Al Jefferson was singing. Lines and lyrics. Joyously out loud. All while combing his hair, tapping his feet and smiling wide.

How good was Big Al feeling?

So good he had to say it.

"I feel good," said Jefferson, emphasizing every word.

So did the Jazz. Proving once again they won't be counted out, Utah fought back to steal a crucial 102-97 victory against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday. Paul Millsap played the biggest part. But everyone from Derrick Favors to Jamaal Tinsley shined.

Twelve games remain for the Jazz. And Utah continues to believe — and show — its playoff-worthy.
