Jared Vanderbilt also scored a tip, and Utah, who continued to take the upper hand in the high fight, completely broke the Clippers’ inner and outer defense with Clarkson’s mid-range jumper and Makanen’s outer shot. Utah brought all the key players to the bench with 1:50 left before the end.
Since then, Utah has won the Clippers, where Moussa Diabite played for the rest of the time, by 125-112, 13 points.
