This first round game of the seven game series see the Clippers traveling to Salt Lake to face the Jazz.
The Clippers were able to win the first game in Salt Lake and will look to go up 3-1 after this one.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers postseason hopes took a possibly insurmountable bad turn in Game 3. Blake Griffin injured his right big toe and will be out for the remainder of the playoffs.
His injury not only hurts the Clippers chances of making a deep run in the Western Conference Playoffs, but you have to worry if they can even get out of the first round without Griffin’s dynamic play.
DeAndre Jordan will be relied on more to carry the scoring in the post, as he put up another great game scoring 17 points and pulling in 13 rebounds.
With Griffin out it wouldn’t surprise me to see Jordan get a 20-20 game in game 4.
Chris Paul should clearly be in the running for Playoff MVP so far, as he has absolutely dominated the Jazz backcourt.
He scored 34 points, had 10 assists and grabbed 7 rebounds in the Clippers win. I expect another huge game for him as he simply cannot be stopped.
Gordon Hayward finally had the performance I was expecting out of him all series long, as he scored 40 points on 13-21 shooting to lead all players in scoring.
Hayward and the Jazz now have a fighting chance with Blake Griffin out of the series, and another big performance should be in store.
George Hill has done a terrible job defensively against Chris Paul, but he was able to provide some scoring of his own as he had 26 points in the loss. He will need to stay out of foul trouble if the Jazz are going to have any shot tying the series up.
Derrick Favors looked terrible in game 3. Scoring just 2 points in 38 minutes and finishing with a -17 plus minus rating.
He won’t have to worry about Blake Griffin, but with DeAndre Jordan playing at such a high level he will still need to step things up on the defensive end.
