"The Coach's" 3-Game All Inclusive NBA Report
(NBA) Utah vs. Portland, 04/11/2015 6:00 PM, Score: 111 - 105
Point Spread: -8.00 | -110.00 Portland (Home)
Result: Loss
The Portland Trailblazers are banged up ahead of tonight's home game against Utah, as LaMarcus Aldridge and Arron Afflalo are the latest casualties for a team that has had to face plenty of adversity this season. They still own a stellar home record, and I think they'll be able to handle Utah tonight.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Home Cookin' - Portland has won four of the last five home meetings with Utah, and four of their last five home games overall. The Blazers are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games versus a team with a losing road record.

2. Damian Lillard - The Blazers PG has averaged over 22 points per game in three games versus Utah this season, and he'll be looking to pick up the slack with Aldridge out for the home team.

3. X-Factor - This will be the second game in as many nights for Utah, and fatigue could be a factor.

Selection: This is a play on the Portland Trailblazers.(8*)
