Clippers Vs. Jazz: L.A. Seeks Rare Win In Utah

The Clippers have lost their last 15 straight games in Utah, with their last victory a 96-89 win on January 22, 2003.

The Los Angeles Clippers look for their fourth consecutive victory on Tuesday night as they head to Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City to battle the Utah Jazz. The game is a battle of two teams playing well of late, as the Clippers have won six of seven and the Jazz have won seven of their last eight contests.

Point guard Chris Paul, who missed Monday's game against New Jersey with a strained left hamstring, is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in Utah. The game is the second of three games in three nights for the Clippers, who return home to face the Dallas Mavericks at Staples Center on Wednesday night.

The Clippers have lost their last 15 straight games in Utah, with their last victory a 96-89 win on January 22, 2003.

The 7-3 start for the Clippers is tied for the second-best in franchise history, surpassed only by the 8-2 start in 2005-2006, the last season the Clippers made the playoffs. The 1974-1975 and 1975-1976 Buffalo Braves also started 7-3, finishing with 49 and 46 wins, respectively.
