How will the Clippers do in the game against the Utah Jazz. What must the Clippers do earn a W? Who on the on should Los Angeles be careful of? Will the game be very high-scoring or a half-court struggle?

I almost had a heart attack during the Spurs game. I actually might be hospitalized after this game.

Unless the bottom half teams keep losing, this might be the game to determine if we stay in contention or Cancun bound.

I hate to say it... but were Cancun bound.

Maybe not mathematically... but I do not believe in miracles.

I was impressed with the defense Sindarius Thornwell played vs the Spurs. Let's see if he can slow down Donovan Mitchell.

If you are expecting we’ll win this game then reserve an ambulance. 😏😏

Our best coach doesn’t have an answer to Utah’s offense.

Not even upset get the best picks we can. This team will have plenty of recovery work done to fix this roster.

If this unit will cut the lead into 10 Doc will put Austin back.

Utah has been one serious team since the new year / post All-Star. They just turned into a whole new team, especially with Rubio shooting 43% 3PT over the last 30+ games or so, it's been quite wild.

26-5 since Jan 23, 15th in Ortg, #1 in Drtg by far and 1st in NetRtg, even above Houston who is second since then. Since March they are 14-3, leagues best defense, 11th in Ortg and 2nd in NetRtg to another crazy surging team in Philly.

No heart attack, but massive heart burn on this one.

Decent season considering all the injuries we had to deal with. Side note, do we have the worst defense in the league? We can’t get stops for our life. Teams are shooting uncontested.

Not doubting the worse defense. Probably because the main culprit must be DJ being less engaged most of the season.

Our fate's been sealed since that last loss to the Pacers. Time to look ahead to next season and hope that we can unload some of these injury prone players we have. In hindsight it's pretty obvious that our ridiculous injury situation gave us no real chance of playoff contention this season. I like both Beverly and Gallo in terms of talent, but let's face it, their inability to stay healthy just helped to hasten our ultimate demise this season. Would be nice to unload at least Gallo since he seems to be literally made of glass. Disappointing loss tonight but not surprising, DJ appeared to have checked out a few games ago, fully expect him to opt out and walk this summer. Looks like we're in full rebuild mode now.

I would like Beverly in our team next year. I would like to see him and Bradley as our two top defenders. DJ can walk for all I care and Gallo well you said it is Mr Glass. So no to Gallo.

Same here wasn’t even mad that they were down by 30 at one point. All we can expect is Jerry to work his magic in the offseason and making this team better next year.

For a guy like Jerry who is a self-proclaimed college basketball junkie, 2 lottery picks is a dream. Can’t wait to see who he picks. When’s the lottery? May?

I would have liked to make the playoffs, because that should always be the goal. Also, an upset in round one would be a fan's dream and you don't get that by heading to the lottery.

But hopefully, the ping pong balls drop our way and the rebuild is rapidly accelerated.

Now we can firmly focus on the draft... and hopefully get rid of the rivers!

Idk bro Beverly and Bradley are always injured too. I’m hoping we pass on Bradley unless it’s a minimum to prove himself. We have to find a way to get rid of Gallo though or limit him to 10-15 minutes a game lol

Yeah they have been injured before but I would like to see that two player combo and see what they have to offer. If it doesn’t work we can always trade them. Yeah getting rid of Gallo is gonna be a challenge specially after he played tons of games this season and was an asset to the clippers. (Sarcasm) 😂😂

The draft happens June 21st. Hopefully we get something good.

Try pairing Gallo and Beverley in a trade. Maybe Phoenix.

As crazy as this season has been, we’re still in it! The Wolves or Pelicans will slip up and we own the tie breaker with Denver. We must win out tho!

Pelicans have to drop 3 of their last 4, not going to happen. GSW already have the #2 spot locked up they don't have anything to play for, and they're nursing injuries. They will probably sit Durant, and Thompson and Curry are already out. I'm normally one of the more optimistic people here, but our season is over and the team seems to know it too judging by that thoroughly uninspired performance last night.

Our chances of going to playoff is not higher than zero, Ballmer and Jerry West should start talking now who will go and who will stay. Start from the coaching position down to the players.

If Jerry finds a way to get rid of Gallo then he really is the GOAT!

I've been hearing a lot of talk about how Doc should be given credit for keeping this team as competitive as possible through all the injuries and changes that took place on this team. In a sense, yes, he does deserve credit for keeping team afloat during adversity. However, when you do that, you also excuse his shortcomings from the 4 plus years he had CP3, Blake, and DJ. Fact is, he was brought in to take the next step. Other than helping them get through the Sterling debacle, he's failed miserably. Along with his terrible moves as GM, his use of the roster and biased towards players like his son, he's shown that he's too stubborn to lead this team going forward. His refusal to develop young players is a telling sign that he shouldn't be leading this team. I'm not saying young players like Reggie Bullock or Brice Johnson would be All Stars if they were playing, but the fact he wouldn't even play and allow them to grow is extremely disturbing. I really don't know why this is even a conversation. Yes he did some good here, but he's worn out his welcome. Doc has to go, plain and simple.
