Utah Jazz Betting
After ending a five-game losing streak against the Miami Heat, the Utah Jazz bounced back on a win against the Portland Trail Blazers. Rudy Gobert outclassed Hassan Whiteside as his numbers came out with 16 points and 15 rebounds. Donovan Mitchell was efficient on the floor with 35 points on 10-of-15 shooting. The Portland game was also a debut for Jordan Clarkson, who they acquired from a trade with Cleveland. He had nine points and it is scary how JC moved well on the Jazz offense in just his first game. Against the Clippers, they will need to approach the game carefully and make great decisions against their Doberman style of defense. Every point is earned while battling Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting
It was a total team effort for the Clippers when they brought down the Lakers for the second time this season. Pat Beverly was not credited much but a lot of what he did are hustle points which cannot be reflected in the stat sheet. Lou Williams and Paul George had a bad shooting night but it was Kawhi Leonard and Montrezl Harrell that picked up the team. Going up against the Jazz, it has been a tale of two Clipper teams lately. They are trying to find some consistency and if they show up with the type of game that they showcased on Christmas Day, then the game should swing to the side of the Clippers easily.
