The Utah Jazz come into tonight’s game with sole possession of the first-place spot in the Western Conference after their win over Portland on Sunday. The Clippers have started to figure things out recently with some get-right games against some below .500 teams as Kawhi Leonard works on getting reacclimated to playing NBA minutes.

The Jazz lost a critical steadying veteran presence in Mike Conley during the Portland game. Luckily, it looks like Conley avoided severe injury, but the team will still be without him for at least two weeks.

The Clippers will also be coming into tonight’s game without key veteran Paul George, who is sitting out due to Right Knee Soreness.

The last time these two teams met the Jazz shot lights out from three-point range and came away with a 110-102 victory. Look for the Jazz to push the pace tonight, especially without Mike Conley to help facilitate in the half-court offense, and outrun the Clippers. The Clippers are 1.5-point favorites in tonight’s game per DraftKings, fans can reasonably look forward to a fun back-and-forth game tonight.
