    Storylines

    Clippers: After trading away Tobias Harris at the deadline, it may have seemed like the Clippers were packing it in for the season, but they're still fighting hard for a playoff spot. In fact, heading into Wednesday's contests, they not only have a spot but are alone in seventh place. And a win over the Jazz would lift them into sixth. Harris may be gone, but their roster is full of solid role players who give great effort. That may limit their ceiling, but it gives them a very high floor. Still, they'll have a tough test to beat the Jazz on Wednesday. 

    Jazz: The Jazz have turned things around after their disappointing start to the season. Since Jan. 1, they're 15-7, with only two losses at home. It's no surprise that their turnaround has coincided with Donovan Mitchell's improved play. In February, Mitchell is putting up 24.7 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists a night. There's plenty of work for them to do in order to clinch a playoff spot though, as the Western Conference is quite crowded.

    Game prediction, pick

    The Jazz have been dynamite at home lately, thanks in large part to their suffocating defense. Plus, while the Clippers have competed well since trading Harris, they've mostly only beat bad teams. Take the Jazz to win and cover.
