NBA – Jazz brought Lakers down to reality | Playon99 News



Utah Jazz strolled Los Angeles Lakers through the Vivint Smart Home Arena during a game in which there was never any doubt about the winner. Vogel and the Los Angeles Jazz desperately need LeBron James and Davis back from injury or they will be out of the NBA Play-In.

Los Angeles Lakers have become an opportunity for any rival in times of crisis and Utah Jazz are the latest example of this: they arrived with an open wound and five defeats in the backpack, but the Angelinos served as a bandage to plug the bleeding with a balsamic victory by 122-109.

Without LeBron James and Anthony Davis -whom they hope to get back for the next game against the New Orleans Pelicans- Los Angeles Lakers found no answer to stop Donovan Mitchell (29+1+7) and added another defeat -45th this NBA season- that once again takes them out of the Play-In positions in favor of the San Antonio Spurs.

A playoff that seems more and more distant for Frank Vogel’s team, who can’t find a way to make drifting teamwork and for which each game becomes a bigger drama than the previous one.

Against the Utah Jazz, Los Angeles Lakers coach continued to test and put out his 37th different starting five so far in the NBA regular season.

Further evidence of the lack of direction for a Lakers team that is struggling this season and without LeBron and Davis lacks a guiding light.

Mitchell and Rudy Gobert, who finished with a double-double of 25 points and 17 rebounds, took advantage of a wobbly opponent in a game that Utah Jazz dominated from the first minutes and in which only the final relaxation allowed Los Angeles Lakers to make up the score.

A team with no arguments against the depth of the rival squad in which Jordan Clarkson -19 points- and Mike Conley with 18 points, 2 rebounds and 4 assists also shined.

For the Lakers, Dwight Howard had a good game with a double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds, while Russell Westbrook signed 24 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists as the best production in Los Angeles.

This game allowed the Utah Jazz to stay two games behind the Golden State Warriors in the fight for the fourth place in the Western Conference, the last one to give at least a home field advantage in the NBA Playoffs.
