The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Charlotte Hornets in their last outing, coming away out on top 107-102, while out in Utah the Jazz weren’t as lucky coming away on the losing end of 112-104 point loss to the Boston Celtics.
The Los Angeles Clippers did a fantastic job holding off the Hornets all night. Charlotte shot just 43% from the field, and that was what held them behind all game, however a lot of that also had to do with the play of Kemba Walker.
Walker shot just 4-18 from the field, and that was the reason why Los Angeles was able to pull away ahead.
Kemba just gave up way too many possession to the Clippers, and that’s why they were able to earn the win.
But next game, they need to do that again. Utah is an even more stacked team at putting the ball in the basket, so the Clippers need to do another good job containing their stars.
If the Clippers can hold Gordon Hayward and George Hill in check, they’ll have themselves a chance, but if they don’t Utah is just going to continue piling on the points.
So if Los Angles can force them into more shots attempts than makes they’ll have a better percentage at winning this game.
The Utah Jazz basically gave this game away to the Boston Celtics. They just didn’t do a great job of competing for 48 minutes, and in the end that came back to hurt them.
Boston thoroughly outplayed them in the first half, outscoring them 58-44 through the first two quarters of play. An after that the Jazz really didn’t have an answer.
They continued fighting back in the third and fourth period, but by then it was already a little to late as the Boston Celtics already had a giant lead on them.
But a good thing did possibly come of this. Utah is known for their defense, yet last outing it was nowhere to be found. That means next game they need to make that a priority.
The Los Angeles Clippers are just way to good of a team to outscore, so Utah is going to need to shut down either Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan in order for them to pull out the victory.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: -7
Since Chris Paul isn’t going to be playing in this game, I can see Utah coming away out on top by 7 points or more. So because of that, I’ll pick Utah to come away with the win.
