It's a big game tonight, as the Utah Jazz will attempt to do that one thing that they have not yet done so far this season -- win three games in a row. Back in December they had two opportunities to do it, but failed. The first was a win @ Miami, then @ Orlando, only to lose @ Charlotte. Then right after that game they won @ Memphis, beat Philly, then lost to the Clippers. Late in January they had a shot at this, after winning @ Milwaukee, then beating the Nets at home -- only to lose to the Celtics at home after a day of rest. Before the All-Star Break in February the Jazz had a chance of getting this three game streak monkey off of their backs after beating the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans, only to fall to the Dallas Mavericks. Will tonight be the night? The Jazz beat the Portland Trail Blazers and the San Antonio Spurs -- the Los Angeles Lakers have to give way, right?
Lakers M*A*S*H Unit:

You have to win tonight. Byron Scott is going to start Jordan Clarkson, Wayne Ellington, Carlos Boozer, Ryan Kelly, and Robert Sacre.
Byron Scott said he'll stick with same starters in Utah that he used to beat Celtics. So four guys you've never heard of and Carlos Boozer.— Bill Oram (@billoram) February 25, 2015
I don't even need to write more of a preview than this. If the Jazz lose tonight many people gonna be mad.
And people say that Jazz fans are too critical of their own team . . .
This has officially become a trap game.
Be on your best guard Dante Exum, Joe Ingles, Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, and Rudy Gobert!
