The Utah Jazz (19-34) take on the Portland Trail Blazers (36-17) tonight at EnergySolutions Arena at 7:00 PM as both teams are returning from their All-Star breaks.
The Jazz wrapped up the first half of the season winners of 2 of 3 games. The Jazz lost to the Blazers 103-102 the last time out. They will need to play well defensively tonight if they want to slow down Portland. They are now without Steve Novak and Enes Kanter after they were traded on Thursday. The Jazz will welcome back rookies Joe Ingles and Rodney Hood tonight after they have been both out with injuries.
