Jazz Big Men Help Hold Off Blazers
(KUTV) The Jazz beat the Portland Trailblazers 86-77 Friday night in Utah. For the second straight game the Jazz big men scored at will with Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap and Derrick Favors combining to score 49 of the Jazz 86 points.
At the other end the Blazers All-Star, LaMarcus Aldridge, struggled making just 6 of his 17 shots and the Blazer bench shot a pitiful 22% from the floor. Portland scored in the teens in every quarter except the third.
The Blazers will try to redeem themselves Saturday night in Portland as the same two teams meet again. Watch the highlights on Talkin Sports and follow the game on Twitter with @daviddjjames and @AdamMikulich.
