The Los Angeles Clippers will officially be without Serge Ibaka when they attempt to come back in their series with the Utah Jazz.
Ibaka hadn’t played since LA’s Game 2 loss to the Dallas Mavericks in the first round when he exited after just five and a half minutes. The former Raptor has been battling back issues much of the season and was limited to just 41 games in the regular season.
The seven-footer had a solid year for the Clip putting up 11.1 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game but played just over 18 total minutes in the postseason.
Like they have done much of the season, the Clippers will likely go small quite a lot as the series against the Jazz shifts to LA for Game 3. LA is a -4.5 home favorite at the FanDuel Sportsbook and -184 on the moneyline. Despite being favored while down 0-2 tomorrow night, the Clippers are +360 underdogs to come back and win the series.
