The Los Angeles Lakers and Utah Jazz meet Thursday in NBA action at the Vivint Arena. The Los Angeles Lakers need a win after losing 13 of their last 17 games. The Utah Jazz look to snap a five-game losing streak.
The Los Angeles Lakers are averaging 111.6 points on 46.8 percent shooting and allowing 114.3 points on 46.6 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 30.1 points and 8.2 rebounds, while Anthony Davis is averaging 23.1 points and 9.7 rebounds. Russell Westbrook is the third double-digit scorer and Malik Monk is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Los Angeles Lakers are shooting 35.1 percent from beyond the arc and 72.7 percent from the free throw line. The Los Angeles Lakers are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game.
The Utah Jazz are averaging 113.3 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 107.6 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Donovan Mitchell is averaging 26 points and 5.4 assists, while Bojan Bogdanovic is averaging 18.1 points and 4.3 rebounds. Jordan Clarkson is the third double-digit scorer and Rudy Gobert is grabbing 14.6 rebounds. The Utah Jazz are shooting 36.3 percent from beyond the arc and 77.7 percent from the free throw line. The Utah Jazz are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.1 rebounds per game.
The Lakers are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games and 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Jazz are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Lakers last 6 overall. The under is 10-4-1 in Jazz last 15 overall. The Lakers are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.
I'm not running to the window to back the Los Angeles Lakers in any shape or form, especially with AD and LeBron expected to miss another contest. The Lakers look like a team that's ready for the season to end. However, with that said, the Utah Jazz are riding a five-game losing streak, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 12.4 points while allowing 52.3 percent shooting from the field. The Jazz in no way are a team I'm looking to lay double-digit chalk with. It's the points or pass for me.
