The Lakers are having not such great results with LeBron James out of the lineup. Shocker!. They have won two straight though.
Utah is playing much better these days and is at .500 and looking to launch from there. This should be a fun game.
Los Angeles Lakers
It looks like the King is still going to be out a little longer for the Lakers. Per the intro they have won their last two but predicting their performance has been tricky.
The biggest beneficiary of LeBron’s absence has been Kyle Kuzma. He scored a season high 41 points in thelr last game and amazingly he did that in less than 30 minutes of court time.
The injury to James and that to veteran PG Rajon Rondo has meant that Lonzo Ball has also had to step up. The scoring looks like it is always going to be up and down as it was in the last game when he had just 5 point but with 11 assists. he can be useful under the right circumstances.
Michael Beasley has been hurt most of the season but can still ball at times. He has scored in double-figures in back to back to back games and is still as crafty as ever.
Jevale McGee mans the middle but he is not much of a threat on offense. That could make things tougher for the rest of the Lakers as he will not force Rudy Gobert to work much.
Utah has won three of four and is looking ever more relevant in the Western Conference. A win here would help them every which way.
The are getting knicked by the injury bug though and it looks like they will be without a couple of guys on the perimeter in Ricky Rubio and Dante Exum. Beating Orlando is one thin .
Obviously the Lakers are missing key personnel too but the Jazz seem to be ahead because they have their best two players in Gobert and Donovan Mitchell on the floor. This is likely a tight game. .

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
Utah should be favoured at home in this one. Probably not by a ton though.
I am going to side with the home team. Utah can be a tough spot to play and they are without their top dog.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Lakers ATS
Look for a game that is decided late. Hopefully we don’t have to give away too many points.
