(8-10) Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Lakers (10-7)
It’s a full slate of games across the NBA on Black Friday. In this game the Utah Jazz make the trip to Staples Center to take on the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Jazz have won the last seven games played between the two teams.
This doesn’t seem like the same Utah Jazz as the last couple years and for some reason they are really struggling this year.
They come into this game having won two games in a row, and four of the last five games and most of the games really haven’t been close.
The biggest issue for the Jazz is their defense hasn’t been great. On the season they are giving up 109 points per game and although that doesn’t seem like a ton, it’s something they leaned on the last few years that has let them down this year.
Los Angeles Lakers
On the other side of this matchup is the Los Angeles Lakers who have been playing a lot better as of late, and come into this game having lost eight of their last ten games.
In their last game against the Cavs in LeBron’s return to Cleveland they tried everything to lose the game, but they made a run late to come out ahead 109-105.
For the Lakers it’s all about the pace and offense averaging 116.2 points per game. The defense really struggled at the beginning of the season, but they are playing a lot better as of late.
In this game the offense needs to try and push the pace. If they can get this into a shootout it should end well for the Lakers.
