Utah Jazz: Blake Griffin leads Clippers over Jazz, 102-87

< Previous Page

The Jazz’s starting backcourt of Trey Burke and Gordon Hayward struggled through another poor shooting night. The two combined to go 5 of 26 from the field. Hayward did, however, hit free throws and finished with 15 points. For Burke, it was the fifth time in six games he had not reached double digits in scoring.

With Favors out, the Clippers were content to do their damage inside, outscoring the Jazz 54-30 in the paint.

"Derrick’s a rim protector," Jazz coach Ty Corbin said. "He’s a shot-blocker for us. He’s a physical specimen also, so he can take the bang and bump inside. … We need him. We need all our pieces."

Darren Collison added 11 points for L.A.

The Jazz were without forward Jeremy Evans, who stayed behind in Salt Lake for X-rays on his tailbone after a hard fall last night. The X-rays were negative for fractures.

With the loss, Utah dropped to 16-31 on the year. The Jazz now return home for a Monday night game against Toronto. The Raptors, who stomped the Jazz earlier this season in Canada, will be looking to erase the memories a tough 106-103 loss to Portland on Saturday.
