Clippers vs. Jazz score: Paul George, Los Angeles knock off Utah in Game 5 to take 3-2 series lead

The Los Angeles Clippers were facing an uphill battle entering Game 5 of their series against the Utah Jazz as they had to enter Salt Lake City without the services of their best player, Kawhi Leonard. In the end, that wound up not being much of an issue for them as the underdog came out on top in a 119-111 victory to take a 3-2 lead in the series.

When the Clippers needed him the most, Paul George came up clutch as he finished the win with a game-high 37 points to lead four players for Los Angeles finishing in double figures. On the other side, the Jazz wasted an effort where six players scored in double figures and, as a team, they knocked down 20 shots from beyond the arc.

With the win, Los Angeles now has an opportunity to close this series out at Staples Center on Friday night in Game 6.
