Clippers vs Jazz start time, channel

The Clippers vs Jazz live stream starts at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT today (June 16).
It will air on TNT, which is available on Sling TV, currently on sale down to $10 for the first month.

It's time for the Clippers vs Jazz live stream, and the Clippers are both with and without momentum. Yes, they took the last game, but Paul George and company will try to make up for the indefinite absence of Kawhi Leonard in this NBA playoffs live stream. Can Donovan Mitchell and co. take advantage?

Where were you when Kawhi made his latest poster? With 1:26 to play in the second quarter of Game 4 and the Clippers already leading by 22 points, Kawhi Leonard put a juke on Royce O’Neale at the top of the key and drove the lane. Utah’s Derrick Favors waited by the basket for the two-time finals MVP. Leonard rose up and threw down a thunderous dunk, posterizing Favors. 

Now in Game 5, the Clippers won’t have Kawhi and plays like that to boost them. Leonard sat out the final minutes of Game 4, after suffering a knee injury and will not play Wednesday night. Leonard could also miss the rest of this series.

For the Clippers there’s no making up for Kawhi not being available, but Paul George is coming off his two best playoff games in a long time. George netted 31 points in Game 4 marking his first back-to-back 30-point performances in his last 22 postseason games. George also pulled down a game-high 9 rebounds in Game 4.

Utah will now host Game 5 Wednesday night looking to take momentum from the Clippers. The Jazz won both home games before heading to Los Angeles. Donovan Mitchell has been Utah’s most consistent player dropping at least 30 points in every game this series.  Mitchell averaged 41 points through Games 1 and 2 in Salt Lake City in this Western Conference Semifinal.

The Jazz are 2.5-point home favorites going into Game 5. The over/under is 222.

How to avoid Clippers vs Jazz blackouts with a VPN

If you've had to leave your own "bubble" -- or you've been hit by a dreaded local blackout -- and you can't watch Clippers vs Jazz live streams on cable, you're not out of luck. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. 

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. It offers superb speeds and excellent customer service. But you've got other VPN options as well. Here are our top picks.

ExpressVPN

We think speed, security and simplicity make ExpressVPN second to none. During our tests, we saw fast connection times, and we're impressed by the service's ability to access more than 3,000 services spread out across 160 locations in 94 countries. 

Clippers vs Jazz live stream live streams in the US

In the U.S. Clippers vs Jazz live stream airs on TNT, tipping off at 10 p.m. ET today (June 16).

If you've already cut the cord and don't have a cable package, you'll be able to get this game on Sling TV. We like FuboTV, but Sling has both ESPN and TNT (while Fubo only has the former) in the Sling Orange package, which costs $35.

Both are two of the picks on our best streaming services list, but you might be annoyed to learn Sling doesn't have ABC (which you can get with one of the best TV antennas). That said, ESPN3 is simulcasting ABC NBA playoff games, so you'll be good with Sling.

Sling TV

Sling TV: You can get ESPN3 and TNT in the Sling Orange package. The 30-plus channels in the lineup include AMC, CNN, Food Network, AMC, Comedy Central, HGTV and many more.
