Jazz vs Clippers Prediction

Jazz to Win on Moneyline

Game 1 was as close as they get, with the Jazz edging out a three-point win in the end. The Clippers came into that game after a grueling series against Dallas that went to seven games, so fatigue could have played a role in the end. In any case, we are once again going with the Jazz in Game 2 because we think that they have a well-rounded team and good support from their fans, which could prove crucial in this series.

Jordan Clarkson Over 18.5 Total Points

With Mike Conley Jr. out once again, the other Jazz players will have to share the load. In Game 1, the offensive output was almost completely put before Donovan Mitchell who scored 45 points. However, Jordan Clarkson scored 18 points in that game and we can see him scoring more in Game 2. After all, his average in the playoffs is 18.6 points on 25.2 minutes per game. However, Clarkson played 28 minutes in Game 1 and we wouldn’t be surprised if he played even more in Game 2.

Kawhi Leonard Over 28.5 Total Points

Our third Jazz vs Clippers prediction is for Kawhi Leonard to score more than 28 points. Leonard averages 31 points per game in the playoffs, so that sounds like a logical bet. Yes, Leonard was reduced to 23 points in Game 1 and he had a poor shooting performance. Some of it was definitely due to the great defense by the Jazz, but we believe that Leonard was a bit tired from carrying the Clippers in round one of the playoffs and that he will bounce back to his usual stats in the second game of the series.

Jazz vs Clippers Game 2 preview – Who will come on top in Game 2?

In addition to our Jazz vs Clippers predictions, we also want to have a more detailed look at the two teams ahead of their next duel:

Utah Jazz

The Jazz have shown that they are not the top seed without a reason. After they eliminated the Grizzlies in five games in the first round of the playoffs, the team managed to get the win in Game 1 of the conference semis. It was a tough game, but the Jazz ended on top in the end, even though they didn’t have Mike Conley Jr. at their disposal. Unfortunately, this will also be the case for Game 2.

Los Angeles Clippers

Perhaps the Clippers have felt the effect of having to play seven games against the Mavericks in Game 1 of the Jazz vs Clippers series, but things are unlikely to get easier for them. The team will simply have to overcome this adversity, just like they overcame possible elimination in the last two games against the Mavs. As the case was for most of the playoffs, the Clippers will miss Serge Ibaka with a nagging back injury.
