Griffin Injury Could Have Major Impact in Clippers, Jazz Series

Blake Griffin will be out the remainder of the series due to a toe injury her suffered in Game 3 of the series between the Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz. Griffin, who appeared to injure his toe after converting a layup in the second quarter of Game 3, has been critical to the Clippers success against the Jazz this season.

Shark Bites
  • The Clippers are 20-3 SU in their last 23 games against the Jazz.
  • The visiting team is 3-0 ATS in the last 3 games between the Clippers and Jazz.
  • The Jazz are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in the playoffs at home.

The Clippers have a plus-45 point scoring margin and a plus-27 rebounding edge against Utah this year (regular season and postseason included) with Griffin on the floor compared to plus-two points and minus-five in rebounding with him on the bench. Marreese Speights got some extra minutes in Game 3 and could be in line for a bump, but coach Doc Rivers could also opt to go with Luc Mbah a Moute at the four and give Paul Peirce more minutes.

The Jazz have been dealing with their own injury issues, as Frenchman Rudy Gobert has been sidelined most of the series with a knee injury. Utah’s other star player went off in Game 3, as Gordon Hayward scored 40 points while shooting 61.9 percent from the floor and 50 percent from deep.
