The Clippers will host the Jazz for a big match tonight. I see the Utah Jazz able to play a very good match but I prefere to stay safe and to bet on under in this one. The Clippers are full of confidence and they are a very dangerous team.
Los Angeles Clippers started well this season as they won both matches played against Los Angeles Lakers on the road 108-92 and against Phoenix Suns 130-88. It's true that they have played very good but they have faced two of the worst teams in NBA right now. The Clippers have scored a lot of points but, as I said before, their opponents were very weak and today story will change. If they will win this match, they will not score a lot of points as the Jazz defend very well.
Utah Jazz, on the other hand, are 2-1 right now but they have played against much more better opponents. They won first home game 106-96 against Denver Nuggets and last game 96-87 against Oklahoma City Thunders. Their only loss came away from home against Minnesota Timberwolves 100-97. They were impressive especially against the Thunders.
After the first two easy wins, Los Angeles Clippers will suffer a lot against a very strong defense. Utah Jazz conceded less than 97 points in every single match played right now. Also, the Clippers conceded less than 92 points in both of their first two matches so they will play good defense in this one too. I'm expecting less than 200 points scored. In the previous meetings between these two sides, most of the matches were low-tempo games with very few amount of points scored. Last season was the same and I'm expecting something similiar today. Both teams are defending very good.
Prediction: Utah Jazz 97-92 Los Angeles Clippers
