SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz got their most lopsided win of the season, beating the Portland Trail Blazers 123-85.

Bojan Bogdanovic led the team in scoring for the third straight game contributing 27 points, but left the game in the third quarter with a right leg contusion.

Portland was led in scoring by Trendon Watford who scored 22 points.

First Quarter

The Jazz got off to a clunky start against the Trail Blazers turning the ball over and missing early shots.

But once they settled into a groove Portland was able to offer little resistance to the Jazz attack.

Bojan Bogdanovic continued his recent hot streak with seven points on 2-5 shooting in the opening period.

After one, the Jazz led the Trail Blazers 33-15.

Second Quarter

The Jazz continued to run away from Portland in the second quarter, pushing their lead to as much as 31 before the Trail Blazers slightly called back at the end of the half.

Portland has lost four of their last five games by at least 30, the first team to ever do that.

At the half, Bogdanovic had 15 points on 5-9 shooting to lead the Jazz, while Ben McLemore had seven points to lead the Blazers.

After two, the Jazz led Portland 63-35.

Third Quarter

Quin Snyder continued to play his normal rotation through the third quarter as the Jazz manhandled the inexperienced Portland roster.

The Jazz lead climbed to as much as 51 late in the quarter before Portland trimmed it to 47 heading into the final period.

Bogdanovic had 27 to lead the Jazz for the third straight outing but was ruled out for the remainder of the game with a right leg contusion.

After three, the Jazz led Portland 96-49.

Fourth Quarter

Snyder was able to the end of his roster to open the third quarter Nickeil Alexander-Walker finding rare minutes since being acquired at the trade deadline.

The majority of the period was played with Alexander-Walker, Eric Paschall, Udoka Azubuike, Jared Butler, and Juancho Hernangomez on the floor.

No Jazz player played more than 24 minutes as the team coasted to an easy victory at home.

The Jazz downed Portland 123-85.
