Jazz is coming off a big 96-87 victory over Russell Westbrook’s Thunder on Saturday. Rudy Gobert led the team scoring 16 points, marking his third double-double in three games and 13 rebounds while Ricky Rubio finished with 16 points for the win.
The deadly trio of Gobert, Joe Ingles, and Ricky Rubio is averaging 14.7 points per game each. Rubio is adding 8.3 assists per game, while Gobert is averaging 12 rebounds. So it will be a tough night for the Clippers on Tuesday for sure.
Guard/forward Rodney Hood is dealing with a calf injury and is questionable for Tuesday’s game.
The Clippers opened their season with a 108-92 win over the in-state foes Los Angeles Lakers last week and then left the Suns in dark with a 130-88 victory on Saturday. Blake Griffin notched 29 points and eight rebounds while Patrick Beverley added 15 points and six steals in the game.
An MVP front-runner this season, Griffin has been dominating both sides of the court, he is leading the NBA in defensive win shares (0.143) at the same time is scoring 29 points per game.
Rookie point guard Milos Teodosic is out with a left foot injury so the backcourt could be a little loose on Tuesday.
