Here is what people on social media are discussing during Game 1 of the Utah Jazz’s second-round series against the L.A. Clippers.
Mike Conley’s absence = Jazz loss?
It was already at least slightly unlikely the Jazz’s starting point guard would play Game 1 against the Clippers after tweaking his right hamstring in the final game against the Memphis Grizzlies. But the team made that official before Tuesday’s game.
It’s clear the Jazz need Conley to go far in the playoffs. But fans on social media were already counting out the Jazz against the Clippers with him out.
There is some good news on that front, though. Conley was seen getting up some shots pregame. Game 2 is on Thursday.
