Rudy Gobert still questionable to return versus LA

Rudy Gobert still questionable to return versus LA

If Rudy Gobert returns the Jazz could easily make this a pretty quick series. The Clippers went 2 of 10 from 3-point range in the second half. "But we have to play better", Rivers said, striking the balance between soothing and concerned.

Griffin had 26 points and seven rebounds and Paul finished with 25 points, seven rebounds and 11 assists. He missed the first shot and made the second, setting up a dramatic finish.

Gordon Hayward had a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds.

A post-game MRI revealed no ligament damage, but Utah's most reliable player-the backbone of its elite defense and a key piece of its grinding offense-is now a question mark for the balance of the series after being diagnosed with a hyperextended left knee and a bone bruise.

That mission got off to the worst possible start last night as the Clippers lost game one of their first-round playoff series to the Utah Jazz in dramatic fashion.

Playoff scheduling makes it more feasible that Gobert could return at some point in the series. If the Clippers lose in the first round its easy to envision them orchestrating a major shakeup in the offseason. "On that one, coach trusted us to get a good shot off, and we got a layup". "We fought to the end of the year to get (homecourt advantage), now we've given it right back". The shocking Game 1 loss to a Jazz team absent its most dominant defender and arguably most indispensable player adds to the Clippers' collection of playoff heartbreaks. An injured Derrick Favors was heaving and wobbling up and down the court against the Clippers, yet still managed to net 15 points. In fact, he used his momentum to get to half court; hoping that the Clippers get the ball back so he could have a uncontested dunk.

They have two days to dwell and then move forward as Game 2 of their Western Conference best-of-seven playoff series approaches on Tuesday night at Staples Center.

The Jazz took their biggest lead at 82-74 with 9:12 left in the fourth quarter when Jazz point guard George Hill banked in a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired.

Curry was sidelined for the first three games of that series previous year before coming off the bench in a playoff game for the first time in his career in Game 4 and scoring 40 points, with an National Basketball Association record 17 in overtime of a 132-125 victory. First, that Quin Snyder didn't call timeout meant that neither team had a chance to adjust the unit on the floor.
