Utah Jazz vs Los Angeles Clippers
In the West Conference first round, Utah Jazz won 4-1 in series against Memphis Grizzlies. On the other side, LA Clippers had many problems beating Dallas Mavericks, but eventually, they prevailed with 4-3.
In the first game of the West Conference semifinals, the Utah Jazz won 112-109 against Los Angeles Clippers. Guests played well in the first half, so they had a 60-47 lead at halftime. In the second half, the home side was brilliant in defence, as they limited opponents to only 16 made field goals. The Jazz completely overturned the game, so they had ten points advantage in the middle of the last quarter. Donovan Mitchell scored 45 points for the winning side, while Bojan Bogdanovic and Jordan Clarkson chipped 18 points apiece. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George were the best for the Clippers. They scored 23 and 20 points, respectively.
The home team played well in the last game, so I expect them to win in the second game of the series.
Utah Jazz is impressive at home this season. They have 31 wins and only five losses at Salt Lake City in the 2020-21 season. Also, the Jazz won eight of the last ten home matches.
Utah Jazz’s only concern before the second game against Los Angeles Clippers is Mike Conley’s injury. He is questionable for the next game.

Los Angeles Clippers had a lot of problems defending Luka Doncic in the first round. In the first game of the West Conference semifinal, they had many problems with another dominant guard, Donovan Mitchell. They have to stop him if they want to have a chance to beat the Jazz.
The Clippers could be without Serge Ibaka in the next game. He has a lot of problems with a back injury in recent months.
