Utah has been hot, despite a host of guards on the injury report. Ricky Rubio and Dante Exum have both been out for over a week and will be out for at least another, each. Grayson Allen was out and came back about the time Raul Neto, who was thrown into a starting spot, went out.
The most important guy, Donovan Mitchell, has been in the lineup and stepping up, though. He scored 28 points in Utah’s 100–94 win over Detroit on Monday. It was the Jazz’s fourth win in a row since Rubio went down and sixth in its last seven.
The Spida has scored at least 26 in six games in a row now and he’s taking well over 20 field goal attempts per game in that span. He was named Western Conference Player of the Week, right at the time Utah needed him most.
The ball in Mitchell’s hands has led to more penetration and more open 3-pointers for Kyle Korver in his corner. He scored 19 against the Pistons on Monday.
Rudy Gobert gobbled up 25 rebounds against Andre Drummond. That tied a career-high, according to my research at Basketball-Reference.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers couldn’t stop Anthony Davis on Monday. The Brow scored 46 and Julius Randle backed him up with 27. Montrezl Harrell scored 26 in 34 minutes, which was incredible, considering he was Doc Rivers’ only reasonable option to man Davis.
Marcin Gortat will play more in this game against Gobert, who will be a load on the glass but won’t torch him on the offensive end like Davis did.
It was a third consecutive loss for the Clippers, who have failed to capitalize on the Lakers’ slump and put a greater distance between them and their tenants. The Clips still lead the Lakers with some games in hand, though.
No team in the league has made more free throws than the Clippers, thanks to the second-most attempts and the fourth-best shooting percentage.
Lou Williams and Danilo Gallinari lead the way in that department. Both guys average nearly six attempts per game and make them more than 90 percent of the time.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Clippers NBA Prediction: Los Angeles.
I like the Clippers for a couple reasons. The first is the depth they have available that Utah doesn’t. The second is tied in with the first and that’s guard defense. Rivers has multiple defenders to throw at Mitchell, who won’t go off in this game.
