Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers won four in a row before losing games to the Thunder and the Warriors. Since then, they have started a new winning streak that is already up to six.
The success has coincided with the return of Blake Griffin, who scored 20 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and dished four assists in Los Angeles’ five-point win over Denver on Thursday night.
Point guard Milos Teodosic has also played in the last four games, averaging 12 points per and better than six assists. He and Griffin are LA’s two best playmakers, and are making all the difference in freeing up Lou Williams and DeAndre Jordan for open looks.
Jordan hasn’t played in the last two games, though. He has a bum ankle but could be back on Saturday. There are also trade rumors swirling around his name. Reportedly, he wants to go to Houston and play with Chris Paul again.
But the Clippers are in the playoffs as of now and might not be so quick to trade him after all that they have gone through just to be in position to play in the postseason.
Utah has plenty of trade rumors making their way around its clubhouse, too.
There are talks around just about everybody except Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert.
The Jazz doesn’t have any one monster piece to move but it has enough small pieces that it could get a nice head-start on a rebuild that might not be so lengthy with Mitchell, Gobert and Head Coach Quinn Snyder in place.
Utah is on national television on Friday night (8:30 local time). So while it doesn’t have to travel, it will be on the second night of a back-to-back for this game.
The Jazz has really been struggling and I think it has a lot to do with the trade rumors. It isn’t a great team to begin with but all the extra talk has made for an uncomfortable environment in Utah.
Until the deadline passes, there won’t be a strong level of comfortability in Utah.
