The Los Angeles Lakers are gearing up for a road trip as they head into Utah to take on the Jazz. The Utah Jazz have been a bit soft has they have lost two straight games heading into this matchup.
Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles has another opportunity to beat an Eastern conference playoff team from last year at home. The Lakers took care of the Wizards Wednesday night as Lonzo Ball had 10 assists and Brandon Ingram dropped 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Lakers.
It’s going to be a challenge as the Jazz are playing some great offense, while the Lakers defense has been shaky so far.
Los Angeles wants to push the pace, but that could play right into the Jazzs’ game plan. Utah has adopted a spread attack, which the Lakers will struggle to contain. The Lakers offense will also be challenged as the Jazz tend to make things difficult for opponents.
This is a huge away game for Los Angeles as they are hoping to claim that last spot in the playoffs. Lonzo and company have been able to show fight in their first four games so far this season. Which is necessary for this team to do well in the future.
Besides their game in Utah on Saturday, Los Angeles will also be on no rest as they will be in Los Angeles against the Raptors on Friday night.
For the second night in a row, the Utah Jazz got blown out on the road Wednesday, this time suffering a 97-88 loss to the Phoenix Suns
The turning point: After falling down by 17 in the second quarter, the Jazz got to within seven at halftime only to get down by 18 in third quarter, and they couldn’t rally.
The Jazz committed 24 turnovers compared to 16 for the Suns. Phoenix scored 27 points off Utah turnovers. The Jazz made just six of their 25 3-point attempts. Utah scored just nine bench points compared to 38 for the Suns.
The Suns were locked in from the start. They allowed just 13 first-quarter points, the fewest they have all season. They forced 24 Utah turnovers and outrebounded the Jazz 55-44. Their effort was symbolized in one first-quarter possession, when Devin Booker missed a 17-foot jump shot but raced down the floor to block Joe Ingles’ layup attempt from behind
Perhaps the only true positive from this game is the fact that it was just one game out of a long 82-game season.
And while the Jazz have now fallen below .500, if they can win on Saturday against the Lakers, they’ll rise to 3-3, which is exactly the start they got off to last season. So perhaps that is somewhat reassuring in and of itself.
