The Utah Jazz travel to the Staples Center to take on the Los Angeles Clippers tonight.
The Clippers were able to arrest a three-game slide with a dominant 111-94 win at Denver last night. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan led the team with 18 points apiece, JJ Redick had 16 points while Chris Paul added 15 as the Clippers overcame a slow start to get the win. The Clippers scored a total of just 171 points in their last two games so it's good to see them back where they should be. With the win, Los Angeles improves to 7-7 on the season and 2-4 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Jazz will be looking to avoid a third straight loss after getting blown out by the Thunder in a 111-89 loss on Monday. Gordon Hayward stayed hot with a team-high 19 points, Derrick Favors added 11 points while Rudy Gobert had 10 but no other player finished in double figures. As a team, the Jazz allowed the Thunder to shoot a blistering 54.5 percent from the field thanks to Kevin Durant who scored 27 points on 10 of 13 shooting. With the loss, Utah falls below .500 with a 6-7 record on the season and 2-2 record at home.
In ATS trends, the Jazz are 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall, while the Clippers are 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight games playing on zero days rest and 2-7 ATS in their last nine games overall.
Head to head, the Jazz are 3-1-1 ATS in the last five meetings overall and the under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.
I know the Clippers are playing on zero days rest, but the Clippers have been slipping lately and really didn't look in Monday's loss. I'm taking the Clippers to win and cover the small spread.
