Utah Jazz Try To Avoid Sweep By Clippers
(KUTV) The Utah Jazz roster is set, as the NBA trade deadline came and went without the Jazz making a move.
How did that go over with the team? It was good news to many of the Jazz players that spoke after Friday's practice.
The team is now in Los Angeles for Saturday's game with the Clippers, and like the old saying goes: If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
The Jazz have lost to the Clippers at EnergySolutions Arena twice this season. But they were narrow defeats, one by a single point and the other by two. Utah also lost by 11 points in Los Angeles.
The Jazz are motivated and believe they match up well with L.A., but they also understand they'll have to give more than just a spirited effort to beat one of the top teams in the Western Conference.
