Let's get win #10!

.

Tonight the Jazz go up against the Clippers. Star power and playoff experience against youth and small market conservatism. (E.g. Fans will show up to watch Enes Kanter and Rudy Gobert on the bench. They don't look like they're from 'round these parts!) It's more than that, it's also Doc Rivers going up against Tyrone Corbin. It's a team that is 5-13 road record going up against a team with a 12-2 home record. BUT it's also a team on the second night of a back to back playing a team playing their third game in four nights.

It's a lot of things, and follow it all on twitter with #UTAatLAC or on the web here at SLC Dunk.

Probable Starters:

  • Point Guard: Trey Burke vs. Chris Paul
  • Shooting Guard: Gordon Hayward vs. Jamal Crawford
  • Small Forward: Richard Jefferson vs. Jared Dudley
  • Power Forward: Marvin Williams vs. Blake Griffin
  • Center: Derrick Favors vs. DeAndre Jordan

Advantage:

The Clippers are missing Redick, Bullock, and Wayns. We're not missing anyone. But we're on the road and they are great at home. Both teams are kind of tired, but LA is more tired but at home and didn't play last night. I give them the advantage in the intangibles part. They've lost their last 2 games and we've won 1. Still, we're the worst in the West.

I expect our team to play hard, but probably lose.

GO JAZZ GO!
