  The Roundup—Jazz 97 Clippers 95

Gobert led the Jazz in rebounds, blocks and minutes played, missing just one game all season while the lineups juggled around him, and here he was getting knocked out of his playoff debut after one minute.

Paul pulled the Clippers within 90-89 on a 3 with 2:08 left in the game. "But we have to play better", Rivers said, striking the balance between soothing and concerned.

He knocked knees with Luc Mbah a Moute on the first possession of the game, which the Jazz won 97-95.

By my count, Griffin played good defense twice on the video - once when he was helping out on a drive in the first half, and the other when Johnson broke Griffin down.

Making their first playoff appearance in five years, the Jazz outshot the Clippers and narrowly controlled the paint, owning a 42-40 edge. Unfortunately, Johnson's experience was beneficial to the Jazz and it likely will be for the rest of their journey in the playoffs.

The Jazz held the Clippers to just a 99.5 offensive rating in tonight's game, and again, that was without their defensive player.

The equivalent age in previous censuses was 32 years in 2011, 28 years in 2006, 27 years in 2002 and 26 years in 1991. This year's stats have shown that the average weekly rent rose by a whopping 16.8% between the years 2011 and 2016.

Hours after the final buzzer sounded, an MRI revealed there was no structural damage to Gobert's knee, but that he'd suffered hyperextension and a bone bruise.

The Clippers' resurgence ended when the series returned to Utah, with the Jazz winning Game 5, 98-89.

This year's NBA Playoffs began Saturday, unfortunately, the Los Angeles Clippers found themselves on the losing side. "We understand how important every single game is on that journey".

We haven't seen what a Jazz team looks like without Gobert. "It would be nice to get him back, obviously". In fact, he used his momentum to get to half court; hoping that the Clippers get the ball back so he could have a uncontested dunk.

In that series, Rivers became a symbol of the Clippers resilience, even as they lost in six games after starting the series with a 2-0 advantage. "We made it pretty tough on him". Gobert is also the team's third-leading scorer and top rebounder, averaging 14 points and 12.8 boards a game. However, Utah's ingrained ability to roll with the punches proved to be the pivotal factor in Game 1, an attribute that was tested on the first play of the series. He led the National Basketball Association in Defensive Win Shares (6.0), ranked third in overall Defensive Rating (99.2), 10th in Offensive Win Shares (8.3, ahead of Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Giannis Antetokounmpo, to give you some perspective) and 13th in Box Plus/Minus (5.9).
