NBA: Playoffs-Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Clippers

The Clippers weren’t about to slip quietly into the long NBA offseason – and their one-sided win over Utah in Game 3 sent a clear message that this best-of-seven is far from over.

Jazz vs. Clippers Game 4 NBA Playoff Odds

Los Angeles is a five-point fave for the second straight game – and based on their 23-18 ATS mark at Staples Center this season, they should be a popular cover play. They’ve certainly won over the Sports Interaction crowd, who are leaning toward the home team at a 60-percent clip after just 25 percent of bettors sided with the Clippers heading into Game 3. Despite the one-sided result over the weekend, Utah is still 5-1-1 ATS over its past seven games.

The total has risen just a half-point over the Game 3 number despite that result finishing well over – and you know that means a heavily-slanted Over trend among bettors. A whopping 89 percent of Sports Interaction participants are riding a trend that has seen the Jazz convert the Over in seven of their eight postseason games so far. Bettors should, however, be wary that the Clippers remain a stronger Under option for the season at 38-41-3 O/U.

Utah Jazz

The Jazz might have thrived without Mike Conley in Game 2, but they missed him dearly in that Game 3 drubbing. Utah managed to record just 15 assists on 36 made field goals in defeat while committing 16 turnovers, leading to 24 Clippers points. Donovan Mitchell remained a force with 30 points but didn’t get much help; Joe Ingles (19) was the only other player to finish with more that 15 points, while Bojan Bogdanovic was held to nine points on 2-of-10 shooting.

Los Angeles Clippers

After being outplayed by Mitchell in back-to-back games, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George found themselves on the defensive, challenged by Tyronn Lue to step up their games in Game 3. And as expected, they did just that: Leonard led all scorers with 34 points while adding 12 rebounds and five assists while George poured in 31 points thanks to six 3-pointers. That said, Leonard’s long-range shooting remains a concern after he went just 1-for-6 from deep.
