Jazz vs Clippers prediction

The Jazz have been in tank mode for a month or so, and them being on the end of a back to back doesn't help them here. However, the Jazz did beat the Rockets last night as double-digit underdogs, so maybe there's some fight left. The Clippers are already locked into a playoff matchup with the Mavs, and they could be without Kawhi and Harden for this game. Kawhi is out and Harden is questionable with a foot injury. Lot of points here with the Clippers undermanned. Give me the Jazz and the free buckets.
