Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers: Prediction and Betting Tips
Utah Jazz to prove they have improved
The Utah Jazz weren’t troubled in their first-round series against the Memphis Grizzlies apart from game one where they surprisingly lost. Utah came back with four consecutive wins to close the series 4-1 and have a long rest before their semi-final clash against the Clippers.
Averaging 40.6% from the three-point range second only to the Nets, Utah have the second-best offensive rating in the NBA and although the Clippers are stronger than the Grizzlies but Utah want to prove that they are a different team than they were last year when they lost in the playoffs after leading 3-1.
Tired Los Angeles Clippers need to up their game
The Clippers played one of the most bizarre series in the NBA as for six games no team could win at their homecourt. In game seven, the Clippers were decisive and won the game after great performances from Kawhi Leonard and Paul George who averaged 32 and 23 points respectively in the series against the Mavericks.
Coach Tyronn Lue can’t rely on just two layers against the NBA’s top team. Other players must step up and help Leonard and George in the games. The Clippers have the ninth-best offense in the playoffs with an average of 111.1 points. But they need to perform much better against the Jazz if they want to win the series.
- Utah are averaging 123.4 points per game in the playoffs
- The Clippers are averaging 111.1 points per game in the playoffs
- The Jazz are shooting 40.6% from the three-point range
- The Clippers are shooting 37.3% from the arc
Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers Prediction
Two days are separating the seven-game series of the Clippers that took them two weeks and their first game against the best team in the NBA. we don’t think the Clippers will be ready for this match physically and we might even see some injuries to their players as the series plays on.
As for the Jazz, they feel this is a very good chance for them to make it to the conference finals after gaining the home-court advantage by finishing first in the Western Conference and the fact that Donovan Mitchell is having his best-ever season yet.
We think Utah will win the first game of the series.
