Utah Jazz                                              

The Utah Jazz will welcome the Portland Trail Blazers to Vivint Arena for an NBA game on Wednesday. The Utah Jazz won 128-120 in their last game over the Kings. Ochai Agbaji scored a career-high 27 points, including six 3-pointers, to lead the Utah Jazz to a 128-120 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Monday night. Kelly Olynyk had 19 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists for the Jazz. 

Kris Dunn added 18 points and a season-high 10 assists. Udoka Azubuike chipped in with a career-high 13 points and a season-best eight rebounds. Eight players scored in double figures for the Jazz, who shot 52% from the field. Agbaji’s offensive outburst underscored the progress he’s made from earlier in his rookie season when he had stints in the G League.

 “I kind of saw that as my own race, starting there,” Agbaji said. “My expectations were a little bit different coming in, but starting there, I had to be fine with it, had to go with it, had to give it my all and have a positive attitude while I was doing it.”

Portland Trail Blazers

The Portland Trail Blazers on the other hand lost 102-117 against the Clippers in their last game. Jusuf Nurkic finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds for the Blazers, who were in 13th in the West, well outside of playoff contention. Damian Lillard had 21 points and nine assists. Portland never led in the game but pulled within 103-97 on Nurkic’s layup in the fourth quarter. 

Leonard’s jumper and George’s 3-pointer pushed the Clippers’ lead back to 108-97 and many Portland fans started heading for the exits “We’ve still got to get better,” Leonard said. “There’s a lot of things — a lot of mistakes that we’re making at times. So we’ve got to clean that up a little bit and see if we can just keep making leaps.” 

The Clippers led by as many as 15 points in the first half but the Blazers closed the gap to 44-42 on Drew Eubanks’ basket before Trendon Watford tied it with a layup. Portland was not able to pull in front and the Clippers led 59-55 at the break.
