The Los Angeles Clippers will attempt to reach the conference finals for the first time in franchise history when they meet the Utah Jazz in Game 6. Utah will attempt to send the series back to Salt Lake City for Game 7. Kawhi Leonard is out indefinitely with a knee injury, but Paul George has been carrying the Clippers in their last three wins.

Jazz vs. Clippers, 10:00 p.m. ET, ESPN

Pick ATS: Jazz -2

The third quarter of Game 5 unraveled the Jazz. They went 0-10 from behind the arc while the Clippers hit 5-11 triples. Utah likely won’t have a similar slump again and will be desperate to send the series back home. George has been great, but can LA’s supporting cast do it again without Leonard? Take the West’s top seed to force Game 7.

Player Prop: Paul George over 46.5 points, rebounds and assists (-113)

George has to be the engine if the Clippers want to close out this series. He was strong in Game 5 with Leonard sidelined, going for 37 points, 16 rebounds and five assists. The rebounding numbers might not be there, but George should top 30 points again easily. That’ll help out on this prop.
