NSS Jazz @ Blazers – 1st of a 4 game series!! Mitchell vs Lillard
The Jazz made some moves to their roster and took a tough loss vs the Miami Heat. The Blazers shouldn’t have loss to the Pelicans. Both of this team, at the moment, make up the 6th and 8th spot in the West. Yes, we should be talking about playoff seeding because the goals are is the playoffs. The Jazz seem to realize that their summer moves are not working out so they making changes hoping to get better. The Blazers are trying to redefine themselves to make something out of the season.
This is the 1st of a 4-game series and both of this team have a long way to go to start thinking further than the 1st round. The Jazz at 18-12 should consider themselves lucky that some of their recent performances only count as 1 loss. Whatever plan the Jazz had at the beginning of the season has gone out the window and they have officially started switching gears towards a new plan, that may not be fully known just yet.
And the best example is the trade for Jordan Clarkson to make the attempt to help out the Jazz’s bench. In theory, if Clarkson plays, he should lead the bench mob, but the bigger Jazz concern may be Where is Conley and when is he coming back? And when he comes back, if he ever going to recover from his strugglers?

The Blazers losing to the Pelicans makes me think that they are allergic to getting to 500 and I mean that. It seems like every time they get to a couple games to even out the record, they just blow it themselves. Lillard missed 10 3s, McCollum when 2-10 from 3 leaving it up to Carmelo Anthony to carry the scoring, he had 23 pts, 9-17 fg, 1-4 from 3. The Blazers shot themselves out of this game, they should take note from the Jazz and start making moves. And when I say start making moves, I am looking at Kent Bazemore.
This wont be an easy game for either team and also it may not be a pretty game for either. The Blazers are at home, with their improve record of 8-7, while the Jazz away record is 7-9. The big matchup is the Mitchell vs Lillard preview due to that either one could go off for 30 points on a given night. If you ask me the Blazers have the scoring advantage of CJ McCollum, but the Jazz are balanced and have more options.
I can make a pick for this game, being that this are 2 of my favorite teams in the NBA to watch. The Jazz are the team that I go see the most. While the Blazers haver Carmelo Anthony who has been my favorite player growing up. Lets just say that I’ll be watching and pretty happy even if the game ended in a tie.
Lastly, welcome to the Jazz Jordan Clarkson, it seems like most of the Jazz fans go some mix feelings about you, but I hope you do great.
