The Los Angeles Clippers never seem to have a good time in Salt Lake City, and Tuesday night without Chris Paul and Mo Williams in uniform was no different for Los Angeles. The Utah Jazz beat the Clippers 108-79, ending the Clippers' three-game winning streak and extending a rather unfortunate road streak for the Clips in Utah.
The Clippers have now lost 16 straight games in Utah, and are 1-42 in their last 43 games in Salt Lake City dating back to 1990. Blake Griffin had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Clippers, who are 1-3 on the road this season. Los Angeles shot 36.5% from the field on Tuesday night, including just four for 20 from three-point range (20.0%).
Paul Millsap scored 20 points and C.J. Miles added 19 off the bench for the Jazz, who shot 47.6% from the field. Utah has won eight of their last nine games and is 7-1 at home this season. Al Jefferson scored 10 points and pulled down 13 rebounds for the victorious Jazz.
The Clippers complete their back-to-back-to-back set of games with a Wednesday night contest back in Los Angeles against the Dallas Mavericks. The Clippers hope to have both Paul (strained left hamstring) and Williams (sore right foot) back for that game, as both have missed the last two games.
