This first round game of the seven game series sees the Jazz traveling to Los Angeles to face the Clippers.
This exciting series is all tied up at two games a piece and this is a pivotal game 5.
The Jazz saw Rudy Gobert return to the starting lineup. He helped lead the Jazz to victory as the team avoided a 3-1 hole.
Gobert only played 23 minutes but he was dominant.
He shot 6-6 from the floor to finish with 15 points, 13 rebounds and 2 blocks. His ability to clog the lane can be the difference maker in the Jazz winning this series.
Look for another big double-double from Gobert as his battle with DeAndre Jordan will be a good one.
Gordon Hayward suffered from food poisoning in Game 4 and only played 9 minutes the entire game.
The Jazz expect him to be recovered for Game 5 and I expect him to continue his strong play against the Clippers wing defenders.
George Hill has been horrible on the defensive end of the floor and was only able to go 4-11 from the floor.
Utah will need a better game from the veteran point guard to steal game 5 on the road.
Los Angeles Clippers
Chris Paul is playing like he is still in his 25-year-old prime, completely dismantling George Hill’s defense every chance he gets. He picked up his fourth double-double of the series in Game 4, scoring 27 points and dishing out 12 assists.
It’s automatic that Chris Paul is going to win this matchup in every game, and I don’t see Hill slowing him down at all.
In Blake Griffin’s absence, I expected DeAndre Jordan to get the ball early and often against the Jazz, but he only took 8 shots in the entire game.
Eve with a stout defender on him he should still get more touches around the rim.
If Jordan gets 15 shot attempts he could put up a quiet 22 points and still grab double digit rebounds.
