Utah Jazz - Current: +6, Last: +6, Start: +2.5
The Utah Jazz led the league in Net Rating this season, largely because they lead the league in another statistic - most "wide open" three-point attempts. Against average NBA opponents, no team matched the Jazz in terms of what opportunities they were able to make for their guards Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell to drive and kick, drive and kick again, until the team got a great shot. Against the Los Angeles Clippers though, the Jazz are facing a huge offensive hurdle. First of all, the Clippers have a bevy of a strong perimeter defenders – all of whom can switch with one another easily - and secondly, both Conley and Mitchell are dealing with nagging injuries. If one or both of them are significantly hindered, I would project this Jazz offense to grind to a halt against Kawhi and company, despite their Game 1 victory at home.
