The Portland Trail Blazers are tanking, and that’s quite clear with their game results of late.

Portland was beaten 123-85 by the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night, and the game was far more lopsided than the final score indicates.

The Blazers outscored Utah 36-27 in the fourth quarter with the game out of hand. But through three quarters, the Jazz led 96-49.

Over their last six games, the Blazers have been outscored by 194 points (or by 32.3 points a game), the worst point differential ever over a six-game span. This 38-point loss — and again, it was much worse in reality — came after a 43-point loss (124-81) on Monday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Now, this isn’t on the players — it’s not at all an effort thing! — or the coaching staff. It’s just the reality of the current healthy roster.

Here’s some of the Twitter reaction to the Blazers’ loss:
