INJURY TO WATCH
Los Angeles small forward Danilo Gallinari (hand) is out tonight. Point guard Jawun Evans (hernia), point guard Milos Teodosic (heel) and point guard Patrick Beverley (knee) are out for the season. Shooting guard Avery Bradley (hernia) is out until early May. For the Jazz, small forward Joe Ingles (knee) is probable. Small forward Thabo Sefolosha (knee) is out for the season. Point guard Raul Neto (wrist) is out until mid-April.
The Clippers are fighting for their playoff lives as they are two games back of the eighth seed with four to play, while not only would they have to catch the Pelicans but also the Nuggets ahead of them. Additionally, the matchup tonight at Utah is brutal. Good luck. I think it all ends here tonight for Los Angeles in a blowout loss. The Jazz are fully capable of beating the hell out of anyone and a team resigned to their fate seems like prime pickings.
