The Clippers and Jazz played a competitive fourth quarter, until the Jazz started pulling away in the final minutes.
In those final minutes, Blake Griffin looked sad, as he was out with an injury that’ll keep him sidelined through the rest of the postseason. It’s hard to blame him, when it feels like this constantly happens to the Clippers.
But look at that face.
Shortly after, Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, who is typically the happiest guy in the arena, was seen rather sad as well, while the Jazz put the Clippers to rest at the end of the game.
The Jazz eventually won by a final score of 105-98.
The Jazz and Clippers will now head to Los Angeles on Tuesday for a Game 5, with the series tied at 2-2. Utah got Rudy Gobert back on Sunday night, which will be big in the series moving forward with the absence of Griffin.
Whether it comes from the Clippers bench or not, this won’t be the last time we see some demoralized faces from this series.
