Tonight, the Portland Trail Blazers visit the Utah Jazz in a battle of hot-starting teams that have cooled somewhat as the season wears on. The Blazers will still be missing NBA All-Star Damian Lillard, but that’s rumored to be corrected tomorrow against the Indiana Pacers. Before then, the 11-11 Blazers will be tasked with disposing of the 14-11 Jazz on the road.
