Portland
Utah

[UTAH] — The Utah Jazz played host to the Portland Trail Blazers last night and the homeside took care of business. A 106-87 win has the Jazz and their fans feeling good about themselves heading forward. The win bumps Utah's record up to 48-30 on the season, while the loss drags Portland's down to 38-40. Though a win's a win and Jazz fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

On this night it was Rudy Gobert leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 20 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 blocks and 1 steals in 35 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Gobert included - and the most important part is that the Jazz walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Gordon Hayward did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Trail Blazers. Hayward's 30 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Utah's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Trail Blazers, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Jazz will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Jazz will be a date with the Minnesota Timberwolves while the visiting Trail Blazers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
