The Jazz vs Clippers live stream is scheduled to start tonight at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT today Friday (June 18).
It will air on ESPN, which is available on Sling TV, currently on sale down to $10 for the first month.
The Jazz vs Clippers live stream is here, and it may prove how L.A. has the one thing many don't this post-season: a flexibility to adapt to injury. That's because Paul George and company seem ready to put the Clippers in their first ever Conference Finals, without Kawhi Leonard. If Game 5 was any indication, this will make for another action packed NBA playoffs live stream.
Before the Jazz and Clippers tipped-off in Game 5, L.A. found out they would be without Leonard (a two 2-time NBA Champion and two-time finals MVP) after he suffered an ACL injury in the previous match-up. Leonard is “out indefinitely.” Without Kawhi, the Clippers turned to Paul George. Lucky for L.A., George was starting to heat up in the playoffs with his first back-to-back 30-point playoff games in two years and he was able to keep that trend going Wednesday night.
In Game 5, George rose to the occasion. The seven-time all-star scored 37 points, his highest playoff total since he was with the Pacers in 2016 and he also pulled down a career high 16 rebounds. His efforts helped the Clippers to a 119-111 win. “It’s no secret I had to be big tonight,” George told reporters after the game, “and [I] got to be big going forward.”
If the Jazz are going to force a Game 7, they can’t afford a drop in production like they suffered in the third quarter in Game 5. Utah led by five at the half, before going 0-for-10 from three in the third quarter and just 4-for-23 in the second half. Meanwhile the Clippers came alive in the third, outscoring the Jazz 32-18. Utah’s star guard Donovan Mitchell was just 1-for-9 from three in the second half. He scored 21 points in the game, a low for him this postseason.
The Clippers go into Game 6 as 2.5-point favorites. The over/under is 219.5.
How to avoid Jazz vs Clippers 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 Jazz vs Clippers 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.

Jazz vs Clippers live stream live streams in the US
In the U.S. Jazz vs Clippers airs on ESPN, tipping off at 10 p.m. ET today (Friday, June 18).
If you've already cut the cord and don't have a cable package, you'll be able to get this game on Fubo TV and Sling TV, in the Sling Orange package, which costs $35. And we're recommending the latter, because NBA season needs TNT, which is not on Fubo.
Sling's low pricing is one of the features that makes it one of the best streaming services, 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: 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.
