Match preview: Los Angeles Lakers vs Utah Jazz

The Los Angeles Lakers will face the Utah Jazz on 31st March 2022(USA), as the race to the playoffs tightens up with less than 10 games left for every team in the regular season.

Lakers are in desperate need of a win here as they currently find themselves out of the play-in tournament which eventually kills any chances of them making it to the playoffs.

The Jazz on the other hand is coming off after a shocking defeat against the Clippers where they blew away a 25-points lead and they will look to bounce back quickly.

The current record of both the teams:

  • The Los Angeles Lakers are currently having a record of 31-44 and are the 10th seed in the West
  • The Utah Jazz are currently having a record of 45-31 and are the 6th seed in the West
