Underdogs went 2-1 ATS tonight, but favorites still lead 18-16-1 ATS (52.9 percent) in the NBA playoffs. Unders went 2-1 tonight, but overs still lead 20-15-1 (57.1 percent).

Jazz 96, Clippers 92 (final): The series returns to Utah with the Clippers on the brink of elimination. Joe Johnson continued his clutch dominance. Gordon Hayward (27 points) bounced back strong after exiting Game 4 early due to food poisoning. Rudy Gobert (11 rebounds, 5 steals, 2 blocks) anchored a smothering defensive outing. And Chris Paul (28 points, 9 assists) couldn't do enough to carry the Clippers to a win without Blake Griffin.
