(27-28) Utah Jazz vs. Portland Trail Blazers (31-25)
Utah won its eighth game in a row on Friday night, beating the Hornets by eight at home.
The win came without Jae Crowder, who the Jazz acquired from Cleveland, sending away Rodney Hood. That deal is going to have a positive effect on both teams. Crowder is going to play free and help Utah’s defense.
Hood may not be the greatest fit in Cleveland but it rids the Cavs of Crowder, who just wasn’t a good fit and gives them some potential scoring in Hood. Of all the players Cleveland acquired, Hood is the biggest x-factor because of his potential.
The Jazz are two games out in the Western Conference for the eight seed. Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and Joe Ingles all had 20+ on Friday and that trio looks like it could carry it to the playoffs based on the last two weeks.
Utah has two home games after this tough roadie before the All-Star Break. It hosts San Antonio and Phoenix before the week off. Two out of the next three would certainly do.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland blew the Kings out on Friday night. Damian Lillard scored 50 points in 29 minutes of floor time, just as his backcourt mate CJ McCollum did about a week ago.
McCollum only had 11 on Friday night, deferring to the hot hand. Much of Lillard’s damage came in isolation, though. He actually led the team with six assists.
Portland is all the way up to the five-seed in the West, ahead of Oklahoma City and just one game behind Minnesota in the loss column for both the four-seed and the Northwest Division lead.
The Blazers only have two games left before the All-Star Break, this one at then a home game against the Warriors. They’ll start the post break schedule on the road before a four-game home stand that includes games with Minnesota and Oklahoma City.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction: the Jazz won’t make it easy, but Portland stays hot on its home floor.
Two hot teams and two teams that play tremendously well at home. I’ll take Portland because Utah can still go through dry spells offensively. That can’t happen at Moda.
