NBA Clippers at Utah
Oh Utah, where your NBA team has the worst and most confusing name in the NBA considering it’s illegal for there not to be daylight between two people when they dance. They also consider it illegal to NOT drink milk. Originally from New Orleans where they get the name, I’ve always felt bad for the Jazz. Their entire existence in the NBA and the only reason they were ever relevant is because they kept getting beat by the Bulls in the 90’s. There was so many teams they did this too but this one at least for me was the all timer, well besides the Knicks. The Bulls kept dismantling them in 6 games.
Think about that too. Has there been another team in the history of sports as good as the Jazz in the 90’s that didn’t win a championship. Besides there being the obvious Malone and Stockton hookup, there was Jeff Hornesack , Antoine Carr, and the ever fun to watch Greg Ostertag. He might be my favorite white guy center only being equal to Byant Reeves.
Crazy to think this guy played in the NBA. I’m pretty sure he was a monstar that wasn’t good at basketball.
Now on to the game
Utah posting the leagues best points against defense sitting at 96 pts per game and being 4th in the western conference is sitting right where they should be. George Hill and Butler star Gordan Hayward are making this team respectable. I would have never in a million years thought that this guy.
Would have turned into this guy, a max contract NBA player most likely next year.
Hayward has scored at least 30 in 4 of his last 5 games. As usual the Clippers are battling injuries. If this team was running at 100% they could actually make some noise. I can’t think of another NBA team like this. Where they can’t get all healthy at the same time. This game could actually be a preview for a first round playoff game so both teams could get a little pumped up for this. This game has some potential to be another snoozer like their last game ending 88-75. I think if you are going to throw some money on this go for the under. I’m going to take the hot streak of Hayward and ride this one to victory. Taking the points Utah -8
