 11 rebounds, 2 assists, 4 steals and 21 points.

Deron went cold in the fourth but hit some big shots late.


The Bench dropped 34 and Brewer had a solid 17.

Brendan had a party foul dropped all over his jacket, full glass of the Coors Light.

UTAH JAZZ @ PORTLAND TRAILBLAZERS Preview

Thinking about the Utah Jazz on the road freaks me out and gives me even more ulcers than I already have. We are 1-14 on the road against the playoff teams. So the questions needs to be asked can the Utah Jazz win on the road. To be completely honest I don't think so especially on a back to back.

Portland matches up very well with the Utah Jazz at every position and they have the ability to cause problems. I don't think we win this game, but here are 5 things that have to happen for us to win.

Roy can't have more than 23 points.

Korver has to score at least 13

Deron needs to have 12 assists.

As a team we have to at least 6 blocks.

My prediction Trailblazers 98 Jazz 91.
