How to Watch: Trail Blazers vs. Jazz Game 6 of 1999 West semifinals

Portland Trail Blazers

This Trail Blazers Classic game was played on May 27, 1999.

But now that Game 6 will be re-airing on NBCSNW tonight.

It was a clinching 1999 Western Conference semifinals game for the Trail Blazers at the Rose Garden after defeating the Jazz, 92-80.

Portland was led by six-year wing player Isaiah Rider, who scored 24 points, while shooting guard Jim Jackson had 17 off the bench. 

In this Game 6, the Mailman did not deliver thanks to Blazers power forward Brian Grant .

Utah’s big man Karl Malone had one of his worst playoff performances. He scored just eight points, going 3-of-16 from the field. It was Jeff Hornacek, who led Utah with 21 points. Hornacek also made one of two free throws with just under 90 seconds remaining to cut Portland’s lead to two.

The Trail Blazers advanced to the Western Conference Finals in front of a sellout crowd in Portland. The Jazz were the West champions in 1997 and 1998. But it was Portland’s turn in 1999 as Utah lost its 11th straight playoff game in Rip City.
