The Los Angeles Clippers (8-11) will host the Utah Jazz (10-11) on Thursday night. Here is how to watch this NBA game online.
Mired in a stretch of dismal play and players lost to injury, the Clippers on Thursday will look to get back on track when they host the Jazz. Tip-off is scheduled for 10:30 p.m. ET at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The Clippers are expected to be without big man Blake Griffin for the next two months and guard Patrick Beverley for the remainder of the season. They were both projected to be starters. Without them, Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers will turn to Lou Williams and their young forwards, Sam Dekker and Montrezl Harrell.
Utah has struggled after losing guards George Hill and Gordon Hayward to free agency over the summer. Their replacements, free agent Ricky Rubio and incumbent Rodney Hood, have not performed to the level of their predecessors. Yet thanks to their tireless defense maintaining its effectiveness, the Jazz have been able to tread water and stay in the playoff race.

ESPN’s Basketball Power Index gives the Clippers a 62 percent chance at home. The betting line for the game favors the Jazz by two points.
