Clippers G Rivers expected back for Game 5

During the 2016-17 regular season, Griffin averaged 21.6 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists in 61 games.

Minutes later, Exum drove hard at Jamal Crawford, drawing the fifth foul on the Clippers' veteran guard.

Once again, the Jazz were saved by a most unlikely hero down the stretch - 35-year-old Joe Johnson. First came the team's star center Rudy Gobert in Game One.

"I don't look at it as a wasted effort or anything like that". Johnson swung a quick pass to a wide-open Hood, who buried the three-pointer.

The Local Los Angeles and Utah people can watch the Live Clippers vs Jazz game on TV if already have a cable or satellite provider.

That will certainly be a taller order without Griffin than had he avoided suffering a season-ending injury in the playoffs for the second straight season.


The Jazz announced Gobert would be returning to the lineup after missing just two starts with the injury. So we've got to get guys ready for the next game.

The team what won the battle in the paint has won all four games of the series so far. He converted a blistering 44.1 percent of his three-point attempts for the season and, in today's National Basketball Association, that is a quick way to gain recognition. However, he struggled with his shooting overall, going just 6-16 from the field. "He had a big game".

Aside from Johnson, the biggest contributor of the night for Utah was Ingles.

The Jazz outscored the Clippers by 11 points in the 39 minutes they played without Hayward.

Dealing with Gobert's absence hasn't been easy.

It was the second time in the series that Utah prevailed while playing short-handed. The former No. 1 pick will remain in Salt Lake City, wearing a walking boot and will return with the team after Game 4 on Sunday.


What's Next? The Clippers play the Jazz Tuesday, April 25th, in the STAPLES Center.

Utah evened the best-of-seven series at two games apiece. "Then, it was just up to us to hit shots when it came to us". Because Paul was injured earlier in Game 4 a year ago, they never got the chance. But long-term, Friday's injury to Griffin might have signaled the end of an era in Los Angeles, or, it might give Rivers another reason to believe he can bring this entire team back and hope for an entire season of health.

At least in this series, however, the Clippers may be able to survive without one of their "Big Three".

This is a series now, and it may be tilting in Utah's favor, thanks to Johnson's heroics.

An interesting subplot, is that Johnson was doing all of that - simply taking over the game and cooking the Clippers - while wearing Chris Paul's signature shoe, the CP3.X.

The last game Griffin played against the Jazz was game 3 and without the starting forward on the second half, Paul was the one who dominated the court, where he scored a total of 34 points. "Now we've got go back and take home court".
