The Los Angeles Lakers lost their third game of the season last night to the Utah Jazz, 102-96.   The Jazz’s bench played exceptional, and the Lakers could not make a basket down the stretch of the game.  However, perhaps the biggest factor in the Lakers’ loss was the shot-clock malfunction late in the game.  The shot-clock would not properly reset to 24 seconds after the ball would hit the rim, and the malfunction ruined the Lakers’ momentum.  Head Coach Phil Jackson was disgusted with the issue, and blamed the team’s stalled offense on the shot-clock operator.
