Utah @ Los Angeles

Regular Season Records: Utah 2-3; Los Angeles 3-2

What to Know

The Los Angeles Clippers and the Utah Jazz will battle for a spot in the playoff semifinals at 10 p.m. ET June 18 at Staples Center. The Clippers are out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.

Utah is out to make up for these teams' contest on Wednesday. Los Angeles walked away with a 119-111 victory. Among those leading the charge for them was shooting guard Paul George, who dropped a double-double on 37 points and 16 boards along with five dimes. The game made it PG13's third in a row with at least 31 points.

Los Angeles is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Orlando Magic March 30 easily too and instead slipped up with a 103-96. In other words, don't count Utah out just yet.
