Markkanen notes that most of his minutes with the Jazz thus far have included Mike Conley in the lineup, so it’s an adjustment playing more with Sexton and THT. Said there is trust in everyone, but there’s work to do to get everyone on the same page. – 1:28 AM

Jazz lose to LAC, 121-114. It was a sloppy game… Jazz’s transition D cost them early, offense late. Jazz shot just 2-10 from deep and had 6 TOs in the 4Q.
Clarkson had 26/4/4, was great. Markkanen 25/10.
Detroit at home (with Bogey!) on Wednesday. – 12:57 AM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Clippers defeat the Jazz 121-114 in what was a good one. Los Angeles led by as much as 17. Utah came back to lead by 7. The Clippers did a great job of closing out. Utah falls to 12-7 on the season. Back home for one on Wednesday against Detroit. And then ANOTHER back to back – 12:57 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
FINAL: Clippers 121, Jazz 114. Just a rough 4Q for Utah, as they shoot 7-19 in the period. Really missed Conley’s playmaking and steadiness — Vando led the team in assists with 5. Jazz had 22a on 40 buckets. JC with 26p/4r/4a. Markkanen 25p/10r/3a. Back home vs. DET on Wednesday. – 12:56 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
LA beats Jazz 121-114 after losing 17-point lead.
30 for Norman Powell, 27 for Reggie Jackson. Another single-digit game for Kawhi Leonard, but he was a +12. His health bears watching, as usual.
26:16 assist-TO ratio for LA.
Clippers go up to Golden State before Thanksgiving. – 12:56 AM

Jazz got a steal when they needed one, but Beasley couldn’t convert the 3. He had a rough night — 2-11. That should do it. – 12:51 AM

Right as I say out loud “you gotta go for the steal”, Jazz get the ball and Clarkson runs it down, passes to Malik in the corner, but he misses. That’ll do it. – 12:51 AM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz up 5 going into the 4th, won the 3rd 37-22.
Honestly, I think the defense is the key here… the switching on the perimeter forced Clippers into midrange looks, and they only took 2 3PAs in the Q. Then they help in the paint when they try to drive on the switch. – 12:16 AM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Jazz take control of the game by beating the Clippers in possession game. They have 6 more offensive rebounds and 3 more takeaways entering 4th quarter, now lead 93-88 after outscoring LA by 15 points in 3rd quarter. 12 of that came with Kawhi on bench.
Jordan Clarkson = 6/7 FTs – 12:16 AM

Clippers were in transition 26% of the time in the first two quarters it is now down to 19% of their posssesions.

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Jazz go on a run at the end of the 3rd and head into the 4th with a 93-88 lead. Lauri Markkanen has 23 pts, Jordan Clarkson has 22.
Kelly Olynyk probably set to check back in, was in a little foul trouble and I think Hardy was saving him/happy with how the group was playing – 12:15 AM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
End 3Q: Jazz 93, Clippers 88. Utah started the game 1-9 from 3 — it’s hit 9-19 thereafter. Defensive intensity has improved, too. Markkanen 23p/9r/3a. Clarkson 22p/4a/3r. – 12:15 AM

This has been a comprehensively bad 3rd quarter for Clippers.
Jazz went on 9-0 run to push ahead. Talen Horton-Tucker found a 3 after no Clippers got on the floor with Clarkson in the paint. And John Wall is working on a double-digit turnover game.
It’s an 87-84 Jazz lead. – 12:09 AM

Jordan Clarkson leads Utah with 17 points. Lauri Markkanen has 12 and Collin Sexton has 10….Sexton struggled to make plays for others but scored and touched the paint well. I thought he was a factor in the Jazz getting back into the game – 11:40 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
+/- superstar Kawhi Leonard is a +11 at halftime.
The usual high floor that we’ve seen from Kawhi so far. Low volume (2 points, 1/4 FGs, 0/1 3s, no FTs), 2 assists, no turnovers.
5 Clippers have more shot attempts than Leonard at halftime. – 11:39 PM

Josh Newman @Joshua_Newman
If Utah can get one off Mississippi State on Wednesday, you come home feeling good at 5-1, although the one was a clunker at home.
St. Thomas, a transitional D1, shows up here on Saturday having pushed around some low-majors and given Creighton all it could handle in Omaha. – 11:20 PM

Bench play in LA with 6:19 left in first half
Utah Jazz: 8 points, 3/11 FGs, 2 rebounds, 2 assists
John Wall: 13 points, 5/7 FGs, 5 assists
Norman Powell: 12 points, 2 rebounds, 4/6 FGs
Nicolas Batum: 3 points, 2 rebounds, 5 assists
LA up 52-35. – 11:20 PM
Janis Carr @janiscarr
John Wall is having a night. In 11 minutes, he has 13 points, five assists and enough energy for the rest of the team.
Clippers lead, 52-35 with 6:19 left in the half. – 11:20 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
That time sexton made a good read….defense gave him a layup, he took a layup…. – 11:18 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
John Wall, who checks out after 11 minutes, has produced game-highs in points (13), assists (5) and anticipatory gasps from the crowd whenever he touches the ball. – 11:17 PM

Jazz down 16 early in L.A.
Jazz are desperately missing Mike Conley, and then are seemingly unable to defend in transition at all — they’ve been a bottom-5 team at preventing transition this season. – 11:13 PM
Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob
kawhi looks so laboured running the floor 🙁 – 11:12 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Malik Beasley’s new-baby magic appears to have worn off — missed another shot (0-4 now), then committed the foul on the other end. 44-28 Clippers, 9:50 left 2Q. LA shooting 62.1%, 12 FB points. Jazz shooting 42.3%, just 1-9 from 3. – 11:12 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
John Wall ⛽️⛽️⛽️⛽️
There’s no combination like backpedal and fear trying to stop fast break Wall. Malik Beasley got hunted down.
Wall’s and-one puts LA up 44-28 with a post-timeout free throw pending. 9:50 left in the first half. – 11:12 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
John Wall keeps running past the Jazz in transition. It’s like watching a wideout run a go-route past a DB. The Clippers have 12 fast-break points. Their season high in a first half is 17. – 11:12 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
This is looking like a short night for the Jazz. Down 44-28 and losing contact with the clippers rapidly…. – 11:12 PM

John Wall is playing with a level of joy and energy that we haven’t seen since the early days in Washington. And he fits very very well on the Clippers – 11:07 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
John Wall (and John Wall’s air guitar) from 41 feet ends first quarter.
LA leads Jazz 34-24.
Ivica Zubac played entire quarter, has 9 points (4/4 FGs) and 5 rebounds.
Jazz missed their last 7 3s of the quarter. – 11:07 PM
Janis Carr @janiscarr
John Wall throws up a 41-foot shot that goes in as time runs out to give Clippers 34-24 lead after 1st quarter. – 11:07 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Pretty bad quarter for the Jazz capped by John Wall hitting a halfcourt buzzer beater. Clippers up 34-24….Los Angeles is on a 17-6 run – 11:06 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
End 1Q: Clippers 34, Jazz 22. Wall with a halfcourt bomb at the horn. LA closes on a 17-6 run. Jazz schemed some good looks early, but have struggled with their shot (9-22/1-8 from 3), and their turnovers (6 leading to 8 Clippers points). – 11:06 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Half court buzzer shot from John Wall goes in at the end of the first quarter. Jazz trailing by 10 points. Decision making is predictably a problem without Conley here in the early going – 11:06 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
John Wall sinks a halfcourt shot at the first quarter buzzer and then delivered the Lance Stephenson air guitar celebration – 11:06 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
John Wall hits a three-point HEAVE to end the first quarter, and he plays an imaginary guitar after hitting from midcourt.
End of 1: Clippers 34, Jazz 24 – 11:06 PM

Usually the NBA alerts saying “so-and-so has passed player X” bring up the most random names. Not tonight. John Wall, meet MJ. pic.twitter.com/Bm5ypOMB4F11:00 PM

1st quarter Amir Coffey minutes. – 11:00 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Ty Lue liked that the Clippers made quick decisions within the offense Saturday night and that’s carried over. Outside of a couple long-gestating possessions early, the Clippers have swung the ball around or pushed it upcourt. – 10:59 PM

Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
John Wall ⛽️⛽️⛽️⛽️
Wall is basically Leonard’s direct backup, allowing Jackson to stay in the game and focus on spotting up, like he did after Wall’s first rebound of game.
Wall got himself a fast break bucket too to put LA on 7-0 run. They lead 24-18 with 2:59 left in 1stQ. – 10:57 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Clippers PA announcer on John Wall after a fastbreak: “He’s fast.” Sure is. Hasn’t looked like he’s lost a step at all. – 10:56 PM

Talen Horton-Tucker has turned himself into a good decision making point guard in the space of like 3 weeks. – 10:54 PM

It’s “Filipino Heritage Night” here at Crypto Place. For some reason, it feels like it’s always “Filipino Heritage Night” at road arenas whenever the Jazz (and Jordan Clarkson) are in town. – 10:51 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
The early non-Mike Conley offense has been a bit of a mess. Three turnovers leading to five LA points. Clippers on a 13-4 run, and holding a 15-11 lead. 6:43 left 1Q. – 10:49 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Dunk THREE from Reggie Jackson this season gives LA 15-11 lead.
Kawhi Leonard started the game watching Lauri Markkanen.
6:43 left in the first quarter. – 10:49 PM

6:43 remaining in the first quarter. The Jazz trail the clippers 15-11 – 10:48 PM

Sexton looked very frustrated on the prior possession the ball didn’t swing his way. So when it came to him after the Vando O-reb, it felt predetermined he was gonna shoot. – 10:47 PM

Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Utah’s Will Hardy says there are only a handful of players you have to scout not only offensively but also defensively, and Kawhi is still disruptive. – 9:13 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Hardy also cites the importance of Jordan Clarkson being a playmaker tonight. Praised the job he did in the Memphis game that Conley sat out, as well as his play down the stretch of the Portland game where Conley got hurt. – 9:07 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Hardy said the big differences with the Jazz tonight will entail some different halfcourt sets with Sexton and THT than with Conley bc of differing styles, but in transition he expects them to play the same. – 9:05 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Jazz head coach Will Hardy will start Collin Sexton in place of Mike Conley, along with Jordan Clarkson, Lauri Markkanen, Kelly Olynyk, Jarred Vanderbilt at LA tonight. – 9:03 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Will Hardy on the PG position tonight: You’ll see some Collin, some Talen, some Nickeil … I don’t expect those guys to orchestrate the game themselves. Collin Sexton will start. – 9:02 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
No update on Luke Kennard and his strained right calf. Ty Lue wasn’t sure whether he would be available for games Wednesday or Friday. – 8:56 PM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
After playing Denver on Tuesday, the Pistons will travel to Utah for their sixth B2B game of the season. 30 percent of their schedule to that point will have been on second night of B2B.
Not sure where that stacks up across the league, but that’s a rough 20-game start. – 8:55 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Clippers coach Ty Lue said there isn’t flexibility as of now to expand Kawhi Leonard’s workload in light of Paul George’s absence – 8:52 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Ty Lue says that now is not the time to increase Kawhi Leonard’s workload, even with Paul George out indefinitely – 8:52 PM
Mark Medina @MarkG_Medina
Clippers coach Ty Lue listed Paul George as day-to-day and said he’s doing “okay” with his injury. Ty held out hope that PG’s injury isn’t long-term. – 8:51 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Ty Lue says Paul George is “alright.” He says George is feeling OK. Asked if this is a long-term thing, Lue said the Clippers hope not. He said Clippers want to be cautious with George. – 8:51 PM

Terance Mann will start in place of Paul George tonight against Utah. – 8:51 PM
Andrew Greif @AndrewGreif
Before tipoff of Clippers-Jazz, Ty Lue says that Paul George (out with right hamstring) is “all right” and that the team considers him day to day.
“He feels OK, just making sure we’re doing the right thing,” Lue said. – 8:50 PM

Danny Ainge wants to rebuild (you know, tank), but Jazz players aren’t going along with the program. Utah starts the night with the best record in West.
