LA Clippers vs Utah Jazz by FairPlayBet
The most tied match-up in opening round on west coast is this one between LA Clippers and Utah Jazz. No wonder if we know these are 4th and 5th seed from regular season. Very similar record these two team have had back then, or to be more correct they finished with completely the same 51-31 overall and completely the same home & road record (29-12 & 22-19).
Clippers hold the better mutual record, 3-1 after wining both at home and both with 13 pts difference while in Solk Lake City was 1-1.
Still this does not need to mean much. Playoffs is completely different team and I feel now could be important fact that Clippers during the entire season faced plenty of injury problems, rarely had all players available and never were able to play in one good rhythm for a long period of time. At this point both of their best players, Paul and Griffin are available, but I still rate Jazz chances pretty good in this opening game. From all first round games on this first day, here the chances of underdog are by far best.
