The Utah Jazz have been struggling with injuries during this playoff season. In game one they lost their center Rudy Gobert to a knee injury. He has since recovered and played a few games. Gordon Hayward did not play in the last game due to food poisoning. The Clippers have also suffered a devastating loss when their best player, Blake Griffin, went out with a toe injury. He will be missing the rest of the playoffs. The Clippers seemed to struggle without Griffin, losing game five 92-96. Gordon Hayward came back with a fury after recovering from food poisoning. He ended the night with 27 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists. Rudy Gobert also had a double double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.  The Clippers’ Chris Paul did everything he could to help them out and ended with 28 points, 9 assists, and 4 rebounds. The Jazz are favored to advance and take on the Warriors, which they can do if they take down the Clippers in game six.
