Clippers vs. Jazz score: Live NBA playoff updates as Utah, Los Angeles seek 3-2 series lead in pivotal Game 5

The Los Angeles Clippers managed to tie up the series with the Utah Jazz, after falling behind 2-0 for the second consecutive time. With the series tied at two apiece, Game 5 is a pivotal game, as the winner will have the chance to move on to the Western Conference finals in Game 6. After facing a halftime deficit, the Clippers have pulled ahead in the third quarter to take a lead over the Jazz into the final frame. 

As noted above, the Clippers will be without Kawhi for Game 5 and potentially the remainder of the series. Obviously, that is going to have a massive impact on both ends of the floor for the Clippers as they’re losing their best defender and their top offensive option alongside Paul George. Now, George will need to put Los Angeles on his back if the Clippers want to avoid a 3-2 deficit to Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert and the Jazz.
