Utah Jazz DFS Notes

Donovan Mitchell (ankle) and Mike Conley (hamstring) are both listed as questionable for Game 6 vs. the Clippers on Friday. Mitchell didn’t look quite right in the tough Game 5 loss on Wednesday evening, but he has already mentioned making adjustments to his game due to the condition of his ankle, so it would be shocking to see him not give it a shot. Conley has yet to play this series, so he carries the “questionable” tag a little bit more literally, but this is a step in the right direction for the veteran point guard, who they could really use in their first elimination game of the season.

Los Angeles Clippers DFS Notes

Kawhi Leonard (right knee) has been ruled out for Friday's Game 6 matchup with the Jazz. Head coach Tyronn Lue did not provide any update on Kawhi during his media availability on Thursday, simply saying that he will not play on Friday. Shams Charania reported that the Clippers fear Leonard may have suffered an ACL injury, and that he's currently "out indefinitely," so it's not surprising to see him ruled out a full day in advance of tip-off. Terance Mann should be slated for another start tomorrow night, while Paul George will need to come through with another big performance.

Hawks vs. Celtics Playoffs Prediction

The Jazz are 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games in L.A. and are 5-1 against the number in their last six games versus the Clippers overall. The Jazz are also a perfect 6-0 against the spread in their last six games overall, are 4-0 against the number in their last four games as a road favorite and are 4-0 at the betting window in their last four road games.
