Two teams fighting for bottom seeds in the Western Conference get set for battle on Sunday as the Utah Jazz and Portland Trail Blazers go at it.
Currently, the Trail Blazers find themselves in a playoff position as they sit in 7th just 0.5 game up on 9th place Utah. The bottom of the West is completely crammed with the 5-8 seeds completely up for grabs.
The Jazz got back into the win column after dropping their opener in the 2nd half with a win over Boston on Friday night.
Utah has gone 6-2 in the month of February as they continue to push toward the 8 seed. The Jazz had rattled off 7 straight wins, before losing to the Pelicans prior to the break.
They then opened the 2nd half with a make up game against Washington and laid an egg in a 14 point loss.
They then followed it up with an 18 point home win in a game where they were favorite by just 1 point.
Derrick Favors has been the difference maker for this team since returning from injury. Favors put in 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to secure a double-double.
The road hasn’t been a kind place to the Jazz though this season. Utah has gone just 9-17 SU at home and have gone just 12-14 ATS in that span.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland, like Utah, has had a good month of February to get themselves into the playoff race. Portland has gone 5-1 this month and comes in off their most impressive win of the season.
Portland put up 137 points against the Golden State Warriors and handed them their 5th loss of the season. The offense has been clicking, with production from everyone, as they’ve put up 112, 116, and 137 point performances.
It was Damien Lillard and CJ McCollum, once again, who led the way for Portland in their 137 point tear.
Lillard finished with 51 points and 7 assists while McCollum added 21, 7, and 4. The key to success for Portland has been the play of their bench. Henderson, Harkles, Crabbe, Roberts, and Davis all had contributions in the win.
Back on 1/13, Portland took down Utah at home 99-85.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
There is 2 keys here.
1.The Portland bench- The Trail Blazers success has come from the bench taking the pressure off Lillard and McCollum. For a majority of the season, the team relied all on them. Now, the bench is not just producing, but making more open shots for the duo.
