Game Four Recap:

The Utah Jazz looked sluggish and unmotivated during the first half of game four against the Los Angeles Clippers. Utah only scored 13-points in the first quarter, and Donovan Mitchell was the leading scorer half way through the second quarter with four points. The Clippers on the other hand, picked up where they left off, scoring at will and making the Jazz pay for their multiple sloppy mistakes.

There was a moment in the second quarter where Utah was down by nearly 30-points, and didn't look to have any sense of motivation to get back into the game. Thankfully, Utah came out firing after halftime, chipping away at the Clippers lead and narrowing the deficit to 10-points late in the game.

Donovan Mitchell led the team with 37-points, while Bojan Bogdanovic added 5-assists.

Unfortunately, it was too little too late for Utah, as they would eventually fall in game four 118-104. The series is now tied 2-2 and will return to Salt Lake City on Wednesday night.
