Minus Damian Lillard (out due to a minor ankle injury), the Portland Trail Blazers looked more relaxed in their second game against the Utah Jazz. In fact, LaMarcus Aldridge seemed ready for the regular season, scoring 22 with 6 rebounds. The Blazers' bench played extended minutes again, and held their own against the Jazz starters down the stretch. Nonetheless, the Jazz hit the big shots late to steal a preseason victory.
Stay tuned, Ryan A. Chase is on site at the Moda Center, and will have more later tonight. In the meantime, hang out and discuss tonight's events. -- Tim
