Wednesday's Game of the Day: Washington at Los Angeles Clippers, while the NBA looks elsewhere (Ball Don’t Lie)

The 2016-17 NBA regular season, thankfully, is nearing an end. Since we all need the reminders as to who is set to start the playoffs where, who needs a bump during awards season or with a statistical accomplishment, and who is doing their best work in losing in order to grab improved lottery ball odds, Ball Don’t Lie is set to look at what should be your game of that particular day between now and the end of the term on April 12. Chris Paul moves slower than the human eye can comprehend.

Jazz hope to continue upward trend vs. Kings (The Associated Press)

A little bit of rhythm from Rodney Hood has the Utah Jazz playing more spirited tunes than they were over the weekend. Forward Gordon Hayward and his 21.3 points per game are questionable for Utah’s game Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings at Golde…

Jazz sink Pelicans 108-100 behind Gobert, hot shooting (The Associated Press)

Clippers blow an inconceivable 18-point, fourth quarter lead to the loss-seeking Kings (Ball Don’t Lie)

It should have been the Clippers’ Sunday. Scheduled for its familiar Sunday matinee against a lowly opponent from Sacramento that was incentivized to lose, the Clippers could have downed the lottery-bound Kings on its way toward a virtually-even mark with the fightin’ Utah Jazz, and easy-elbowed its way into further room in the Western playoff bracket ahead of the exhausted Oklahoma City Thunder. Instead, the Clippers let it slip away.

Rudy Gobert after big loss to Clippers: 'Some of us just think about scoring' (Ball Don’t Lie)

Rudy Gobert’s Jazz are now just a half-game ahead of the Clippers in the West. The Utah Jazz have been one of the great successes of the 2016-17 season. Tabbed as a very likely playoff team heading into the season, the Jazz have met the upper bounds of those expectations and entered Saturday’s game at the Los Angeles Clippers in fourth place in the West, or 1 1/2 games up on their opponents for homecourt advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

'4-foot-9' J.J. Barea can't help but laugh after ejection for pushing Blake Griffin (Ball Don’t Lie)

With the Mavs holding a 63-58 lead over the visiting Clips at American Airlines Center, Griffin and center DeAndre Jordan sidled up to the diminutive Barea to set a double-screen allowing point guard Chris Paul to get downhill and start attacking into the teeth of the Dallas defense. It’s a set we’ve seen L.A. run countless times, except this time, the Mavericks point guard took exception to Blake shoving his hand away and giving him an extra bump as he worked his way into screening position.
