After a grueling seven games against the Dallas Mavericks in Round 1, the Los Angeles Clippers are rewarded with the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and top team in the NBA, the Utah Jazz, in Round 2.
During the regular season, the Jazz had the fourth-best Offensive Rating in the league (116.5) and the third-best Defensive Rating (107.5). After scoring just 109 points in their Game 1 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, the Jazz got Donovan Mitchell back on the court and had an offensive awakening, averaging 127 points per game for the rest of the series.
The Jazz wont the season series with the Clippers 2-1, but Utah will be without its point guard Mike Conley to start the series. The Clippers will be without Serge Ibaka who is still ailing from back spasms.
While the Clippers are dogs in the series, their odds to win the series in six games are the shortest on the board followed by Jazz’s odds to win the series in seven.
