Playoff positioning in focus as Blazers face Jazz

The Utah Jazz and Portland Trail Blazers know they're both going to be in the postseason, but neither team quite knows what spot they'll be in just yet.

The picture is a bit clearer for the Jazz (50-19) as the teams enter their Wednesday night matchup in Salt Lake City.

Utah can clinch the No. 1 overall seed if it gets past the Portland, Oklahoma City and Sacramento in the stretch run. The Jazz will finish no lower than No. 2 in the Western Conference if other scenarios with the only other top-seed contender, the Phoenix Suns (48-20), play out.
