The Clippers (39-18 SU, 31-26 ATS, 31-26 O/U) are coming off a horrible loss as they were plastered at home by the Spurs 116-90 on Thursday. They are going for the four-game sweep against the Jazz, but have only covered one of the games. Utah (31-24 SU, 27-27-1 ATS, 26-28-1 O/U) hasn't played since Tuesday, when they crushed Golden State, 115-101, giving 3.5. The Jazz have won three straight games, which also included a home win over Oklahoma City. The Jazz have won three straight games and seven of 10 games and stands seventh in the Western Conference standings. The key is swingman Gordon Hayward (shoulder), who returned to action with 17 points off the bench in the victory over Golden State. The Jazz are playing extremely well and with a few days rest, should cover this game with no problem. The Jazz travel to the Staples Center to take on the Clippers at 10:30pmET on Saturday night.
