Shootaround Report: Lakers Hit The Road To Take On The Jazz
As last night’s final home game came to a close, the Lakers endured a 102-90 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. Refusing to give up on this season, the team will head to Utah to take on the Jazz in a match-up of the two worst records in the Western Conference.
The last time the two teams faced each other, the Jazz picked up a 96-79 road win despite a 25 point, 14 rebound performance from Chris Kaman.
The Lakers had only nine healthy players for that game, and the Jazz used dominant efforts in the second and fourth quarters to come back from an early 15 point deficit.
Though Chris Kaman, went through limited activities in practice on Saturday, he will not play tonight and is unlikely to play again this season. Steve Nash is also out, likely for the rest of the season, leaving the Lakers, once again, with only nine players tonight.
