Jazz vs Clippers Prediction

Jazz to Win on Moneyline

So far, both teams have been good at home and managed to win two games each. So, we expect this trend to continue in Game 5, especially since the Jazz are playing in front of a very engaging crowd. In any case, the Jazz need to get a win here to ensure that they will have a chance to play Game 7 at home once again, if they fail to win in Los Angeles. If Mike Conley Jr. can play, which is a big if, then the Jazz would get a big boost for this duel.

Donovan Mitchel Over 32.5 Total Points

The young guard has been spectacular in these playoffs with an average of 32.9 points per game. But Mitchell has been even better in the series against the Clippers so far since he averages 37.3 points per game across the first four meetings. One of the reasons lies in the fact that the Jazz have been without Conley in those four games, but it also looks like Mitchell has gone into form after being out for some time due to an injury. In any case, one of our top Jazz vs Clippers predictions is for Mitchell to score 33 or more points in Game 5.

Kawhi Leonard Over 29.5 Total Points

It seems that the Clippers have finally found their stride in these playoffs after a shocking start to the series against the Mavs. Even though they lost the first to games against the Jazz as well, the team looked much better and one of their leaders in these playoffs is Kawhi Leonard. The forward averaged 30.4 points per game so far in the playoffs. While he is averaging a bit less in the series against the Jazz (27.3PPG), we expect him to score at least 30 points in the next game.

Jazz vs Clippers Game 5 preview – Can the guests get one win in the series?

So far, we’ve seen the home team win every one of the first four games of Jazz vs Clippers. Can we see something different in Game 5? Let’s check out the teams in more detail to try and get the answer to that question.

Utah Jazz

It’s obvious that the Jazz are playing much better at home, so it’s good for them that they are the highest seed in the league and that they’ll have the home-court advantage in Game 7, if it’s necessary. The team from Salt Lake won the first two games at home, but the Clippers were better in the next two games in Los Angeles. The Jazz have played the first four games without Mike Conley Jr. and the experienced playmaker is under question for Game 5 as well.

Los Angeles Clippers

After the first two games, the Clippers were down 2-0 and given the fact that they’ve lost three times at home in the first round against Dallas Mavericks, many people expected the Jazz to get at least one win in Los Angeles. However, the Clippers were pretty convincing in both of their home games against the Jazz, so they will now once again had to Utah for Game 5. As you probably now by know, Serge Ibaka is out for the season and he won’t be playing in any playoff games.
