SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz guard Collin Sexton threw down a putback dunk in the fourth quarter against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.

Jazz guard Malik Beasley stole the ball from the Clippers and ran the other way when he attempted a layup but Collin Sexton trailed behind Beasley and grabbed the miss and threw down a two-handed dunk.

That play extended the Jazz lead to 100-95 with 9:32 remaining in the game. Sexton had 21 points, five rebounds, and six assists.

Jazz Amid Season Worst Losing Streak

After a stunning 10-3 start to the schedule, the Jazz have lost a season-high five straight games and eight of their last 10 overall.

The Jazz are winless since guard Mike Conley left the starting lineup due to a left knee strain on November 19 against the Portland Trail Blazers.

The team announced on Tuesday that Conley was considered day-to-day with the injury, but has been ruled out against the Clippers.

Conley is averaging 10.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 7.9 assists, 0.3 blocks, and 1.2 steals in 29.2 minutes per game for the Jazz this season.

The Jazz will also be without veteran Rudy Gay for the ninth straight game after suffering a sprained finger against the Philadelphia 76ers on November 13.

Clippers Without Leonard, Paul, Kennard

The Clippers will be without Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, and Luke Kennard when they travel to face the Jazz on Wednesday.

Guard Norman Powell is also listed as doubtful while Reggie Jackson is listed as questionable.

The Clippers will face one of the tougher turnarounds in the NBA after beating the Trail Blazers Tuesday night in Portland, overcoming an 18-point second-half deficit behind Powell’s 32 points.

That included a 22-point fourth quarter from Powell to down the Blazers 118-112.

The Jazz have been off since their Monday loss to the Chicago Bulls in which they blew their own double-digit second-half lead.

The Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers game is televised on AT&T SportsNet and can be heard on 97.5 The KSL Sports Zone. The game will also be streamed on DirecTV Stream and FuboTV.
