Monday, November 21, 2022, at 10:30 PM ET, the Los Angeles Clippers and Utah Jazz square off in Los Angeles, California’s Crypto.com Arena. The Jazz defeated the Clippers 110-102 in their first game of the season on November 6 as 3.5-point road underdogs with a total of 218.5 points. Rudy Gay (hand) is not playing for Utah, while Mike Conley’s knee ailment leaves his future uncertain. On the other hand, the Clippers are missing Luke Kennard (calf), and Paul George (knee) is doubtful to play. The Utah Jazz (12-6; 12-6 ATS) beat the Portland Trail Blazers 118-113 on the second day of a back-to-back set after ending their three-game losing streak with a 134-133 home victory over the Phoenix Suns this past Friday. Monday’s final game of a three-game homestand for the Los Angeles Clippers (10-7; 8-9 ATS) will be played as they look for their third straight victory.

In that eight-point loss to the Jazz three weeks ago, the Clippers shot just 8 for 33 from beyond the arc, dropping the fourth quarter 26-17. I expect a much stronger performance this time, especially after the Clippers recently destroyed the Spurs with 21 3-pointers. The Clippers may not have enough firepower to outlast the Jazz, who will likely be without Mike Conley, and to further worsen their case, Paul George may be absent for Monday’s game. The Jazz has been the season’s biggest welcome surprise, and they can defeat the Clippers twice on the road. Although LA has one of the league’s greatest defenses, and the Clippers will be eager to exact revenge, they will be playing a Utah team that has performed well against the Clippers’ local rivals. Utah is tipped to cover the spread here as underdogs.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: The Miami Heat is fatigued

  • The Heat are immensely short-handed
  • Minnesota ranks 16th in the NBA in both adjusted offensive efficiency
  • Jimmy Butler sat out the Wizards game due to a knee injury and will remain on the shelf for the rest of Miami’s road trip.

On the second night of a back-to-back set, the undermanned Heat will face a formidable challenge. I’m supporting the Timberwolves to win and cover because Minnesota is gradually improving its form. They haven’t performed well against the spread so far this season, but the game against the injured Miami Heat presents a good chance for an ATS win. Miami has twice covered the spread in its last eight games across all venues. If the Heat hit a ton of 3-pointers, which I really doubt they will, they might be able to keep this game close. Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns will control the paint on the other side. Minnesota is to win here and cover the spread.
