Jazz seek knockout blow vs. Clippers

SALT LAKE CITY -- Veteran leaders were brought to Utah during the offseason to help give the Jazz a final push back into the NBA postseason. Those veterans have the team within a game of winning a playoff series.

If the Jazz can beat the Los Angeles Clippers for a third straight time Friday night, Utah would advance to face the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference second round. Utah holds a 3-2 lead over the Clippers after winning 96-92 on Tuesday.

Los Angeles won three times in four games against the Jazz in the regular season.
