Portland Trail Blazers
Portland is sitting right in the middle of the mess that is positions 3-10 in the Western Conference right now. The Blazers are seventh, one of five teams with 26 losses at this particular moment.
Portland played Utah at home just a few days before the all-star break and failed to snap its winning streak. Instead, the Jazz stormed into the Moda Center and just kept winning.
The Blazers did have one more game before the break and they played one of their finest games of the season in a six-point win over the Warriors.
Damian Lillard scored 44 to help his guys outlast Kevin Durant’s 50.
CJ McCollum’s 29 were the by-far third-highest total in the game, though.
Utah is playing better at this point but Portland has the best player on the floor, as it often does. It puts a lot of pressure on Lillard but its welcomed pressure for a man who believes he’s as good as any point guard in the game.
The trade deadline didn’t slow down the Utah Jazz and now we’ll see if the all-star break will stop the runaway train that is the Jazz.
Utah has won 11 in a row and, miraculously, hasn’t moved up or down in the standings. The Jazz is still tenth, two losses behind the Clippers and the other four teams with 26 losses.
Donovan Mitchell starred in the Rising Stars game and then went out the very next night and won the Dunk Contest. The NBA world seems, more so now than ever before, sure that Mitchell is a future star.
It’ll be interesting to see if he knocks Ben Simmons from the top of the Rookie of the Year race. Simmons has been consistent all season and is on a team that will make the playoffs out East.
But if Mitchell does what he’s been doing for the last 24 games and the Jazz makes the playoffs, it’s going to be a lot closer than anyone could have imagined in November.

There’ll be speculation that the win streak could cool down with the time off and that is a legitimate concern. It might also give us a decent number with Utah on Friday night.
