It's Thanksgiving Eve, I'm mailing this in. (Like I've mailed the most of this season so far) The Utah Jazz (6-7) play the Los Angeles Clippers (7-7) in a game that should be much closer than what casual fans think. It should also be much closer than recent history would suggest . . . the Clippers are riding high on a 13 game win streak against the Jazz. Though, it should be noted that while the Clips have won 13 straight that it's not like each game was a blowout. Only four of the 13 games had a final margin of 10+ points, and five of them were with a final margin of five or fewer points. (For the sake of completion, the other games had margins of 6, 8, 9, and 9 points.) The Jazz have been in most of these games, but the scoreboard has been in the Clippers favor.

We'll see if tonight can be the night that breaks the streak.

No one is injured for the Clippers, though I expect them all to fall on the ground in anguish like they were stabbed by a sword at many points of the game. Only starting point guard Dante Exum is out for the Jazz. Centre Supreme Rudy Gobert has a bone bruise in his butt, but will still suit up.

Let's go Jazz!
