SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz look to defeat the Los Angeles Clippers for the third time this season during the two’s national television matchup.

The Clippers are set to host the Jazz for the second time in as many games on Friday, February 19.

Utah’s game against Los Angeles will broadcast nationally on ESPN.

The Jazz currently own the NBA’s top record at 24-5 and are coming off of a 114-96 win against the Clippers on February 17.

If the Jazz come home from L.A. with a pair of victories, their win streak will be extended to 10 games.

As of Friday, ESPN’s Basketball Power Index currently gave Utah a 50.3 percent chance to win the game.

Injury Report

During Utah’s second win of the season over the Los Angeles, the Clippers were without the services of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Luke Kennard, and Nicolas Batum.

On Utah’s side of things, Jazz guard Mike Conley missed his sixth consecutive game due to right hamstring tightness.

On Friday, the Clippers announced that their injured players would play in the national TV game.

Utah listed Conley as available to play as well.

NBA All-Stars

In between contests, the league announced the starters for the NBA All-Star Game.

Leonard was selected as an All-Star for the fifth time and as a starter for the third straight season.

Despite having the league’s best record, no Jazz players were named All-Star Game starters.

The Clippers host the Jazz again on Friday, February 19 at 8 p.m. (MDT). The game will broadcast on ESPN, AT&T SportsNet, and 97.5 FM.
