  • Los Angeles Lakers’ are coming off a 102-84 wire to wire victory over the Utah Jazz on Friday Night. The Lakers were able to sustain their energy throughout the game and keep the Jazz at bay.

Dwight Howard missed the last match up vs. the Thunder.

  • Kevin Durant, as he has against much of the league, has killed the Lakers this season. Durant is averaging 39 and shooting 59 % from the field in the two games against the Lakers.
