Trail Blazers @ Jazz – NBA Game Preview

Portland clinched a spot in the NBA 2010-11 playoffs, albeit backdoor, for the third straight season on April 5, in a loss to the Golden State Warriors.

The Trail Blazers are tied with the New Orleans Hornets for the sixth and seventh playoff seeds. Both teams trying to keep the eighth place Grizzlies at bay as Memphis is just a game back.

Since the departure of legendary head coach Jerry Sloan, Utah has gone 6-18 under interim coach Tyrone Corbin. If they were even 12 -12 over that stretch, the Jazz would be in the thick of the playoff hunt.
