The Clippers, who face some serious remodeling this summer, began moving out of the house Tuesday night in losing Game 5 of their first-round series with the Utah Jazz at Staples Center.

The Clippers now trail the series, three games to two, with Game 6 scheduled for Utah’s Vivint Smart Home Arena on Friday.

“It’s no secret, our backs are against the wall,” (Chris) Paul said, later adding, “They made the winning plays down the stretch and therefore, we lose.”
