Utah Jazz 107 - Los Angeles Lakers 101 Game Recap

Utah Jazz 107 - Los Angeles Lakers 101 Game Recap

No Tacos for home fans The Utah Jazz (13-9) defeated the Los Angeles Lakers (10-13) by the close margin of 107-101. This game wasn’t ALWAYS this close, in fact after a 26-26 first quarter up until the middle of the fourth it was All That Jazz. The good guys won the second quarter by +4 and the third by +11. But LA clamped down on defense in the fourth, and their 27-18 final frame made what was looking like another road blowout win for Utah fade away. Both teams were missing key players — the Lakers were without D’Angelo Russell, Nick Young, Larry Nance Jr., and Jose Calderon (from the...

Lakers News: Jose Calderon out 2-4 weeks with hamstring strain

Lakers News: Jose Calderon out 2-4 weeks with hamstring strain

So... Do you know any point guards? Okay, this is just getting comical. The two most dangerous jobs in sports, apparently, are “Los Angeles Lakers Point Guard” and “Minnesota Vikings Offensive Lineman”. According the the Lakers, an MRI showed a hamstring strain serious enough to declare Jose Calderon out for at least two weeks and up to a month. This was always the risk when D’Angelo Russell received his PRP treatment, forcing Calderon into a role his body simply might not have been ready for at this stage of his career. Russell’s knee procedure was supposed to keep him out...

The Lakers aren’t losing sight of positive developments, even amid losses

Los Angeles is focused on the right things as they move forward in their rebuild. The Los Angeles Lakers went 1-3 on a ridiculous four games in five nights road trip. Lakers head coach Luke Walton didn’t think the schedule made any sense, and the team’s record showed why, especially when they dropped the final two games due to a combination of travel, fatigue, and injuries building up. The team had every reason to quit. By the end of the trip, they were missing D’Angelo Russell, Larry Nance, Jr., Nick Young, and Jose Calderon. Julius Randle was dealing with an ailing hip, and the...

Lakers Podcast: Why the Lakers’ bench is one of the best units in the entire NBA

Plus, viewer questions and more from the team’s win over Atlanta. The Los Angeles Lakers’ bench was amazing again in the team’s 109-94 win over the Atlanta Hawks. Luke Walton inserted Jose Calderon and Thomas Robinson into the starting lineup to keep his reserve group of Brandon Ingram, Larry Nance, Jr., Jordan Clarkson, Lou Williams, and Tarik Black together, and they rewarded him by outscoring the Hawks at a rate that would have translated to 58.6 points per 100 possessions. Host Harrison Faigen was joined by Silver Screen and Roll writer Gary Kester to discuss why that group has...
