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.
