In Saturday’s Duke Brotherhood Playoff action, the LA Clippers rode a hot night by star forwards Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to beat Quin Snyder’s Utah Jazz, 132-106, and to possibly recast the series.

The two combined to shoot 26-48 for 65 points to make the series 2-1. Former Blue Devil Luke Kennard had six off the bench for LA.

If the Jazz seemed inevitable, they seem less so tonight.

Part of that is injuries. Snyder’s backcourt of Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell are both injured. Conley has yet to play in the series (hamstring) while Donovan has been sensational despite an injured ankle.

On Sunday, Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets will try to go up 3-1 on Milwaukee while the Suns, with three easy wins, are very likely to eliminate Austin Rivers and the Denver Nuggets.
