NBA Playoffs

Start- Gordon Hayward

 

The Clippers host the Utah Jazz in a game that decides who takes a 3-2 series lead. Without Blake Griffin this postseason, Chris Paul has been absolutely locked in. Even against a stingy Jazz defense, we believe that CP3 will continue to get things done, especially on his home court tonight. The biggest challenge for the Clippers will be to find another scoring threat besides Paul. Jamal Crawford picked up some scoring in Game 4, but we do not expect him to score 25 points again, especially since he only combined for 27 in the previous 3 games.

On the other side of things, look for George Hill and Joe Ingles to play a nice chunk of minutes, and to be relied heavier upon if Gordan Hayward is not able to go tonight. Joe Ingles had 11 assists in game 4 and played exceptionally. Look for him to continue that rhythm tonight in a matchup that is going to be very low scoring and very slow paced. This game is not the game to stack, but is a good game that will stay close.
