Lowry bounces back, Raptors edge Bucks to even series at 1-1
Winning Game 2 on Tuesday night revealed to the Clippers how taxing it is to win a playoff game against a formidable foe like the Jazz.

Blake Griffin scored 24 points and Chris Paul added 21 and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the Utah Jazz 99-91 in Game 2 to even their National Basketball Association playoff first-round series at 1-1 on Tuesday night. Blake Griffin had 26 points and seven rebounds for the Clippers while Chris Paul had 25 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.
"It was big. Our spirit was great, and I think it just carried over into the first quarter, with everybody being aggressive. Our offensive aggressiveness will carry over to defense".
The Big Three of Griffin, Jordan and Paul combined on 10-of-13 shooting and six rebounds in the first, when the Clippers shot 65 percent.
Deep down, the Jazz must also ask themselves if they're as desperate as the Clippers. "You're talking about probably the best pick-and-roll player in the league and you might have the best roller in the league", Jazz coach Quin Snyder said of Paul and Jordan, respectively. But they're both really good players, and hopefully we can - I won't say get lucky, but hopefully we can kind of continue to make it hard on them. "They got a lot of stuff at the rim, easy dunks, lobs, and some of that's what they do, but we for sure have to be better". Hayward totaled 39 points in the two games in Los Angeles, but he made only 12 of 33 shots from the field. Gordon Hayward scored 20 points and four of his teammates also scored double-digits in their loss. The meaning of those words often eludes even Jazz Nation faithful, but game two against the Clippers may have shed some light on it.
"They raised their level tonight", Snyder said. "But besides the first quarter, we played them pretty even". "It was a physical game, we had 60 points in the paint and only eight free throws". "There's no sense lamenting his absence".

Los Angeles didn't shoot well outside, but they didn't need to because they were able to get good looks inside.
CP3 came along in 2011-12, and the team improved and made the playoffs in Griffin's second year, right as Jordan was starting to emerge as a force inside for the team. At one point, Paul's mouthpiece went flying and landed on the opposite side of the court.
Blake Griffin and Paul led the Clippers in scoring for the second game in a row.
"Having said that, I've never seen a fan block a shot or get a steal", Rivers added. Los Angeles defeated Utah in three out of four head-to-head regular-season meetings, and all three of the Clippers' victories came by at least 13 points.
Now the entirety of the Clippers franchise may be in jeopardy if they drop game two on Wednesday.
With Joe Johnson the smallest Utah wing at 6-foot-7, length and size have been smothering LA's 3-point shooting, a huge key to its offense.
Hayward's biggest miss was an open 3-point try from the left wing.
