  • Los Angeles Clippers’ Paul George has double doubles in 2 of the 3 games in this series so far
  • Los Angeles Clippers’ Paul George has 6 double doubles in the playoffs so far

Utah Jazz Form & Team News


Utah ran over Memphis in the first round of the playoffs, but they are having a much tougher time against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Donovan Mitchell was the spark the Jazz needed against the Grizzlies and he started this series in sensational fashion by racking up 48 points in Game 1.

Royce O’Neal and Rudy Gobert combined for 23 rebounds as the Jazz dominated inside the paint and all of that resulted in a 112-109 victory that gave them an early lead.

Mitchell then followed up that 45-point showing in Game 1 with 37 more in Game 2, and that proved to be the catalyst for a 117-11 win for Utah.

Mitchell was ‘held’ to 30 in Game 3 before exiting to rest his ankle, but this time his scoring exploits proved to be in vain as Kawhi Leonard and Paul George put the Jazz to the sword, 132-106.

Despite an ankle issue Mitchell is not listed on the injury report at this time, but Mike Conley (hamstring) and Elijah Hughes (illness) both remain day-to-day.

Los Angeles Clippers Form & Team News


Los Angeles made hard work of the first round series with Dallas, losing the first two games before battling back to win it in seven.

They are now going to have to repeat that feat against the Utah Jazz– and that is something no NBA team has ever managed in league history.

Paul George’s double double in Game 1 proved to be in vain because the Clippers 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, with his 37 points helping condemn LA to a 117-111 loss.

The Clippers finally figured out a way to slow him down – if only a little bit – in Game 3, and when they needed it the most they got big games from two of their biggest stars – George and Kawhi Leonard.

Leonard put up 34 points and 12 rebounds for a double double, and George contributed 31 points as LA blew out the Jazz in Game 3, putting themselves right back into the series with a 132-106 win.

They remain one of the healthier teams in the playoffs too with only Serge Ibaka (back) listed on the injury report. He remains day-to-day.

Verdict

LA needed big games from Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in Game 3 and they got it in a blow-out.
