The Portland Trail Blazers will take on the Utah Jazz at the Moda Center in a battle to see which near-.500 team has the inside edge on making the playoffs, or at least play-in, during the 2022-23 seeding season. Damian Lillard has been playing phenomenally for the Blazers, but Lauri Markkanen has been out of this world for the Jazz. Something’s got to give. Let’s hope the Trail Blazers are not in a charitable mood!
