Time for the other series that supposedly matters to us!  Clips v. Jazz

Who are you rooting to lose? Blake or Hayward? Lol

I'd love to sign Hayward, so part of me wants Utah to lose. But then I remember how much I can't stand the whiny Clippers and want them to be reminded that they're the bootleg LA team they are.
I can haz rebounder?

This should be a fun game. Unfortunately, I'm only going to be able to watch the first half hour or so :(.

Clips catch a break. Gobert gets injured on the FIRST play. Literally, the first 24 seconds of the game.

What happened?

Knee injury on the first possession of the game. He had to be helped off.

What happened?

Banged knees with Mbah a Moute pretty hard while setting an off ball screen for Hayward. Gobert goes down and can't get up so he crawls on the floor trying to get back on defense. Jazz take a foul and Gobert is helped up and hobbles to the back. Seems like he can't put weight on it.

That's terrible.  He came back in a big way from his injury last year.
And the Jazz have been doing everything right, and this happens as soon as their first playoff series starts?

That really sucks! Hopefully after some rest and testing, it won't be as bad as it looked.

I have no idea who to root for in this Clippers/Jazz matchup.

A Jazz loss would help with the Hayward chase certainly, but not having HCA, they're expected to lose, which might not be enough of a blow for Hayward to leave.

On the other hand, a loss by the Clippers would almost make big changes this summer inevitable, and Griffin is the prime suspect to change teams. And if he doesn't re-up with LA, then I think we have to be the front-runners for him.

Blake is a much better fit here with our current needs, too, so I'm going to be rooting for a Jazz series win.

Might be an ACL.

Yep. And one would assume that the implications could be far-reaching if he were to miss the entire series. Hayward leaving would be franchise-crippling.

Yeah, I think I'd rather have Blake here too. He's got 3 point range now and he handles the ball like a guard. We'd have the most versatile frontcourt in the game with Horford and Blake.

I'd say root for LAC to win then get eviscerated by GSW. Hayward would be upset with a lack of progress, while Blake would feel capped by the West.

Left knee sprain (won't return) for Gobert. Judging by the vagueness of the diagnosis and swiftness with which they ruled him out, I'm not expecting to see Gobert until the 2017-18 season.
