Jazz vs Clippers NBA Playoffs WCSF Game 1: This series can be a close one considering the form both teams have displayed.

The Clippers will need a lot of muscle to contain Gobert while the Jazz will have to put pincers on both George and Leonard who are showing an incredible touch. Meanwhile, the Jazz has a lot more depth and Donovan Mitchell can also prove to be a matchup nightmare.

*Stats from postseason*
Projected Fantasy Points: 56
The Claw is capable of producing high-quality offense on a regular basis. Kawhi has shown that he can be the best player late in the game and can make the Clippers overcome tough opponents. However, the task may be even tougher against a terrific defensive unit in Jazz. He is also a superb option as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Donovan is a capable guard who can go on multiple scoring outbursts and is central to the Jazz’s success. Utah’s record was worse when Mitchell was out so it is clear that his presence is integral for the team. The Clippers will need to contain Donovan if they are to have a better chance of winning.
Rudy is one of the most intimidating big men in the league and has the capacity to disrupt the opposition’s offense. Gobert is a superb inside player and can also pile up rebounds, making him the very definition of a Center. He can feast upon a relatively smaller lineup of Clippers inside.
George will be huge in the series and may even draw up the assignment of Mitchell. However, George is not solely a defender and has the skill set to score, rebound, and also dish out assists. PG-13 will play a huge role against a tough Jazz team and the Clippers will need his output to overcome them.
Bojan Bogdanovic: PPG: 18.4 RPG: 4.8 SPG: 1.2 TPG: 1.8
Bojan has immense scoring talent and will be tough for the Clippers to contain with his incredible shooting range. Bojan not only stretches the floor for the team but is a more than decent team defender.
Reggie Jackson: PPG: 15.4 RPG: 3.4 TPG: 1.5 PFP: 26
Jackson has turned his game to the highest gear during the Playoffs and that has paid dividends for the Clippers. He will be one of their constant options on offense and the Jazz will have to pay attention to him.
Jordan Clarkson: PPG: 18.6 RPG: 3.2 TPG: 2.8 PFP: 30
Jordan is a “microwave” off the bench and his scoring, dribbling, and driving capacities will enable him to destroy opponents in a flash.
Mike Conley: PPG: 17.4 APG: 8.6 RPG: 3.8 TPG: 1.6 PFP: 40
Marcus Morris Sr.: PPG: 11.4 RPG: 4.0 PFP: 22
PG: R Jackson, J Clarkson
SG: K Leonard(SP)
SF: B Bogdanovic
PF: N Batum, G Niang, R O’Neale
