Who the Public Likes: As of Saturday morning, betting info has not been released for this game.

Injury Report: Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has missed the last three games with a sprained ankle and will be out again tonight. Patrick Beverley is out indefinitely as he recovers from knee surgery. CJ Williams is out indefinitely as he rehabs a sprained ankle. Austin Rivers is out until late January with an Achilles strain. Danilo Gallinari is out until early February with a strained glute. For the Jazz, Thabo Sefolosha is out for the season with an MCL tear. Dante Exum is out indefinitely after shoulder surgery in October.

Who the Trends Like: Los Angeles is 5-2 ATS in its last seven meetings in Utah. The over is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Utah. The over is 6-0 in the last six Los Angeles games.

Who We Like: The Clippers have been a great story lately, both with their six wins in a row and with their recent post-game fracas with Houston. If the season ended today, Los Angeles would be the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Even with Jordan still out and other injuries, the Clippers have churned along thanks to outstanding play from Griffin and Lou Williams along with others. Although the Jazz are always a tough matchup on their home floor, the spread is low enough that I have plenty of interest in betting on LA.
