It'll be the road-weary
vs the star-studded
On Sunday, the Lakers earned their first win of the season in a 108-79 blowout against the Pistons at Staples Center.
Monday in Memphis, the Jazz got off to a nice start, but then proceeded to blow a lead in the second quarter and get outscored by 9 in the 3rd quarter en route to a 103-94 loss to cap a winless 3-game road trip.
Metta World Peace
Key Bench Players
Burks for the 2nd straight game?
Earl Watson is rehabbing his knee (still). Steve Nash is out for the Lakers with a broken fibula.
This will be the Lakers' only regular season appearance in Salt Lake City....The teams split the season series 2-2 last year, with each team winning once in Salt Lake City and once in Los Angeles...Mike Brown is said to be on the hot seat as the Lakers seek to implement the Princeton offense...
If you can, go to the game and root for the Jazz. There will undoubtedly be plenty of Lakers fans there. The Jazz need to win so that those Lakers fans go home quiet:
Because seriously, 99% of the Lakers "fan" base are among the most obnoxious people on the planet. FACT.
