This first round game of the seven game series see the Clippers traveling to Salt Lake to face the Jazz.
The Jazz will look to close out this series at home and avoid a game 7 in Los Angeles.
Los Angeles Clippers
Chris Paul was one assist shy of picking up his fifth straight double double in the series, as he put in another excellent performance.
He scored 28 points on 10-19 from the field (4-6 from 3pt range), and dished out 9 assists.
Paul will have to play at an even higher level for the Clippers to avoid elimination, and I think he can put up the numbers.
DeAndre Jordan put up his fifth double double of the series, but still isn’t being used as a second scoring option for the Clippers. He scored 14 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the loss.
Facing Rudy Gobert may be why he isn’t being utilized often in the paint, but the Clippers need to get him the ball and try to get te JAzz big men into early foul trouble.
J.J Reddick scored 26 points in the loss and his sharp shooting will be counted on for the Clippers in this one.
He was 3-7 from behind the arc and will need a similar performance in order for Los Angeles to avoid being eliminated.
Gordon Hayward dropped 27 points, grabbed 8 rebounds, and dished out 4 assists in the pivotal Game 5 win for Utah. Coming into this series I expected Hayward to struggle, since he had poor season numbers against Los Angeles.
However outside of the game where he only played 9 minutes, he is averaging 26 points and 8 rebounds per game.
Closing out the series at home will be the priority for Hayward and the Jazz, and he should be able to produce the numbers to get them into the second round.
Rudy Gobert returned from his knee injury and has put up two straight double double performances. Keeping Jordan in check on the defensive end of the floor has also been a priority for Gobert.
Look for him to have another good game and lead the Jazz into the second round.
