Wednesday, April 11 finds the Utah Jazz arriving at the Moda Center to face their host the Portland Trail Blazers. Utah played the night prior and will finish the season on a back to back set. The first game featured Utah playing the Golden State Warriors.
Portland last played Monday in Denver in a match they lost to the Nuggets.
Last season, the teams split their series and the Jazz are up two games to one this season. The Jazz hold the all-time record having bested the Blazers in 100 of their 184 matches.
Depending on what occurs Tuesday in Golden State the Jazz could be entering this match with the opportunity to steal the third seed right out from under the Blazers.
As with many teams who are in the west, each has certain matchups they prefer including specific paths they want to make the deepest possible playoff run. And, as crazy as it may seem to want to face the Warriors (assuming the Jazz could win the first round series) they may in fact want that matchup.
A win Tuesday by the Jazz would move them ahead of Portland regardless of this match since Utah hold a 2-1 series lead and also have a better conference record.
Depending on the outcome of this game and what other lower seeds do will play a factor with only the Thunder holding the tiebreaker over the Jazz.
Raul Neto (wrist) although the wrist is fractured he is aiming to return for postseason play. Thabo Sefolosha (knee) is out for the season.
Portland Trail Blazers
It seems like eons ago the Blazers etched their playoff ticket and seemingly the third seed. Cut to four straight losses and the Blazers could be in the uncomfortable position of losing five straight heading into the postseason.
At this point, anything less than a win over the Jazz would mean other teams will determine the Blazers placement. A loss to the Jazz would mean a wins by the Pelicans, Spurs and Thunder could result in a 4-way tie. Tiebreaker scenarios offer copious variables which are best viewed via chart on nba.com.
Ed Davis (ankle) missed four/five games but returned/ is expected to return for this match. Maurice Harkless (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery and is expected back in the first round of postseason play.
