UPDATE: The Blazers held off the Jazz in a close game, 88-81. The Blazers were led by Meyers Leonard's 19 points and 8 rebounds. Al-Farouq Aminu added 15 points and 4 rebounds, and the returning Moe Harkless scored 11.
Damian Lillard missed the game while resting his ankle. And CJ McCollum played, but was ejected with a Flagrant 2 Foul in the final minutes of the fourth. He made a non-basketball play on Gordon Hayward on the break. We'll probably hear about any further action tomorrow.
