NBA Game Summary - Portland at Utah



(Friday, April 11th)

Final Score: Portland 111, Utah 99

Salt Lake City, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - Wesley Matthews poured in 21 points to help the Portland Trail Blazers to a 111-99 victory over the Utah Jazz on Friday.

"I like our team, I think we're coming together at the right time," said Blazers head coach Terry Stotts. "We've won seven out of eight. Defensively we've been locked in. I think our offense is starting to come around again. We're all looking forward to the playoffs."

Portland now trails the Houston Rockets by a half-game for the fourth playoff seed in the Western Conference.
