Jazz vs. Clippers Prediction
Just like Philly, the Jazz are a one-seed favored on the road after a brutal loss in Game 5.
The difference here is that Los Angeles is still missing a key kog in Kawhi Leonard. It didn’t matter on Wednesday night, as Paul George finally became Playoff P and put LA on his back en route to a win.
He also wasn’t alone. Marcus Morris had 25, Reggie Jackson put up 22, and the Clippers hit 40 percent of their 40 threes.
Utah, on the other hand, got an underwhelming performance from Donovan Mitchell, who scored just 21 points on 6-of-19 shooting. This game proved that for all of their shooting and ball moving wizardry, without their engine operating in peak form, they’re incredibly vulnerable.
So which Mitchell will show up on Friday? The Jazz haven’t been in a pressure packed situation all season, whereas the Clippers have been in the pressure cooker since the third game of the first round. They have suddenly become a team that thrives in these moments.
And then there is this: both Mitchell and Mike Conley – yet to play in this series – are both questionable.
Even so, the other things the Clippers are is a team that does not do well with prosperity. This series has felt like a seven gamer all the way. That doesn’t change.
