How to Watch Clippers-Jazz Game 5

The Clippers and Jazz will do battle tonight in a crucial Game 5.

NBA: Playoffs-Los Angeles Clippers at Utah Jazz Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers showed good fight in Game 4, but ultimately weren’t able to close the deal without Blake Griffin in the lineup. The Jazz got Rudy Gobert back, but subsequently lost Gordon Hayward during the game as he battled food poisoning. He’s going to be back in the lineup tonight for Utah, while our favorite large adult son, Austin Rivers, will step back into the Clippers’ rotation after missing several weeks with a hamstring issue.

The Clips have home court advantage in what is now a best-of-3 series, though that hasn’t exactly meant much to either side through the first four contests. How can you catch tonight’s crucial Game 5?
