G2, Utah leads 1-0 after winning here at home G1 with 112:109 final score.
If it s by the seen in G1, then Utah should win again. I mean they had poor first half, were losing in double digits at halftime back then. During first half Utah had one very very long period without scored points.
Mike Conley was out (tonight won't play either), Rudy Gobert who has been named the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year, had very modest game in offense. And with all mentioned, Utah still earned the victory.
So we can say Utah is the real deal and no wonder they were No. 1 team in regular season.
The team best player, Donovan Mitchell is outstanding.
But we should point out that Clippers were maybe a little bit without gas after seven games long series against Dallas where they were 0-2 and 2-3 before winning it 4-3. Especially offensively Clippers have failed late in G1.
The logic tells me Utah Jazz but I have feeling LA Clippers could get result in this G2. In any case I'm on Totals option.
I have opted for Over points. The reason is simple. Beside everything stated above about G1, it still ended with 221 (the line was 221.5). I feel much of what happened last time, was going against Over but the final score still has landed exactly on the offered number. This tells me that now we could see maybe even comfortable Over.
