This first round game of the seven game series see the Jazz traveling to Los Angeles to face the Clippers.
This exciting series is all tied up and we should have an excellent game 7 on our hands.
Utah had a chance to close out the series at home, but lost a close game. Can they bounce back and take game 7 on the road?
Gordon Hayward has continued to expose the Clippers weaknesses at the small forward position, lighting Los Angeles up for 31 points on 9-20 shooting, while also grabbing 7 rebounds.
In the 5 games that Hayward has played significant minutes he is averaging 27 points and 8 rebounds, clearly MVP caliber numbers,
The Clippers won’t have an answer for him so Hayward will fill up the stat sheet, but will his teammates be able to help him secure the win?
Rudy Gobert put up another good performance against the Los Angeles front line, as he scored 15 points, pulled down 9 rebounds and had 3 blocks. He continues to be a key presence in the paint for Utah.
I expect Gobert to hit around his season averages in this pivotal game 7 and it may be enough to put them over the top.
George Hill had 22 points and was a surprising +7 when he was on the floor. I expect him to have a poor shooting night in game 7.
Los Angeles Clippers
Chris Paul has been absolutely amazing in this series, and has made Utah’s defenders look silly trying to guard hm.
Going up against George Hill you can clearly see the talent disparity between the two veterans, and Paul should have another game with 25+ points and 8 or more assists.
The Clippers have never had a completely healthy team for a deep run into the playoffs, but they still have one of the best point guards in the game and that may be enough to win game 7.
DeAndre Jordan had 13 points and 18 rebounds in the Clippers game 6 win, but he committed 7 turnovers and shot just 3-11 from the free throw line.
I hate the “Hack a Jordan” gameplan but late in the fourth quarter his inability to shoot free throws may be the difference in the game.
