The Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers meet Friday in NBA action at the Staples Center.
The Utah Jazz look for another win to build on their ridiculous 24-5 record. The Utah Jazz are averaging 115.6 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 106 points on 44 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 24.2 points and 5.1 assists while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 18.2 points and 2.1 assists. Mike Conley is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 13.2 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 39.3 percent from beyond the arc and 77.6 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.7 rebounds per game.
The Los Angeles Clippers look for a win after winning eight of their last 12 games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 115.4 points on 48.5 percent shooting and allowing 108.6 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 26.7 points and 5.9 rebounds while Paul George is averaging 24.4 points and 6.2 rebounds. Marcus Morris Sr. is the third double-digit scorer and Lou Williams is grabbing 2.3 rebounds.

The Jazz are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 21-5 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games. The under is 6-2 in Jazz last 8 road games. The over is 8-2 in Clippers last 10 overall. The Jazz are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Los Angeles Clippers could have Kawhi for this contest, but I'm not sure it matters much. As I've said many times already, the Jazz are automatic backs until things cool off, as they're on a historic run both straight up and against the spread. The Jazz have covered 21 of their last 26 games and are 24-5 straight up. I'm not stepping in front of that. Give me the Jazz yet again.
