Los Angeles Lakers will play against Utah Jazz in the regular season of the NBA and on our site, you can read free NBA expert picks. The game is on Wednesday, December 4, at 9:00 PM ET and the place is Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City, Utah.
Los Angeles Lakers 17-3 are 1st in the NBA Western Conference. However, Frank Vogel’s team lost their latest game at home from Dallas Mavericks 100-114. After leading at the halftime, L.A. Lakers lost the 3rd quarter 35-17 and this was the key for losing the clash. Of course, Luka Dončić lead Mavericks with 27 points, 10 assists and 9 rebounds for almost 33 minutes on the court. Anthony Davis also finished with 27 points and LeBron James added 25 points but the rest of the team didn’t help at all as the 3rd highest scoring player was Alex Caruso with only 10 points. Before that match Lakers won 10 games in a row as they only lost since the beginning of the season from Los Angeles Clippers 102-112 in their first game and from Toronto Raptors 104-113.
Utah Jazz 12-9 are 6th in the NBA Western Conference. Jazz played their latest four matches away from home and lost 3 of them. Their latest game was on Sunday against Toronto Raptors and they lost it 110-130. In that match 8 Raptors players finished with 10 or more points and the highest scoring player that night was Pascal Siakam with 35 points. Their only victory in that series as guests was against Memphis Grizzlies 103-94 and they can thank Bojan Bogdanović who scored 33 points against Grizzlies for less than 35 minutes. Their other two loses away from home were against Milwaukee Bucks 118-122 and Indiana Pacers 102-121.
These teams already played once this season and Lakers won that match 86-95. The team from Los Angeles won their latest 8 games away from home but on the other hand Jazz are 8-1 at home as only Minnesota Timberwolves beat them in Utah so far. The first match between Lakers and Jazz was low scoring but I expect a lot of points from both teams in the upcoming clash in Salt Lake as both teams got a few days to rest.
