Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers: Prediction and Betting Tips

03:00, Jun 17 2021
Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction for game five of the NBA playoffs clash at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City. As the series tied at 2-2, the Utah Jazz will host the LA Clippers on home court in game five of the Western Conference semi-finals. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips. 

Utah Jazz back at home court in search of a crucial win

As the series moves back to Salt Lake City for one game, the Utah Jazz will be under pressure to win and take the lead before moving back to LA for game six. It was expected of the Jazz to win at least one of the games at the Staples Center but Quin Snyder’s team couldn’t deal with the Clipper’s high-intensity defense as they lost with large margins.

In game four, the Jazz were off to a very slow start scoring just 13 points in the first quarter and trailed by 24 at the half. Despite Donovan Mitchell’s game-high 37 points, his teammates couldn’t help him as the best scorer of the other Jazz players was Ingles with 19 points.

Jazz Key Points

  • Utah have scored 117 points per game in the playoffs
  • The jazz are shooting 47% field goals
  • Utah have the best record from the three-point distance with 41% shooting

 

Spirits are high as the Clippers tie the series with the conference leaders

The majority of the analysts wrote off the Clippers and didn’t predict they would win their two home games in the manner they did. Even the first two matches they lost in Utah were by just three and six points. Coming into this series after a seven-game first-round stunner against the Mavericks, Tyronn Lue’s team showed great character and determination to tie the series 2-2.

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are having amazing playoffs and the duo have kept the Clippers in the series against Utah after scoring 31 points each in game four. Shooting from distance will be the key in game five for the Clippers. They made 52% of the shots from two-point distance and that kind of shooting will make them very hard to beat.

Clippers Key Points

  • Clippers have scored on average 113 points per game in the playoffs
  • The Clippers are scoring 39% of their shots from the arc of three points
  • 48.5% of the Clippers field goals are scored

 

 Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers Prediction

The Clippers have been involved in very exciting playoff games this season. After eliminating the Mavericks in seven games, they are having another exceptional series against the Jazz. 

The Jazz were and still are the favorites to win the series but there will be some concerns after the last two games in Los Angeles. Coach Snyder can’t go on relying only on Donovan Mitchell in the offense. 

Utah are the favorites to win the game with Vbet paying 1.68. We will back that bet as we think the team with the best record in the regular season will regroup and put on a great performance in front of their fans.
