The Utah Jazz had everything under control on Wednesday night.

The Jazz had just finished another explosive quarter, took a 10-point lead into the final period, only 12 minutes away from sending Portland to its sixth straight loss.

“We knew that we were in control at that point in time,” said Jazz guard Trey Burke of the team's feeling after the third quarter.

That was until Dorell Wright shook his head.

Portland 92, Utah 89.

After being outscored, 26-18, held under 20 points for the second time in three quarters, the Blazers looked defeated. The offense was out of sync, the defense was shaky, the momentum was on life support.

In the third quarter, Portland shot 27.8 percent, allowed the Jazz to shoot 52.2 percent, and committed eight turnovers for 11 Utah points.

This was a Jazz team missing its star in Gordon Hayward, coming off two straight losses, and yet, the Blazers were on the verge of another defeat.

Wright had seen enough after 36 minutes of play. He could be see on the sidelines shaking his head in disgust, urging his teammates to pickup their games if they wanted stop this losing streak. It wasn’t just talk, but action, too.

With the Blazers trailing, 68-60, Wright nailed back-to-back 24-foot 3-pointers, grabbed a defensive rebound, came back the other way, assisted on a basket from Joel Freeland, and just like that, the Blazers were within five.

It was the first six points of an eight-point, three-rebound fourth quarter from Wright, who helped the Blazers outscore the Jazz 37-24 to steal the victory.

“He’s an emotional player,” said Freeland of Wright. “… We realized we had to pick it up and he was one of the main guys telling us, ‘We got to get our stuff together and step it up and get stops.’ ”

What Wright started, Damian Lillard and LaMarcus Aldridge finished. The two All-Stars combined for 22 points in the final period and halted what had been the longest losing streak since April 2013, when Portland ended the season losing 13 straight.
