Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Lakers Predictions & Tips


Utah should become the latest team to capitalise on Los Angeles’ injury problems.

The Lakers have managed to record a few wins without Anthony Davis & LeBron James.

They have not faced a team as good as Utah in this run though.

The Jazz should stay on a roll, but the absence of Donovan Mitchell means Utah are unlikely to run away with this.

  • Utah Jazz are 13-3 in their last 16 games
  • Utah Jazz beat Los Angeles Lakers 114-89 earlier this season
  • Utah Jazz’s Rudy Gobert leads the league in Defensive Rebounds & Total Rebounds
  • Los Angeles Lakers will be without two of their top-three rebounders
  • Los Angeles Lakers are 6-9 while LeBron James & Anthony Davis have been out

Head To Head


  • Los Angeles Lakers lead the all-time series 127-91
  • Los Angeles Lakers lead the regular season series 110-77
  • Utah Jazz won the previous meeting this season

Utah Jazz Form & Team News


Utah’s road form is not as dominant as their home form, but overall they are in good shape right now.

The Jazz are 13-3 in their last 16 games.

The big news is Donovan Mitchell will miss this game after injuring his ankle.

He joins Udoka Azubuike (ankle) on the sidelines, but Jordan Clarkson (ankle) and Derrick Favors (knee) could feature.

Los Angeles Lakers Form & Team News


Los Angeles have not been a completely lame duck without their two star man.

The Lakers have managed a handful of wins to stay in the playoff places, but they have lost nine times with LeBron James & Anthony Davis.

James (ankle) and Davis (Achilles) will be missing again here, as will Jared Dudley (knee).

Andre Drummond (toe) and Markieff Morris (ankle) could return though after sitting out Thursday.
