Prediction

The Lakers are having a dissapointment season and Lebron is still out for this game. They're 6-14 playing without him this season. Utah have struggled lately and blew an 25 pts lead in their last game vs Clippers, however the offense looked good and returning home should be huge boost. Take the Jazz to cover.
