The Utah Jazz will try to win 30 games once again, missing out the first two nights against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Denver Nuggets? Third time is the charm? Maybe. They will be facing off against the Los Angeles Lakers - a team that has also lost two games in a row. LAL is 3-7 in their last 10 games and very interested in keeping their Top 3 protected lotto pick. They have a reason to want to lose. Utah has a million reasons to want to win. Will tonight work out in the Jazz' favor?
