    This will be a forced game 7 series.


    Hayward is a free agent after this, so even though they take a L this series; it still has to be very competitive.

    Clippers in 6. They have the best player plus more experience.

    one thing going for the Jazz is that is by the far the healthiest they have been all year. Hill has been healthy the past two games and has looked good, Hood is healthy, Favors looks like he has finally gotten past his knee injury and actually looks like he did last year. This actually brings up a small conundrum of who start between Ingles and Hood. Ingles has been much better this year, but Hood has way more talent and upside.

    I think the Clippers win the series, but I hope the Jazz take it as I think they'll be a bigger challenge for the Warriors in Round 2. I think this one almost certainly goes 6 or 7 games, though, regardless of who wins.

    It's not a particularly good sign when your argument for someone's health is that they've been healthy for two games.

    But I'm totally split on this one. Jazz are clearly the better team. But Clips have home court, experience and the best player, plus I sort of believe that they have another gear they can reach in this series. I'm gonna say Clips in seven. But I don't feel good about it.

    I dunno man. Gobert's a pretty efficient machine. He might even be better than Paul at this point.

    More this year than ever the Clippers mental aspects are the most suspect. If they don't get out of the first round are they more likely to get blown up? I think so, and they will probably have an effect.

    This could easily be the best/most chippy first round series this year. The back and forth comment between Gobert and Paul gave this a nice little narrative. I'm going to go with Jazz in 7 but really win be surprised either way. The Clippers big 3 may be too much for them.

    Clippers in 7. Home court will be the difference.

    I don't get what you are saying. he came back and played two games at the end of the season and gets 4 more days of rest.
