GAME THREAD: Utah Jazz (52-20) @ Los Angeles Clippers (47-25) - (June 12, 2021)
By - NBA_MOD
Clippers aren't even shooting that well. Sub-40 lol
so many people in here seem to forget our all star point guard is out lmao. and we went up 2-0, meanwhile the suns get a cake walk to the WCF. A hobbled lakers team, and murray-less denver teamA
Edit - for anyone that says Ibaka is out, he is nowhere close to the impact on the clippers as Mike is for the Jazz.
how the fuck this has even 5 upvotes is weird lmao, everyone says "we" and "us" about a sports team that they are rooting for. i'm sure even you at some point has said that. fuck outa here.
edit - even going through your comment history is showing you saying "we" and "us" bro you're just one person right? shut the fuck up.
It's fucking Sunday. Who the fuck does anything on Sunday? lmao... I'm sure you say us and we at your workplace but you don't own that shit, you just work there. same thing. what a weird argument to make over saying "we" and "us" over a sports team that is liked by someone. fuck off and enjoy your day.
ps it took all of 30 seconds to see it in your comment history.
Fun fact, was born in Utah and have family there. I guess that makes everyone in the EU weird for rooting for teams they have no ties to. You argument is completely stupid and cringe. With that said, what's your brunch? Eggs benedict, or more of a burger for brunch type of person?
I'm gonna need your Social Security Number to confirm that you were born there. I'll accept your SSN through DMs. What's your mother's maiden name btw?
lol shut up
Of course the Clippers only blow out the Jazz when down 0-2 lmao
Ty Lue the adjustment god
lmao why is this still stickied
it would have been an even bigger win if LAC had just learned not to drive on Rudy unless you're PG or Kawhi and you have him 20ft from the basket.
Clips finally played like they should have in the last 2 games. They made the shots and did better D. Hoping it continues.
exactly. I don't really have a horse in this race (dislike both teams equally :)), but to me it was obvious that games 1 and 2 were close contested, clippers just missed some open shots & jazz made some not-so-open ones. It was bound to equalize sooner or later. Jazz need to make some adjustments for sure, they can let the first two games fool them, they really weren't a better team
If/when Conley comes back it’ll be a good series but I still gotta give the edge to the Clippers. Like you said they were missing wide open shots and the Jazz were getting the contested ones to fall. Their last game was what 117-111? I mean LA shot horribly in the last few minutes and only lost by 2 possessions. It’s 2-1 in LAs favor if they just make some of those shots. Stealing a game at Utah is hard to do but you gotta get atleast one. Game 4 is going to be close but I think LA can even it out and maybe steal game 5. No matter what I see this series’s going 7.
Ibaka coming back would be a strong pick and pop weapon against Gobert too.
Not to mention his shot blocking. It adds another defender with a veteran presence on the court. People forget how deep the Clippers really are. Full of just former/current all stars
The game is over
damnnnn someone call CSI
Pfizer P straight murdah Shingles Ingles
lmao imagine commenting this when Playoff P is a more common occurrence, meanwhile Ingles is a Role player not a star. And Ingles still had a good game. Ingles shows up more in playoff games than all-star guard Paul George.
ikr u should hit up Mary J Blige
Jazz are Mavs 2.0 michelle Carrys the team without him.they won't even make playoffs
Who’s Michelle? Are you talking about the WNBA? Haha
they meant to say Michele Carey, but autocorrect screwed it over
Okay I’m now actually laughing out loud.
…Maybe he meant Mariah Carey.
That really looked like an ACL injury...
I’m surprised a clip of jackson asking kawhi to pick isnt on the front page
Do u have a link to that?
gg Clippers fans. We gonna need Conley back to have a chance if PG and Kawhi keep playing like tonight.
Why don’t the jazz just win in LA, fraud one seed
Quin, on LA's efficient offense: "That's who they are. … There's gonna be nights it's tough to stop them. We had some breakdowns. Particularly in transition, there's gotta be urgency to get back."

Free don mitchell
you need to chill out
I down voted your spot because you asked not to be
Sixers in 6
It’s one game
JAZZ FANS DOWN VOTING MY POSTS LIGHT THAT PACK UP
bro how the do you manage to be more annoying than jazz fans please just shut the fuck up
Lmao ead its jokes yall so angry for no reason
Here’s a good one. Nets in 5
I’ll give you another one Luka > Tatum
Come on jazz, don't be like my mavs lol.
You’re a terrible person.
You’re a dick
Looked at his comment history . yiiikes
Where is Mike Conley
Rehabbing a bum hammy.
100mil for 12 points
A fraud…? Like he’s pretending to play for the NBA, but he’s really a scientist or something?
he's actually three midgets stacked together in a costume, and yes, one of them is a secret scientist. My bet is on the middle one, it's always the middle one
NO HE PRETENDED TO BE GOOD AT BASKETBALL AND FINESSED THE JAZZ OUT 100MIL
Hm, interesting theory. Tell me more?
He had 12 points in 30 mins which is just sad
You just said a player dosent get judged off a aspect of the game that they get payed millions of dollars to play clearly jazz media has you truly believing the man is a great center he is no where near the level of Jokic or Joel but he gets paid like it
You don’t pay Gobert for his offense. You pay him because he’s one of the best rim protectors the game has seen in a while. He’s a multi-DPOY winner and proven himself to be the cornerstone of their team. You can say “without Mitchell they’d never win” same goes for Gobert, without him your defense takes a massive hit.
Lol 100+ mil for a glorified rim protector with NO offensive game
You’re crazy if you think there is a single team in the league that wouldn’t love to have him. Defense wins championships. You don’t need him to drop 30+. That’s why you have Clarkson, Mitchell, Ingles, etc. You don’t ask Draymond to go get you 20 points, you have him because he plays good defense and facilitates the ball on offense. Gobert literally has the highest +/- in the league and the highest def rating.....
There’s tons of teams that would love to have him sure
There’s tons of teams that would love to have kemba but the problem is they both make too much money
You might be the only person to ever compare Kemba to Gobert. As someone who lives in NC and used to watch Kemba play for Charlotte, he’s not the same player he used to be. Kemba isn’t a very good player much anymore, Gobert quite literally just won another DPOY. One gets paid because he gets results, the other gets paid because of what he used to be and they’re hoping he will return. Even Kemba in his prime isn’t as good as Gobert.
Why you spamming this shit?
PUFF PUFF PASS
Clippers in 6.
Clippers will probably win the series. You can't reasonably expect Mitchell to return his ankle to full strength anytime soon. Unless Bojan, O'Neale, and Clarkson show out nightly here on out, Utah won't be able to hold on.
Presumptive congrats on finally getting to the WCF, clips.
thank you king
Is this a jinx? Lol
I will neither confirm nor deny this 😊
I don’t care about the playoffs or who wins the Championship - I only want The Clippers to lose.
So I’m sadge.
LETS GO CLIPS!
Sorry Jazz…IF Kawhi and PG show up in points you guys literally can’t win. If we lose, it’s because those two aren’t scoring.
Not sure how that works out but good luck with it.
I mean without Conley yeah most likely
We’re still missing Conley, the certified Clipper killer, once he’s back it’s over. Jazz in 5.
clips are missing ibaka , so ya
Clips got this for sure
0-2 clippers undefeated in 2021
0-2 Kawhi undefeated all time
PG heard y'all talking shit.
He's still overrated
Absolutely. He’s the one guy who I feel universally most feel the same.
I'm a clippers fan and I have to say he isn't over rated every single game he has this stretch where he goes off just watch the game before commenting he's inconsistent that's it
Bruh you just hating
This game is such a disappointment. I tuned in to watch the Jazz put a beat down but damn, Clippers totally owned Jazz.
* Utah needs to play Mike Conley game 4 no excuses
* Snyder needs to make faster in game adjustments instead of letting a bench player like Niang kill all momentum with 3 turnovers and a fouls within 2 min time span
* Don't just settle for contested 3s. Move the ball around and find the open shooter. Today's shooting was completely different from game 1 and 2
* Golbert needs to be more aggressive and get those offensive rebounds... HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR KAWHI TO OUT REBOUND YOU?!
board man gets paid
Some dude named Georges Niang is out there shitting on himself getting minutes in a playoff game and people think this league can support two more teams?
Board Man Gets Paid!
I'm rooting for Jazz only because I can't legally support Clippers as an LAL fan lol... but wow, Clippers looked scary tonight. Damn well nearly won by 30 points! Insane.
Hi. Lakers and Clippers fan here. It’s possible, and it’s fun!
Somebody had to represent LA. Would you really want to watch the jazz vs the sun's? And then let Brooklyn have the championship???
OMG thought y'all were just a myth!! 😅
Gluck this post season!
Thanks. My whole family is like that. We’re rare, I guess. It was pointless to hate the Clippers in the late 80s/early 90s. Mostly followed the Lakers but always rooted for the Clippers to get better. I truly don’t understand Los Angelenos who hate the Clippers.
Boardman gets paid wym
Boardman gets paid
This team is representing LA. Show some love!
lol I can't legally support Clippers as an LAL fan but I will say y'all dominated today. Definitely the better team. Championship Kawhi is scary.
Y'all can still support the city!
> HOW IS IT POSSIBLE FOR KAWHI TO OUT REBOUND YOU?!
Paid man gets boards
I missed the game, what happened to Mitchell?
Kawhi sat him down and spanked him... also, Kawhi actually really did out rebound Golbert. Yes, this just happened in a playoff game. Kawhi out rebounded Golbert.
And for some reason Favors/Niang decided to play for the Clippers today.
I don't know why but you misspelling Gobert twice cracks me up
Can’t handle his own explosiveness hope he’s alright tho this Ain’t how we want to win
He’s fine. Walked out and then came back with thumbs up
walked out with a limp and a icepack around his ankle . of course he is gona act fine
RIL 2Pac. Every time I hear Pac in these west coast/Cali arenas, I get chills. I'm an old millennial, 34, but youngins, and Gen Z, listen to his words. He was so ahead of his time. You will learn a thing or two if you already didn't.
We play that song after every W. I hope it keeps playing for the next few weeks 😁
I'll root for you guys for sure if you do a magical 4 out of 5. I have west coast pride here imbedded in me.
I wasn’t Even Alive for the lob city clippers 🥺
wait what? Wasn't lob city like 2010 - 2014 ish? 8 year old on reddit? Parents should probably block this site from you.
What are you, 8?
That wasn't even a decade ago, good lord.
bruh you trollin'
Goddamn. I am feeling so old lmao.
Lmfao y’all see someone grab that kids hand
clippers seriously never comfortable unless they start out a series in a whole
can't blow a 3:1 lead if you start 0:2
... lot of trouble.
lol dont know how i did that. cant blame autocorrect for that one
This jazz pack hitting ?
96 bulls, 2017 warriors, game 1 Magic, and 0-2 Clippers who you got?
Why aren’t the ‘86 Celtics on that list? I didn’t see the ‘96 Bulls, but I’m going to go with them.
Don’t forget 1-3 Nuggets
Lakers beat them in Gaame 5 tho
over 100 points worth of 3s this game 👀
Did that lady in the crowd have an All lives matter shirt on?
There isn't a person who says that who isn't dumb as fuck.
It's true , all live matter and equal, are BLM try to be the next KKK ?
Saying all lives matter in response to BLM is like saying, "Hey what about other cancers?" during breast cancer awareness month.
No, people who say "BLM are trying to be the next KKK" are trying to be the next KKK.
KKK burn and looting business of Black people's
BLM burn and looting business of Asian people's
The similarities are uncanny
Wow rilly makes u think 🤯🤔🤪
Context matters, if you can't figure it out then, you're one of the dumbasses.
“All lives can’t matter until Black Lives Matter”
nah this game took place in LA, not Utah
Nah it said “all lives can’t matter until…”
I believe it said all lives can’t matter until black lives matter (thankfully).
Saw that too lol
I saw that too lol
no pg slander tonight!!
31 is PG’s playoff high??
Yeah I saw that too. His career playoff high is 39 though.
Indiana PG had 40+ games i believe.
Has to be for this season
That I can believe
I think this year
That's still pretty surprising considering how many 30pt+ games we've seen in the playoffs so far. I expected him to at least have 1 already.
He had a good Mavericks series but not so much with scoring but with defense and hustle
Ok that makes sense
Yogi lookin hella nice
Damn I didn't realize Yogi was still in the NBA
Picked him up on a ten day.
And signed him through the year and team option into the next.
I had a prop bet on Kawhi scoring 35+ and Clippers winning 🙃
I took Mitchell over 30.5… cry together?
On what? He came one point short, I lost.
These uniforms kinda look like bucks vs nets lol
Yo i love garbage time lmao the clippers really sent out Darryl from the office but skinny
