The Los Angeles Clippers will attempt to take a 2-2 series back to Salt Lake City when they host the Utah Jazz in Game 4 Monday. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George broke out in Game 3 to down the Jazz, who were once again without Mike Conley. Donovan Mitchell appeared to hobble to the locker room late in the game, but returned to the bench and later said he would be ready to go in Game 4.

Pick ATS: Jazz +5

Conley and Mitchell’s health situations can certainly impact this pick, but the Jazz stay in games with their three-point shooting. Don’t expect Bojan Bogdanovic and Jordan Clarkson to keep struggling like they did in Game 3. Mitchell will continue to produce and Utah’s defense should slow down Leonard and George enough to keep things tight.

Player Prop: Nicolas Batum over 1.5 assists (-195)

Batum has gotten two assists per game in each of the first three contests and is getting enough minutes to get two more in Game 4. He’s a good passer and always looks for the best shot, making him a good bet to hit the over.
