Utah Jazz: Playoff Schedule Set For First Round vs Clippers
They ended it the same way, winning seven in a row to clinch the No. 4 seed in the West and home-court advantage in the playoffs.
LOS ANGELES For the Clippers, the return of the postseason means a reminder of their failures, the painful and fluky exits from the playoffs in three straight seasons. By virtue of winning the season series against the Jazz, 3-1, the Clippers own the tiebreaker.
LOS ANGELES In a flawless world, Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan would not have been on the court in the second half of the Clippers' regular-season finale on Wednesday, a 115-95 victory over the Sacramento Kings.
They have come to grips with the fact that Griffin (left quadriceps tendon) and Chris Paul (broken right hand) both were sidelined in Game 4 of a first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers in 2016, leading to the Clippers' losing the series in six games.
"We won the game, we have home court, it's all good", Rivers said. DeAndre Jordan anchored the defense with two early blocks and had his way with Willie Cauley-Stein on the offensive end, finishing the quarter with seven points and seven rebounds.
"I don't have any love for the Clippers", coach Dave Joerger said. "This is like our baseline". We have a chance to get it. "You always say that when we come out on the other side we are going to be better for it, and I truly believe that we are".

Langston Galloway finished with 14 points, six assists and four boards in the defeat, as Sacramento shot 49.4 percent (40-of-81). Blake Griffin, who finished with 15 points, had eight in the spurt, while Redick and Chris Paul added five each.
Los Angeles has won 18 of the last 22 meetings with the Kings. "We've played for it all year". They almost lost Jordan, a two-time All-Defensive Team selection, to Dallas via free agency two years ago before a last-minute change of heart.
When the deal went down, the Kings were just 1 1/2 games out of the final playoff spot with a favorable schedule ahead that included three games against Denver, the team that held the eighth spot at the time.
While Paul has reportedly agreed to re-sign with the Clippers after this season, Griffin has been the subject of trade rumors as recently as this past February.
It's the most important game of the Utah Jazz's season and Joe Ingles, Dante Exum and the rest of their teammates will not be involved. Jordan has a year remaining, with a player option for 2018-19.
