LA Clippers vs Utah Jazz Prediction and match preview – July 15, 2022 | 2022 NBA Summer League

The LA Clippers will play their fourth NBA Summer League game, taking on the Utah Jazz at the Thomas & Mack Center. Both teams head into the encounter after losses in their previous matches.

The Clippers played the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday. After starting the game soft, the Clippers showed some life in the second half. But that wasn’t enough as the Nuggets came away with an 80-75 win on the night.

Jay Scrubb led the Clippers in scoring with 18 points. Reggie Perry and Cam Reynolds had 11 points each.

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz faced the Toronto Raptors in their previous game. They had a bad first half, where they only managed to score 30 points. Although they pushed hard in the second, the Raptors held on and took an 80-74 win on the night.

Jared Butler led the way for the Jazz with 12 points, while Leandro Bolmaro added 11 points. However, none of their performances were enough to prevent a loss for the Jazz.

The Clippers have one win and two losses in the Summer League so far. They will be looking to bring their best to this game.

One of the Clippers’ best players in the tournament was Jay Scrubb. The young guard is averaging 14.7 PPG in three games.

Another player who has done well is Jason Preston. He had an injury-laden season last time out, but he’s looked good for the Clippers in the Summer League.

Heading into that game against the Utah Jazz, the Clippers are hoping to end their two-game slump. They struggled to switch to the attacking side.

The team is yet to score more than 100 points in the tournament. If they are able to do that, they could definitely fight back and get a win on Friday.

Key Player – Jay Scrubb

Jay Scrubb was drafted by the Brooklyn Nets but was traded to the LA Clippers as part of a deal between the two teams. He signed a two-way deal with the team and as part of that, he also plays for their G-League affiliate, the Ontario Clippers.

Last season, Scrubb played 18 games with the LA Clippers. He had limited playing time, but was later ruled out due to a season-ending injury.

Scrubb hopes to bring his best in the Summer League and gain a few more minutes during the regular season.

The Utah Jazz have two wins and one loss in three games so far. They enter the Summer League after a winless leg of the California Classic.

One of the biggest issues they have faced throughout these games is their offense. The team struggled to score points and this often leads to poor performances in their matches.

Jared Butler did his best for the Jazz. His ability to make dynamic plays and involve his teammates has worked well for them. They also have the presence of Tacko Fall on the boards and that has been a help as the big man has averaged 15 RPGs so far.

However, as Game 4 of the Summer League approaches, the Jazz will be looking to make an effort to improve their offense.

They are certainly still in the race to finish in the top two, so a win would be crucial for them. However, the Clippers are a tough team themselves and will try to pull off a win and spoil the Jazz’s chances.

Key Player – Jared Butler

Jared Butler was part of the Jazz team last season. He made 42 appearances and also started a match for them. The Summer League is definitely a platform for Butler to show off his abilities to the team.

As the organization heads toward a rebuild, Butler could get a lot more minutes next season.

A victory against the Clippers is very important for Utah. However, for that to happen, Butler will need to have a big night when he takes to the court on Friday.
