Jazz-Clippers Preview

By JORDAN GARRETSON Posted Dec 28 2013 2:00AM

After suffering two road losses in painfully close fashion, the Los Angeles Clippers will likely welcome a lesser opponent in its return home.

Meanwhile, the lowly Utah Jazz hope to find some momentum from a last-second victory.

Los Angeles aims for its seventh straight victory in the series on Saturday night.

The Clippers (20-11) are coming off a 116-112 overtime loss at Portland on Thursday despite committing a season-low six turnovers to the Trail Blazers' 17.

One of their biggest disadvantages came on the glass where they were outrebounded 60-48.

"They didn't actually get them (rebounds) when we went small, which is amazing," coach Doc Rivers said. "We were helping a lot. When you have to help, it does create somebody with a body off of them and I thought they took advantage of that."

However, it was also the fifth straight game in which Los Angeles was outrebounded after losing out 49-38 in Wednesday's 105-103 loss at Golden State. Rivers' team is being outrebounded by an average of minus-8.4 over the last five contests, far worse than its minus-1.5 margin on the season.

Other than DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin, Chris Paul's 3.8 rebounds per game are the most on the team during the last five games.

Friday's loss also came despite big performances from Griffin, who had 35 points and 11 rebounds, and Paul, who added 34 points and 16 assists. Griffin was playing a night after a controversial ejection for two technical fouls against the Warriors, which the NBA described Thursday as a mistake by the officials.

"It'd be different if we lost both games by 15 or 20 points, but to lose two emotional games like that is tough," Jamal Crawford told the team's website. "I think, honestly, those ones are tougher to digest than losing by 20. Sometimes you lay an egg and you come out and you just don't have it that night, but to have the opportunity to win both of them is tough."

The Clippers have been much better at home however, going 12-2 and averaging 111.9 points compared to 99.7 per game on the road.

The Jazz (9-23) come in feeling good about themselves after a dramatic 105-103 home win over the Lakers on Friday. Derrick Favors had a putback dunk with 2.1 seconds left on Gordon Hayward's missed shot, converting what he said was the first game-winning shot of his career at any level.

"The two big guys for the Lakers went over and altered his shot a little bit," said Favors, who had 18 points and 14 rebounds. "It went off the rim and I was just there for the offensive rebound."

Utah has struggled against the Clippers, losing six straight after winning 11 of the previous 12. Los Angeles is averaging 107.8 points on 49.9 percent shooting during its six-game winning streak, and Paul is averaging 22.2 points during that stretch.

Awful first quarter by the Clips. I hope they pick up steam and get out of this trap and start making some more baskets. What happened to our 3-ball? Yikes.

Definitely not this years Willie! Willie this year has just looked bad! He came in this game and went 0/2 in the first 20 seconds he was in! These curl jumpshots he is taking should not be taken! Wing and Corner 3's are the only shots Willie should take right now! All this dribbling and other stuff he is doing trying to be Jamal should stop

It's really strange how Clippers play down to their opponent's level especially when they are the bottom of the barrel. Lol. I'm still hoping Clips will get something going and actually be in the lead and stay there.

I swear, Dudley is like a child that constantly does bad things until his parents finally scold him. Then he'll give you 2-3 days of being good, but reverts back to doing bad things again.
