After a lengthy six game win streak the Utah Jazz has suddenly dropped two straight and three of their past four games. They are coming off a home loss last night to the Sacramento Kings by the score of 104-103 laying -7 ½ points as the favorite. Utah defensively over their past five games has allowed opponents to average over 104 points per game. Center Al Jefferson has stepped up for this Jazz team with 21 point per game average and 10 ½ rebounds pulled down over his past seven games.

After poor road play with three straight losses the Clippers have righted the ship with four straight wins on their home court. LA was able to deliver a win thanks to a Chris Paul late bucket in their 98-97 home victory last night against the Portland Trailblazers as a -9 ½ point betting favorite. The Clippers recent slide has come due in part to their defense. Despite piling up victories the Clips is still defending poorly allowing opponents 46.8% shooting over their past five games. The offense is carrying LA right now as the club is sinking nearly 48% of their shots in that span of games.

The trend is one sided recently in this matchup as Utah has simply owned the LA Clippers as the Jazz have covered the pointspread in four straight and 8 of their past 10 meetings on the court.
