Can the Jazz beat the Clippers?

Previewing the 2nd round matchup between the Jazz and Clippers

The Utah Jazz will take on the Los Angeles Clippers in round 2 of the NBA playoffs and it looks to be a good matchup for basketball fans. You know the ones that are worried about the product being good, not just the ratings. On this episode of the SLC Punks podcast I was joined by Calvin Chappell and Jason Walker and we discussed the ins and outs of the series including:

  • Kawhi Leonard is probably the consensus best player in the series but the next three players there’s definitely room for debate. How do Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert stack up compared to Paul George.
  • How well has Royce O’Neale guarded Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the past? Will he be able to make a difference guarding them?
  • Who are the x-factors in this series? Who needs to have a big series for the Jazz to get a win?
  • How healthy is Mike Conley? Will he make it through this series?
