Jazz Vs. Lakers Game Thread -- Raja Bell didn't even make the trip to see Kobe Bryant, again

Game 45: Utah Jazz (22-22, Road: 5-16) @ Los Angeles Lakers (28-16, Home: 19-2)

Jazz at the Lakers. The first US city I ever lived in was LA, so this rivalry (though one-sided at times) is always something I watch for. Should be a fun night. We all want to see if Derrick Favors has it in him, for yet another strong game. Tonight he plays against Andrew Bynum, so this will be a good challenge -- no one on the Warriors is like Bynum. Except Bogut, and then only in injury history. (Cheap shot alert) Let's try to bring the Lakers down, after all, we're almost the 5th best team in the conference (and division).

Liner Notes:

  • Al Jefferson (UTA) is still with his family, after his grandmother's passing
  • Raja Bell (UTA) is still out with an adductor strain
  • Earl Watson (UTA) is still out with a sprained left ankle
  • Christian Eyenga (LAL) is out with a lacerated left toe (ouch!)
  • LA has only lost twice at home all year, if you didn't notice
  • Two times
  • Two
  • Wow.
