Clippers vs Jazz Prediction and NBA Odds: Recent Form
The Los Angeles Clippers who were looking like one of the strong contenders in the Western conference have to tread a downward trajectory recently. Despite staying in the top 10 for the most part of the season, the side hasn’t really looked threatening which is a cause of concern.
Looking at this month’s campaign so far, the side has managed to achieve victories against the Heat, Bulls and Cavaliers while they suffered defeats against Jazz, Knicks, Warriors, Raptors, and Nuggets that prevented their upward trajectory in the table. They are currently sitting in the 8th spot with 36 triumphs and 39 losses.
On the other hand, Utah Jazz has to fire on all cylinders in order to excel in the postseason games as they are failing to take advantage of the winning momentum. But they have managed to hold on to the 5th spot in Western Conference.
Despite hiccups here and there, their March campaign has kept them afloat with 7 important victories. This also meant that they were in the fray to go deep in this year’s tournament with only a few games to go for the playoffs. But the only thing that has hindered their progress has been the three losses against the likes of Mavericks, Hornets, and Celtics.
