    Default 2017 NBA Playoffs: (4) LA Clippers vs. (5) Utah

    Been a while since the Jazz have been really competitive. Meanwhile the Clippers may be on their last ride. They've been really unlucky over the years and this might be the year things finally come together for them.

    On second thought, they're still the clippers.

    Prediction: in 6

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    I'd also say Jazz in 6
    Larry Bird qouted March 25th. 2015:

    Bird: I wanted to keep our group together because in the summer, if David and Roy opt out, we're back to zero, really. We don't have that much, so you leave your options open. If we did make a trade, I didn't want to take on a lot of contracts -- because that's what usually happens. Plus, I liked my guys. They're playing well. If we keep the core together and Paul comes back healthy, we'll be right back to where we were.

    Clippers in 6, I don't think this is a good matchup for the Jazz...plus I want to see Warriors/Clips again to see if their ship has completely sailed...can George Hill shut down CP3, not sure.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    My head says Clips in 6. They've been a tough matchup allllll year. They also have all the experience in the world.

    My heart says Jazz in 7. They have youth, defense, and have seemed healthy the last two games. Clippers are also known for choking.

    Utah pulls the upset 7 and finally ends this current Clippers regime.

    I think Utah has a very good chance to win this series. But I'm taking Clips in 4 and Gordon Hayward in Indy next season!

    EDIT: Also acceptable, Jazz in 4 and Blake Griffin in Indy next year. But of those two highly unlikely scenarios, Hayward coming here seems more plausible, and if I'm going to make ridiculous predictions based on wishful thinking, I'm going to want some sort of shred of possibility.

    To me this is the most interesting series, more so than even Rockets vs Thunder

    So when the Clips get destroyed in this series, and blow it up. Who should the Pacers target via trade on draft night.

    Clippers in 5, like I've been saying all year long Utah is not all that and they are going to struggle to score.

    I won't even have to watch this series to know what's going on. If you're posting a lot, then it means the Clipps are winning. If Ace posts a lot, it means Utah is winning. You two would be as amped for a Game 7 in that series as you would the Pacers-Cavs series.

    This will be a great series, if the Jazz are really healthy I think they can win in 6, they aren't going to win at home against the Clippers. I think the key match up here will be the experience of the clippers vs jazz and the savviness of Quinn Snyder, I think he is a very underrated coach, where as Doc Rivers is very over-rated.

    Clippers in 6, Jazz are a year away from contention.

    And next year they will have lost quite a few assets. Their time has to be now, otherwise extensions get in their way.
    Yay, we don't know what we're doing as a franchise! thanks PG!

    Hoping for a Clipper sweep. Maybe then PG and Lance can convince Hill to get the band back together..

    Better yet, convince Gordon Hayward to come home. None of it is happening though.
