It started off okay... then got interesting late... but it was still not a pretty outing tonight in Salt Lake City. And what is with the Jazz fans?? They are kinda fickle aren't they?
Brandon Roy tied a career-high with 33 points...and for the first time in his brief career... has back-to-back game of 30+ points.
Still, the remaining players up and down Portland's roster didn't match the energy put forth by Utah. The Jazz did nothing but pressure the Blazers all night...winning the hustle points.. and posting their 2nd win over Portland this season.
Here's the good news...the Blazers don't visit Utah again this season. And what's even better is that Portland will be home for the holidays. Between now and January 12th... they'll play all but two of their games inside the Rose Garden. That's 10 of their next 12 on their home floor where loads of success can be had.
