The Los Angeles Clippers were down 19 at the start of the fourth quarter, but managed to come back to the game and fight for their fifth win this season.
However, the huge comeback was not enough as the Utah Jazz leaned to Michael Conley’s 33-point performance to go over the 50 percent mark (3-2).
The Clippers’ head coach Ty Lue was proud of the grind that his team showed throughout the game. The Clips could not find their groove in offense shooting just 38.8% from the field.
In particular, George shot 6-of-22 from the field with five of his makes being from beyond the arc, while Lou Williams had just seven points in 25 minutes of play.
At the top of that, Kawhi Leonard was the top performer of his team with 20 points shooting 8-of-19 from the field. He also registered 16 rebounds and nine assists.
That loss put an end to a two-game winning streak for the Clippers, who are facing off the streaky Phoenix Suns on Monday as part of a short two-game road trip.
