Conley missed Game 1 of the Jazz’s second-round matchup vs. the Clippers with a hamstring injury, and he has been ruled out for Thursday’s Game 2, as well. Joe Ingles entered the starting lineup in place of Conley on Tuesday, while Jordan Clarkson played 28.4 minutes off the bench. Donovan Mitchell also continues to carry a massive usage rate during the playoffs. He’s posted a mark of at least 40.5% in three of his past four contests, and he finished with 45 points in Game 1 vs. the Clippers. The result was a playoff-high 59.1 FanDuel points.
The Jazz put themselves in a huge hole with a dreadful shooting performance in Game 1 — they ultimately trailed by 13 points at halftime — but they were still able to pull out the victory. The Jazz’s Net Rating decreased by -11.9 points per 100 possessions with Conley off the court during the regular season, so they’ll have their work cut out for him in Game 2. That said, the Jazz are currently listed as three-point favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.
