Latest early playoff exit leaves bitter taste for Utah Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Once again, the Utah Jazz endured a postseason collapse. Making an early exit from the NBA playoffs stung much more this time.

The top-seeded Jazz fell to the Los Angeles Clippers in six games after blowing a 2-0 series lead. Injuries to All-Stars Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley, coupled with defensive deficiencies exposed by the Clippers' small-ball lineups, took down a Utah team after a dominating in the regular season.

For a team that surrendered a 3-1 series lead to Denver a season earlier, this latest postseason setback left an extra bitter taste.
