Utah Jazz @ LA Clippers Tips


Two of the three best teams in the NBA this season face each other when the Utah Jazz travel to Los Angeles on Thursday to take on the Clippers at the Staples Center. 

The Jazz have topped the Northwest Division, the Western Conference and the NBA League all season, and have an outstanding record of 23 wins against 5 defeats. 

The Clippers have dueled with city rivals the Lakers for Pacific Division bragging rights, and second spot in the Western Conference all season. The Clippers have a 21-8 record, the third best in the NBA League.

This will be a high octane matchup featuring great players and great basketball. I’m picking the Utah Jazz to continue their impressive run with a ten-points-or-less win over the LA Clippers in a high scoring game. 

  • Jazz no.1 team in NBA this season
  • Jazz 23-5 in NBA regular season 
  • Clippers second in Pacific Division
  • Clippers 3rd in Western Conference 

Head to Head 


These two teams have played each other 188 times, with the Utah Jazz leading their head to head with the LA Clippers by 108 wins to 80. 

In their seven most recent meetings since the start of 2019, the Jazz lead the Clippers by 5-2. In their last match in January this year, Utah won with a score of 106-100. 

Utah Jazz Form


The Utah Jazz could post one of the great NBA regular season records if they continue in their current fashion. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020-21 NBA regular season has been reduced to 72 games from 82. The Golden State Warriors went 73-9 during the 2015-16 season, the best regular season record in NBA history. 

Thus far, Utah have lost just 5 of their 28 matches, and they are only getting better; the Jazz have suffered only one defeat in their last 20 games, winning the vast majority by more than ten points. 

Outstanding for Utah this season have been Jordan Clarkson, Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and Mike Conley. 

LA Clippers Form


If the Clippers could defeat the Jazz on Thursday and then repeat that feat in their rematch on Saturday, it would surely galvanize a team that were setting the pace in the Pacific Division until a few weeks ago.

Back in January, the Clippers were vying with the Jazz for top spot on the NBA League, and at one point won seven matches in a row that month.

The Clippers then lost their way somewhat, losing three out of four at the start of February, but they are currently on a four-match winning streak. 

The Clippers are also scoring plenty of points again, and in their last three games defeated the Chicago Bulls 125-106, the Cleveland Cavaliers 128-111, and the Miami Heat 125-118.

Verdict

With both teams playing well right now, this will be a high scoring game, with the Jazz edging the Clippers by ten points or less. 

Utah are 10-3 on the road, while LA are 10-4 at home, a decent but hardly impregnable record. 

The Jazz will hand them their fifth defeat at the Staples Center, and continue their remarkable regular season run.
