The voice of the Trail Blazers, Brian Wheeler, delivers the Call of the Game. Heading into the fourth quarter, the Utah Jazz appeared to have the game well in hand. The visitors outscored their Northwest Division counterparts 34-21 in the third quarter and held a nine-point lead with just 12 minutes remaining. But someone forgot to tell Damian Lillard and the Trail Blazers the game was over. Portland immediately turned up their intensity and effort to start the final period, resulting in a 16-2 run that was capped by a spectacular inbounds alley-oop from Nicolas Batum to Lillard. Riding the wave of momentum, Portland powered past Utah, 102-94, ending their three-game losing streak.
