Portland vs Utah Jazz
One of better games on this final day of NBA regular season. Of course it's not the tension like in Minnesota vs Denver game cause unlike there, here both will compete in post season. But, the game is important for the final spots.
Currently Utah is third best on the west, Portland is No.4. Both are with same record, 48-33. IMO such standings (Utah 3rd, Portland 4th) will remain also after tonight's game, meaning Utah will win.
I respect a lot team of Trail Blazers, IMO they haven't been so good since Aldridge era but at this point I give slight advantage to Utah Jazz.
Firstly, Portland is in series of losses, the host lost last four straight while Utah is coming to this final day of the regular season with six straight victories. Also, when Rudy Gobert is healthy, many rates Utah as one of few best in the NBA.
Also it should be noted that Utah only with victory would secure home court advantage in the first playoff round while if I am not wrong Portland is already safe for home court advantage in Round 1.
