The LA Clippers take the 3-2 series lead after defeating the Utah Jazz 119-111 on the road. It was a convincing win for Tyronn Lue despite not having two-time Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard at his disposal. Leonard is currently nursing a knee injury and will remain sidelined indefinitely. Although Quin Snyder’s team was heavily favored coming into Game 5, the Jazz were smitten by a Paul George, who brought in his A-game. With the series heading back to Los Angeles on Friday night, the Jazz need to do everything in their power for a shot at the Conference Finals.

Why Bet on the Utah Jazz?
It’s been tough for the Jazz to keep up with the explosive offense of the Clippers in the last three games. Mike Conley’s absence is being felt, and he might miss another game. The guard remains questionable with a mild hamstring. Without Conley, Rudy Gobert is finding it difficult to score consistently on pick-and-rolls. Jordan Clarson was also quiet in Game 5 with 15 points and 3 rebounds to his name. Although six players recorded double-digits in the last bout, their efforts weren’t enough to match the Clippers’ pace.
Donovan Mitchell’s been running a one-man show for the Jazz. He leads the series in points and assists with 34 and 4.6, per game respectively. However, his last game was a little too mellow, scoring 21 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. If he wants to pull his team out of this 1-game deficit and force a seventh game, there’s plenty of work to be done. Nevertheless, we know that he is capable of producing the right numbers for his team after the Jazz following a first-place finish in the Western Conference standings.
Why Bet on the Los Angeles Clippers?
The LA Clippers came roaring back and grabbed hold of a series lead in a string of incredible performances thanks to Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. But this time around, it was George who carried the team to the win after putting down 37 points, 16 rebounds, and 5 assists.
After being heavily criticized for not being able to step up when called upon, George responded with his best game of the 2021 NBA playoffs. “Playoff P” appears to have been finally laid to rest, with George putting up a fantastic job of silencing his haters. Meanwhile, his teammates are also stepping up. Reggie Jackson scored 22 points, Marcus Morris Sr. had 25 points, while Terance Mann contributed 13 points.
If they can continue playing at this level, there’s a good chance that they make it past the Jazz without Kawhi Leonard. But, Game 6 will put PG13 to the test again as his team is expected to rely heavily on his scoring. Nonetheless, he’s off to a good start, averaging 29.2 points per game on top of 9.6 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game to lead the Clippers’ series stats.

Jazz vs. Clippers Expert Betting Prediction
It looks like the Clippers have the momentum they need, but the Jazz isn’t that far behind in the last few games. Only one slow quarter held back Quin Snyder and the crew from taking the win, so expect another tight Jazz vs. Clippers head-to-head. Of course, winning is not off the table for the Jazz here as they’ve demonstrated early into the series.
At the same time, the Clippers start to show a more competitive and determined side with Paul George leading the charge. But with homecourt advantage, they might just have the slight upper hand in Game 6.
