It’s the first of three meetings between the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Lakers and the initial match is an In Season Tournament match.
Both teams last played on Sunday with the Jazz completing a baseball set versus the Suns where they lost both matches despite pushing Phoenix to double overtime on Sunday while the Lakers hung on to beat the Rockets 105-104.
Although the Lakers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 115 victories in 196 matches the teams split their four games last season each winning twice.
Last season the Jazz were the Cinderella team in the league but opponents are no longer surprised by them. Factor in the small tweaks to their roster and Kessler Walker’s absence and it’s resulted in Utah struggling to capture wins this season.
Utah is performing well against the other sub .500 teams with three of their four wins coming against the Trail Blazers and Grizzlies. Ironically, two of those victories were In Season Tournament matches so they’re in the mix to win Group A.
The Jazz are tied for 11th offensively (113.9), and rank 27th defensively (118.7), with a net differential of minus -4.8 ranking 24th overall.
Utah may not be winning much but they perform well against the spread with a 7-6 record.
Jazz Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- Walker Kessler, C (OUT indefinitely—elbow)
Los Angeles Lakers
While the Lakers have a winning record there should be some concern that 38-year-old LeBron James is still the best player and performer on the team.
James delivered 37 points, six rebounds, eight assists and three steals in the recent victory versus the Rockets and is averaging 26.4 points, 8.2 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 1.7 steals this season.
Like their opponent, three of their wins occurred against the Trail Blazers and Grizzlies which begs the question of how good this team is compared to the upper echelon teams.
LA ranks 24th offensively (110.4), and 13th defensively (112.1), with a net differential of minus -1.8 ranking 22nd overall.
In contrast to their opponent the Lakers aren’t a great pick against the spread where they post a 5-9 record through 14 games.
Lakers Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- LeBron James, SF (probable — calf)
- Anthony Davis, PF (probable — hip)
- Jarred Vanderbilt, SF (OUT indefinitely—heel)
- Jalen Hood-Schifino, SG (OUT indefinitely—knee)
- Gabe Vincent, PG (OUT indefinitely —knee)

Free Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Lakers NBA Prediction:
This should be an easy victory for the Lakers but they can’t afford to take Utah for granted as they proved by pushing the Suns into double-overtime on Sunday.
That said, with this being a In Season Tournament game there is more on the line as the 3-0 Lakers can sew up the Group with a victory while the 2-1 Jazz could tie the Lakers with a win and make things more interesting.
I’ll roll with the Lakers winning but the Jazz pushing them to keep the score closer than the spread.
