What you need to know about the Lakers

It's never fun to lose, and it's even less fun to lose 133-96, which was the final score in Los Angeles' tilt against the Denver Nuggets this past Saturday. The Lakers were down 102-79 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. The top scorer for Los Angeles was small forward LeBron James (25 points).

The Lakers have yet to truly gel this season. The absence of Anthony Davis hasn't helped the situation, but James is once again playing at an extremely high level, averaging 28.9 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 6.5 assists per game. Los Angeles is 17-25 against the spread in 2021-22.

What you need to know about the Jazz

Meanwhile, Utah made easy work of Denver on Sunday and carried off a 125-102 victory. The Jazz can attribute much of their success to shooting guard Donovan Mitchell, who had 31 points along with five rebounds, and center Rudy Gobert, who posted a double-double on 19 boards and 18 points.

The Jazz still have a chance to make a run at the top seed in the Western Conference. As it stands, they are third in the standings, but they have the ability to get hot and rattle off lengthy winning streaks. Mitchell and Gobert are both playing at an All-Star level, and give Utah one of the NBA's premier inside-outside combinations. The Jazz are 19-23 against the spread this season.
