Los Angeles Clippers
“Los Angeles Clippers” issued their fourth victory in the sixth game, defeating the “San Antonio Spurs” with a score of 103: 97, at home. Kawaii Leonard did not take part in the previous game against Utah Jazz in order to gain strength for the match against Spurs, in which he scored 38 points. Thus, in the match against Utah, the team had the worst offensive performance of the season, against them they scored 96 points in that match, and he was lost. It's time for a rematch.
Utah Jazz lost 102: 101 against the Sacramento Kings in their last game and suffered their second defeat this season. Although they took the lead in the last quarter against the “Kings”, they could not warn themselves against an accurate throw of Harrison Barnes 2 seconds before the end of the match. When Donovan Mitchell could not prove himself in the last attack of the team, they lost the match.
Personal meeting statistics
In recent matches, the home team has a better attack, gaining significantly more points per match, with a better percentage of scoring from the game. The Utah team is significantly stronger in defense. They miss very few points from their opponents, but their opponents do not suffer the realization of shots from the game. Against an attack like the Clippers, their defense tends to fall apart. For other indicators, “Clippers” are not inferior to their current rival.
“Los Angeles Clippers” were forced to attack in the last two games. Especially in their last game, they could not show the desired implementation of the shots against the Spurs. They managed to win the game against San Antonio, although they scored only 5/26 shots due to a three-point line. On the front of “Utah” Mike Conley finally woke up, I wrote about this in my forecast for their game against “Kings”, but I wrote this here because in the last two games he made a significant contribution to the score against not only against Clippers "but also against the Sacramento Kings. It can be expected that during the season, Rudy Hubert will further increase his offensive effectiveness.
Utah Jazz is the best defense team in the league. The first match between the two teams this season, “Jazz” won at home with a score of 110: 96. However, Kawai Leonard did not play in this match. "L.A. Clippers" are going through a formless period. But I expect them to win this home game against Jazz, given the factor of Kawai Leonard’s absence in their first full-time game.
