The Utah Jazz just *have* to beat the Los Angeles Lakers tonight. Wins do not come often against this club, and now is the time to strike. The Lakers are very hurt right now, and the Jazz defense has really turned it on of late. Our guys have beaten a lot of good clubs this season, but in order to take the next step they need to make sure not to falter against the bad ones.

Right now few clubs are worse than the Lakers.

Starters:

Man, that's the starting five Byron Scott used in their win against the Boston Celtics, and former Tribjazz / current OC Register beat writer tweets:

Crazy, man. Speaking of tweets, from earlier today:

Yeah, not as many people hate Kobe Bryant as I thought. Kobe is out. As is Steve Nash, Ronnie Price, Julius Randle, and Nick Young. The Jazz are without Alec Burks, and that's it. Let's put them to bed early, Jazz.

GO JAZZ GO!
