So far, the story in both games of this series have gone the same way for the Clippers: close, but not enough. The Clippers were always going to need all hands on deck if they wanted to steal a game on the road against the Jazz.

And so far, the Clippers look like the most unbalanced team remaining in the NBA Playoffs.

Kawhi Leonard, Reggie Jackson and Paul George combined for 77 of the Clippers’ 111 points in Game 2. That means the rest of the team only scored 34 points. And look, I get it; the stars must shine in the playoffs. And normally I would agree. But teams need more than just “star power” to beat the Jazz in a seven-game series.

As much as people like to hate on the Utah Jazz, they still have one of, if not the, best defense in the league and the best individual defender in the league (Rudy Gobert). On offense, the Jazz have Donovan Mitchell, who pops off more often than not, and sixth man of the year Jordan Clarkson. The Jazz were built for consistency in both the regular season and in the NBA Playoffs. And now, they look poised to advance to the Western Conference Finals.
