Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
The Blazers are 10-6 with Damian Lillard having missed five games and left two early because of calf injuries. They are 7-2 when he starts and finishes a game. – 2:01 AM
Chris Herring @Herring_NBA
I was on vacation this summer, and ran into some U of Utah fans. When I told them I went to Michigan, they then asked me, with a straight face, if Utah was a realistic candidate to join the Big Ten if it expands beyond USC and UCLA. – 1:56 AM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
The Utah and Oregon staffs just rode down in the same elevator.
Tough look. – 1:55 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Friday night: Malik Beasley comes off bench to outscore Suns bench 27-21
Saturday night: Beasley comes off bench to outscore Trail Blazers bench 29-26
Monday night: Utah Jazz at LA Clippers – 1:55 AM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
NEW: Utah had plenty of chances to get over the hump and couldn’t cash in on any of them in a 20-17 loss at Oregon.
The quick words, a lot more coming as roads to Vegas are just about closed: sltrib.com/sports/utah-ut…1:54 AM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Damian Lillard missed four games following his first calf injury. He is hopeful that he won’t miss as many games this time around but does anticipate missing some time.
“The only thing I know is that it wasn’t as bad as the first one.” – Damian Lillard. pic.twitter.com/BTMj8SzgQz1:45 AM

Utah defense has been heroic in the second half. Cam and the offense with one more chance – 1:44 AM

Sean Highkin @highkin
Damian Lillard on frustrating homestand: “I’m not concerned. I think this is part of it. We’ve had game-winners, we’ve won tough games, we’ve won road games, we’ve had a good start. We’re 10-6 with a tough schedule. We’ve played some good teams.” – 1:40 AM
Jordan Clarkson @JordanClarksons
team wins!!!! lets keep the vibe going!!! 🖤🏴‍☠🏴‍☠🏴‍☠1:40 AM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
A Blazers fan was escorted out of the arena tonight. The fan, according to those who heard the exchanges, was directing racist comments toward Jordan Clarkson and then also flipped the players off for a long while. Sexton pointed the fan out to team security. – 1:34 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
A Trail Blazers fan was ejected from the game tonight after reportedly directing racist comments and obscene gestures at Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson. Jazz guard Collin Sexton pointed out the fan to team security, and the fan was removed. Clarkson declined to comment on the record. – 1:34 AM

Lauri Markkanen had his fifth 20-point, 10-rebound game of the season, he had just four in the previous three seasons combined.

Simone Fontecchio made his presence felt in Portland for the Utah Jazz.
He counted 3 points, 1-5 FG, 1 assist and 1 steal in 12 minutes on the floor.
Here’s his great defensive effort and the steal. #TakeNote pic.twitter.com/arPcB9O2mI1:24 AM

Sean Highkin @highkin
Damian Lillard says this calf injury isn’t as bad as the first one. Seemed to think he’ll miss a couple games on the road trip but doesn’t expect it to be an extended thing. Had an MRI tonight but no results yet. – 1:23 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
JC, on Conley’s injury: It’s definitely scary. Talking to him, I hope it’s not that serious. He seemed in good spirits. But he’s been the leader of our team. – 1:20 AM
David Locke @DLocke09
Hat tip to both @Eric Walden and @Sarah Todd who are both on the road and getting direct comments from Mike Conley. This is why travelling reporters is a necessity for reporting. Hat tip to @sltrib and @Deseret1:19 AM

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Conley on the knee injury: “Early signs seemed like they were checking out. I was going through that process while laying on the floor, I was testing it myself…Kind of want to get the MRI to double check and we’ll know more shortly in the next day or so.” – 1:14 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Mike Conley said his injury was noncontact. As he tried to fight over a screen, his leg locked up and he went down. He did a mental check on the court: I know it’s not that or that. Initial on-court ligament tests were good; awaiting imaging. He was walking with a severe limp. – 1:13 AM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Mike Conley had an MRI, waiting on the results of that, but he said that early on it looks like it’s better than it seemed when he first went down – 1:09 AM

Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi
No. 10 Utah 17, No. 12 Oregon 17 in the fourth quarter.
If you’re USC, you’re pulling for Utah. That one road loss by one point looks better against a Top 10 team and you have the chance to avenge that one loss in the Pac-12 Championship Game. – 1:06 AM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Fours up at Autzen, and a massive play coming out of the stoppage with the scored tied at 17.
Oregon has fourth-and-5 at the Utah 42.
Terrific open-field tackle on third down by R.J. Hubert. – 1:06 AM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Will Hardy said Mike Conley has gone through an MRI and the Jazz are awaiting the results. He said Conley is in great spirits and walking around
“Very hopeful” said Hardy – 12:51 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Hardy, on Clarkson’s 4Q: Jordan wanted the ball, he’s made a lot of good decisions for us late in games. … Portland was switching, and we felt like if we gave him proper spacing, he’d have room to attack. Didn’t settle for jump shots. – 12:45 AM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz

The Clippers get win #10
LA beats Spurs 119-97. Largest win of season. Of course it does not come without drama: Paul George did not play in second half due to right knee soreness.
Norman Powell scores game-high and season-high 26 points.
LA ends homestand Monday vs Jazz. – 12:43 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Hardy on Conley: Awaiting the results on more imaging, but he’s walking around, smiling, very hopeful. – 12:43 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Hardy: Talen particularly stepped up. His defense was very good on Lillard. Set the tone, ran the team well. – 12:42 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Will Hardy: This game was very representative of our team this year. Couldn’t make a shot early. … Blazers made their run late, and we responded. We had a lot of big plays made by a lot of people. – 12:42 AM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Utah’s defense has largely done its job since the opening drive.
The offense need to help out at some point tonight. – 12:41 AM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Tough road trip coming up. Milwaukee, Cleveland, Brooklyn and New York. They’re 10-6 now, could easily come home at .500 especially if Dame misses time. – 12:38 AM

Josh Hart almost led the Trail Blazers to the comeback win after Dame left w/ injury. Offensive rebounds, steals, smart passing, coast-to-coasts were all witnessed. He was a machine, but Jordan Clarkson was huge in the clutch.
Utah/Portland are fun & legit. Get on board already! – 12:34 AM

The Jazz defeat the Blazers 118-113 to win this second night of a back to back. Monster fourth quarter from Jordan Clarkson. Monster night from Malik Beasley. Mike Conley’s health a real concern. The Jazz move to 12-6 on the season. Number one in the west. On to the Clippers – 12:32 AM

Jazz beat Blazers 118-113.
Beasley had 29 points. Clarkson with the 3 biggest baskets of the night, had 28 after a slow start. Markkanen just a simple 23 points on 13 FG.

The Jazz are going to win this game and go back to the first spot in the Western Conference – 12:30 AM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz will win this one: up 4, 3.8 left. Beasley’s 2 FTs sealed it. – 12:30 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Beasley makes the FTs, Simons misses a layup, Markkanen grabs the board. That’ll do it. Jazz will be 12-6. – 12:30 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Jazz yield a bucket … JC coughs it up unforced … defense leaves a lane to the hoop. Yikes. – 12:28 AM

Okay, Jordan Clarkson. 🔥🔥🔥 – 12:27 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Jordan Clarkson with 15 in the fourth quarter and seven down the stretch when the Jazz were absolutely dead in the water…..just a great three possessions for him – 12:27 AM

Portland challenging the call here. The call is overturned. Offensive foul on Markkanen – 12:20 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Billups is challenging Grant’s foul on Markkanen. Per this Blazers crowd, it will be overturned, as hey have committed zero fouls tonight. – 12:19 AM

Chauncey Billups is finally using his challenge to argue that Lauri Markkanen hooked Jerami Grant on that foul that was called on Grant. – 12:19 AM

Blazers take the lead on a Eubanks dunk off a Winslow assist. Portland 106, Utah 105 with 2:41 to play – 12:18 AM

Ben Anderson @BensHoops
He hasn’t been super sharp tonight, but this is probably one of the areas where you can use Olynyk’s playmaking in the half court.
Jazz missing Mike Conley’s leadership here with the the ball in his hands and Kelly can add some of that. – 12:15 AM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Jazz lead is down to 104-101….the turnovers leading to layups are killing them right now. Timeout, Will Hardy – 12:12 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Jazz have turned the ball over on their past couple possessions, and the Blazers are looking to push the ball downcourt at every opportunity. Hart’s FB layup gets Portland within 104-101 with 3:59 to go. Hardy calls timeout. – 12:12 AM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
3-point game again. A few bad decisions on offense, couple turnovers, and the Jazz lead is slipping away. 3:59 to go – 12:12 AM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Drew Eubanks is a huge part of why the Blazers were able to cut the lead and he’s adding so much energy to this Portland team tonight when they seem like they need it. – 12:07 AM

If you can get Malik Beasley a three every other minute, you might as well. He’s cooler than last night, and yet you’ll still take the 5-13 from 3 in 23 mins, no question.
Jazz up 101-91, 7:13 left. – 12:05 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Every time the Blazers seem on the verge of seizing momentum, the Jazz get a big shot. Beasley just made his fifth 3 of the game, and Utah leads 101-91 with 7:13 to go. Beasley 24p, Markkanen 21, and Clarkson 20 for the Jazz. – 12:05 AM

Jazz up 87-79 going into the 4th. Stabilized out of the timeout.
I’ll agree with the broadcast: that was maturity from Sexton to not try to drive one-on-one on Eubanks. Backed it out, and then repositioned for three. So much better than the final minute vs. PHI. – 11:53 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Jazz 87, Blazers 79: end of third quarter. 16 points, 7 assists/rebounds for @Anfernee Simons. 12 points, 4 rebounds for @Jusuf Nurkic. 11 points, 5 rebounds for @Josh Hart. 11 points for @Jerami Grant. – 11:53 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
End 3Q: Jazz 87, Blazers 79. A Beasley jumper and a Sexton 3 gave Utah a little breathing room at the end of the period. Can they run the offense efficiently enough without Conley in 4Q, though? Markkanen 21p and Beasley 19. – 11:53 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
End of three: the Jazz lead the Blazers 87-79 – 11:52 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Amazingly, the Blazers are only down 8 after their worst quarter of the season. – 11:52 PM

Blazers just went on a 15-2 to reduce their deficit to 82-79. Jazz called a TO. Grant hit a three and then Anfernee Simons hit two threes. – 11:49 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Simons buries another 3, and it’s a 17-2 run for Portland. Jazz have gotten stagnant, either missing 3s or driving into the teeth of the defense at the rim. Utah’s lead is just 82-79 with 1:27 left 3Q. – 11:49 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Jazz were up 19 and now they have a 3-point lead. Portland finally making shots after missing a lot. – 11:49 PM

Jazz’s lead, which was at 19, is now down to 3. Just some ill-advised drives from Utah, and Portland 3 balls finally falling. – 11:48 PM

The Jazz have opened a 76-58 lead in Portland…..thought the defense in the first half got lucky with Portland missing shots. Defense has been much better so far in the second half – 11:40 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Even without Conley, the Jazz are having great success getting to the rim now. That, coupled with Portland missing a few easy ones, has led to a 19-5 run. – 11:39 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress

That third-down call there to run Tavion Thomas made no sense.
Oregon 7, Utah 3. – 11:12 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
Pretty impressive 1st half by the Jazz. Were down 12 early. Down by 3 after 1. Put up 38 in the 2nd quarter behind Malik shooting and overall effort. No outlier performance just solid basketball. On back end of back to back after emotional win. Team has a vibe right now – 11:12 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Malik Beasley came off the bench for 15 points – 11:12 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Lauri Markkanen and Malik Beasley both have 15 points and Utah leads Portland 58-51 at the half.
Markkanen is 5/6 tonight and a ridiculous 20/24 in his last six quarters. – 11:11 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz up 58-51 at the half. Here’s the difference in the game so far, from Cleaning The Glass: pic.twitter.com/uW07P4oK3l11:11 PM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
HALFTIME: Jazz 58, Blazers 51. Utah outscores Portland 38-28 in 2Q. Markkanen and Beasley have 15p each for the Jazz. Dame is one of three Blazers with 10 points, though the bulk of his have come on an 8-9 FT performance; he’s 1-9 FGs, 0-8 on 3s. – 11:11 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz take a 58-51 lead over Portland into halftime. Lauri Markkanen with 15 to lead everyone. Bench was great getting Utah back into the game. – 11:10 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
Jazz were +19 after Mike Conley checked out with 2 fouls and interestingly Will Hardy never went back to Mike in the 1st half – 11:10 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Jazz 58, Blazers 51: halftime. 10 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds for @Anfernee Simons. 10 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists for @Jusuf Nurkic. 10 points, 5 assists for @Damian Lillard. Beasley and Markkanen with 15 apiece for the Jazz. – 11:10 PM

Carson Palmer wasn’t considered a favorite to win the Heisman Trophy until the last two games of the season when No. 7 USC beat a Top 25 UCLA team at the Rose Bowl and a Top 25 Notre Dame team at the Coliseum to make USC a Top 5 team. Could the same be true for Caleb Williams? – 11:07 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Utah’s defense gets off the field after good coverage on the slant by Clark Phillips III. – 11:06 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Kelly Olynyk couldn’t believe he didn’t get that steal on the dump off pass to Josh Hart
He screamed oh my god – 11:05 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Damian Lillard is 1 of 8 from the field and 0 of 7 on threes. Late 2nd. – 11:04 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
Wow the amount of threes tonight. Jazz and Blazers are both 6 of 22. Jazz have taken 22 of their 43 shots as threes and Blazers have taken 22 of their 35 shots as threes – 11:02 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Jadon Redding pushes a 38-yard FG attempt.
The Enis hold on second-and-4 from the 13 was a killer. The Vele catch there was taking Utah inside the 5. – 11:01 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
During that injury timeout, a fan appeared to be going back and forth with Collin Sexton. Security came in and removed the fan. Must have said something bad. – 11:01 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Vando collides violently with Dame trying to get a steal. He’s down on the court holding his right elbow. – 10:59 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Blazers and Jazz are a combined 12 of 44 on threes with 3 minutes remaining in the second quarter. – 10:59 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Lauri Markkanen has been great tonight on Grant – 10:59 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Lauri Markkanen was out for loooooong time. Comes back in and gets a putback of THT’s miss, plus a FT. – 10:58 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Nothing is falling for Dame tonight. – 10:57 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Rising to Kincaid for 16, Utah on the move here at the Oregon 32. – 10:56 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Probably worth paying Malik Beasley a bit more attention. He’s got 15 points in 11 minutes tonight after going for 27 last night versus the Suns. – 10:53 PM
Utah Jazz @utahjazz
Fun fact: Out of Malik’s 84 made field goals this season, 55 are from three.
Beas counter: 🐝🐝🐝 pic.twitter.com/1uCFIpCATY10:52 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
If I were the Jazz it would be hard for me to think Malik Beasley is not a part of the long term equation. Guys who shoot it at this level in the league aren’t that easy to come by – 10:51 PM
David Locke @DLocke09
Anyone else having issues on the Utah Jazz app getting the broadcast? – 10:51 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
That’s a shoddy piece of defense from Utah on third-and-9. – 10:49 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Beasley appears to be on another heater — 12p on 4-6 FGs, 3-5 from 3. Jazz are tied up now at 38-all, with 6:52 left til halftime. – 10:48 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
I don’t think any of Portland’s six turnovers so far have been forced – 10:48 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
No top five draft pick Shaedon Sharpe is already one of the most dynamic players in this rookie class….he’s made Portland a ton better – 10:47 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Nix is 4-for-4 for 47 yards, lots of YAC. Utah offering little resistance. – 10:45 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
The Jazz had quite negative views on Anfernee Simons in the pre-draft process… He’s got a quick 10p on the Jazz so far. – 10:44 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Portland has been getting great looks all game so it was just a matter of time before some of them started to drop – 10:44 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Jazz were already on the postgame flight to LA by the time the refs called that foul. Moda Center crowd is displeased. Justise Winslow T’d up in the aftermath. – 10:44 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz shot 27 percent from the field in the first quarter they are 2-15 from three overall – 10:40 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Jazz trailed by as many as 12, but an 11-2 run cuts Portland’s lead to 23-20. I think you gotta chalk that up to a win considering Utah shot just 7 of 26. – 10:39 PM
Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
Utah wins the toss and will defer.
Bo Nix and Co. up first. – 10:38 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz crawl back within 23-20 by the end of the first quarter. Fontecchio caps an 11-2 run with an off the bounce three. Utah trailed by as much as 17-5 – 10:38 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Blazers up 23-20 after 1Q. Portland shooting just 1-9 from three, Jazz just 2-14. – 10:38 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
End 1Q: Blazers 23, Jazz 20. Pretty wild that Utah can shoot 7-26 overall, 2-14 from 3, and only be down three points. They closed on an 11-2 run. Portland going 1-9 from deep and committing four turnovers helped, as did the Jazz’s five O-rebs. – 10:38 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Blazers 23, Jazz 20: end of first quarter. 6 points, 2 rebounds for @Jusuf Nurkic. 4 points, 4 assists for @Damian Lillard. POR shooting 45 percent, UTA 27 percent. – 10:37 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
I would love hear @Shaedon Sharpe‘s response to the question: “Who is ZZ Top?” – 10:35 PM

Eric Walden @tribjazz
And at the 4:04 mark 1Q, the Jazz get a point from someone other than Markkanen, as Sexton hits 2 FTs. – 10:28 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Two fouls on mike Conley – 10:26 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Why in the world is Portland trying to guard Markkanen with Simons – 10:26 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
And now it appears the Jazz should eschew 3s and just have Lauri dunk every possession. That should work, right? – 10:25 PM
Tony Mejia @MejiaDinero
First 4% CBB loss of the season on OVER 150. Two missed layups on final two possessions and no late-game fouling from Portland despite Seattle shooting 4/10 from FT line for the game. Sucks. 4%s on TWolves & St. Thomas (MN) came in pic.twitter.com/SOADKDPU1v10:25 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
This game is going to get away from the Jazz if they don’t put some good possessions together soon – 10:24 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Portland is ignoring Jarred Vanderbilt so Will Hardy has to take him out – 10:24 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Vando has been very close to two dead-ass serious 3s, but each has rimmed out. Jazz are 1-11 overall, 1-9 from 3. – 10:23 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Pretty predictable start here for the Jazz – 10:21 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
Utah missing a ton of open threes. – 10:21 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Both Clarkson and Olynyk have made some questionable defensive plays, or perhaps non-plays in this game so far. – 10:19 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz start 1-7 from the field and trail Portland 13-5. Timeout Will Hardy – 10:18 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
For once not a slow start for the Blazers. – 10:18 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Blazers shouldn’t bother shooting another 3 until the Jazz defense proves it can stop someone — anyone — on the interior. 10 PITP already for Portland. – 10:17 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Lauri Markkanen already has a miss in this game. He’s only allowed two more. – 10:14 PM

A lot of criticism from Nuggets fans regarding Tim Connelly, but his list of second round draft picks now includes Nikola Jokić, Monte Morris, Jarred Vanderbilt, and Bol Bol.
Bol’s averaging 13 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 blocks with 70% true shooting. That’s nuts. – 9:10 PM
