Utah comes into this game tied for the eight-seed in the western conference, but their faith will be out of their hands. The Houston Rockets are holding the eight-spot as well, but have the crucial tiebreaker over the Jazz. The Jazz have actually lost three of their past four headed into this game and that’s not the type of thing you can do in the midst of a playoff hunt. The offense has really hurt this club, as they rank 28th in both scoring and assists per contests.
Although the Lakers are having one of their worst seasons in franchise history, this trivial game will be one of the most important ones in years for Los Angeles fans. This is the last game of Kobe Bryant’s career and the energy in the Staples Center should be out of control. That alone should make this a exceptional game, as the Lakers will have plenty of motivation in what would normally be a throw-in-the-towel match-up.
With that in mind, the Jazz should still be a sizable favorite, as their post-season lives are on the line and the Lakers are still leaving empty-handed after this.
