Utah once again continues to struggle playing on the road this season as the team has just a 3-9 straight up record. The drop off on the road for the Jazz has been their play on the defensive end of the court as they allow 47% shooting to their opponents. Their three road wins have come against three of the worst teams in basketball in Toronto, Washington and New Orleans. The Jazz have lost a lot of their road games this year by huge margins. They travel to face the Lakers with a two game win streak with home wins against bad teams in Toronto and the Orlando Magic. The LA Lakers have lost three of their past four games. They last played on Friday night and drop a 114-108 road decision to the Oklahoma City Thunder as a +7 ½ point underdog. The game was not that close as LA scored some late three pointers to make the final score seem a bit closer. Pau Gasol has missed the past three games for the Lakers as the big man is suffering knee tendinitis. He is listed a doubtful for tonight’s game. Trade rumors have been swirling around with a possible Ricky Rubio and Pau Gasol tandem with the Minnesota Timberwolves being discussed. In Gasol’s absence the Lakers defense has suffered as they have allowed 111 points in the three defeats.
