Brandon Roy and the Portland Trailblazers were in to Salt Lake City to play the Utah Jazz.

Early on, veteran Gerald Wallace giving rookie Derrick Favors a big denial. But the rook, would not be deterred, comes back a little later with the empahatic dunk. That throwdown brings the Jazz to within 5.

The Trailblazers got a great performance from Nicolas Batum who added 21. And he was doing it from all over the court -- the deep "J" here.

Then providing a little "D", the steal, he's off the races and gets the "and one". Portland extends their lead to double digits.

And we started this highlight pack with Gerald Wallace, so let's finish with him. The big man filling the lane, taking the pass and getting the hoop and the harm. Wallace finishes with 29 points as Portland goes onto a 98-87, assuring Utah of its second losing season in 28 years. The Blazers move into sole possession of the sixth playoff spot in the Western Conference, a half game ahead of New Orleans.
