The Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Staples Center.

The Utah Jazz look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Utah Jazz are averaging 107.8 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 105 points on 45.5 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 21.5 points and 3.6 assists while Rudy Gobert is averaging 14.8 points and 12.8 rebounds. Ricky Rubio is the third double-digit scorer and Joe Ingles is grabbing 4.1 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 34.6 percent from beyond the arc and 72.5 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 35.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.1 rebounds per game. The Utah Jazz have lost six of their last nine road games.

The Los Angeles Clippers could use a win here after losing five of their last eight games. The Los Angeles Clippers are averaging 115.3 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 114.3 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Tobias Harris is averaging 20.8 points and eight rebounds while Danilo Gallinari is averaging 19.7 points and 2.6 assists. Lou Williams is the third double-digit scorer and Montrezl Harrell is grabbing 6.8 rebounds. The Los Angeles Clippers are shooting 38.8 percent from beyond the arc and 80.1 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Clippers are allowing 35 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.6 rebounds per game. The Los Angeles Clippers have split their last eight home games.

The Jazz are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Pacific, 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference. The Clippers are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 vs. NBA Northwest, 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS loss and 13-6-1 ATS in their last 20 Wednesday games. The Jazz are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in LA and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 6-1 in Clippers last 7 overall. The under is 4-1 in Jazz last 5 overall.

The Utah Jazz have won the last three meetings against the Los Angeles Clippers and four of the last five. The Jazz are also playing their best ball of the season with wins in six of their last seven games. However, the Los Angeles Clippers have been the more consistent team all season long and have an offense that will bury the Jazz, who are shooting under 43 percent from the field in their last five games. The Clippers are also an incredible 16-6 ATS this season when a favorite of seven or less points. I'll lay the bucket with the Clippers at home.

Pick:
L.A. Clippers -2
