LeBron James picked up a double-double with 20 points and 10 rebounds in the loss, but it’s a game that the Lakers will be happy to forget. The team as a whole shot a dismal 35.4% from the field and went just 10-for-40 (25%) on three-point attempts.
Despite the loss, Los Angeles still has a 5.5-game lead over the L..A Clippers for the top spot in the Western Conference. The Lakers are 11-2 SU and 8-4-1 ATS in their last 13 games against Western Conference foes per the OddsShark NBA Database.

But in the last 19 games before the regular season was postponed, the Jazz went just 9-10 SU and 5-14 ATS. The Jazz are 1-1 SU and ATS through the first two games since action has resumed and are hoping to find their mid-season form again in time for this year’s postseason run.
Monday night’s total is set at 217.5 points at sports betting sites. The UNDER is 8-2 in Los Angeles’ last 10 games including a current stretch of five straight UNDER results.
The Jazz made some big moves last offseason in the hopes that they could help Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert turn this group into a championship contender. With only a few games remaining before the playoffs begin, Utah will likely bring its best on Monday as it tries to show it can hang with a team of the Lakers’ caliber.
