Utah Jazz Form & Team News


Utah may have misfired in their first playoff game, but they have been red-hot since that night.

The Jazz suffered a shock home defeat to Memphis in Game 1 in the first round, but then Donovan Mitchell returned.

Mitchell was the spark they were missing and since he has returned they have won six straight games.

The talented guard averaged 28.5 points per game as Utah reeled off four consecutive wins to book their place in the conference semi-finals.

He has showed no signs of slowing down during this series with Los Angeles – in fact he has been even more impressive.

Mitchell had his way with LA in the regular season and has continued in that vein in Games 1 and 2 of this playoff series, following up his 45 points in Game 1 with 37 more in Game 2.

Those stats have been key in 112-109 and 117-111 wins that have put the Jazz in control.

Mitchell’s injury issues appear to be firmly behind him and he will be raring to go in Game 3 in Los Angeles.

Mike Conley (hamstring) remains day-to-day on the injury report alongside Elijah Hughes (illness), but Miye Oni (back) made his return in Game 3 and could get some minutes here.

Los Angeles Clippers Form & Team News


Los Angeles made hard work of the first round and now find themselves in trouble in the conference semi-finals.

The Clippers twice had to come from behind to win a seven-game marathon series with Dallas in the opening round of the postseason.

LA were beaten in three of their four home games, but they blew out Dallas 126-111 in the decider at the Staples Center and that set up this meeting with Utah.

Now they once again find themselves trailing 2-0 after the first two games of the playoff series.

Paul George’s double double in Game 1 proved to be in vain because they could not stop Donovan Mitchell, resulting in a 112-109 defeat.

They were not blown out in Game 2 either, but once again they could not contain Mitchell despite paying extremely close attention to the Utah guard.

LA lost the game 117-111 and that means they are in desperate need of a win in Game 3.

The good news is they are not littered with injuries – only Serge Ibaka (back) is listed on the injury report as he remains day-to-day.
