[LOS ANGELES] — The Los Angeles Clippers played host to the Utah Jazz last night and the Clips did everything that was asked of them, walking away with the 108-95 victory. The win bumps Los Angeles's record up to 44-30 on the season, while the loss drags Utah's down to 44-29. Though a win's a win and Clippers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.
While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Rudy Gobert's 26 points, 14 rebounds, 1 assists, 2 blocks and 0 steals in 36 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Gobert, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Clippers. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Utah back in the win column before too long.
At the helm for the Clippers in the victory was Jamal Crawford and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Gobert, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Crawford posted 28 points, 2 rebounds and 3 assists in the win.
Los Angeles's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Jazz, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Clips will settle for the upper hand in this one.
Up next for the reeling Clips will be a date with the while the visiting Jazz will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Gobert 49.5 FP
Crawford 42.0 FP
Jordan 36.0 FP
