The LA Clippers managed to somehow beat the Utah Jazz on the road without their star Kawhi Leonard.


Leonard was sidelined due to a knee injury.  That news broke Wednesday afternoon and caused the line on this game to move from Jazz -2.5 to -8.

The next meeting will be a potential elimination for Utah as LA goes up 3-2 in this Playoffs series.

Leonard's injury could have him sidelines for the remainder of the post season.

Game 6 between the Jazz and Clippers will be on Friday, June 18 at 8 p.m. MDT on ESPN.

In the other game played Wednesday, Atlanta beat Philadelphia 109-106, resulting in the series going up 3-2 in the Hawks favor.

Trae Young scored 39 points and added to a postseason where he has become a breakout star.

"We keep fighting no matter what the score is. I'm proud of this team," Young said. "We have confidence in each other."

The Hawks had rallied from 26 down at one point.
