Although they lost to the Raptors they will not have a lot of time to reflect as they take on the Utah Jazz on Monday night. The Jazz are struggling as well, but this game is important for these two teams.

The Lakers may not be fully manned for Monday.


Lakers losing motivation?

The Lakers really don’t have much to play for. They are a lock to get the top seed in the west and they need to keep all of their moving parts healthy heading into the playoffs. LeBron had a double-double against the Raptors, but the Lakers shot a season-low 35.4% from the field. This team is still trying to figure it out and they are not in a hurry. Of course the Lakers always struggle against the Raptors.

What goes down must go up

We may just be two games in, but the Jazz played the worst game of the restart, maybe the year, in the last outing against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Jazz were slow to react, played slow off the dribble and did not play defense. The players and the coaches took notice and made comments after the game. Unlike the Lakers, the Jazz cannot afford to go into the playoffs playing poorly. Without Bojan Bogdanovic in the lineup, the Jazz did not have the muscle to keep up with the Thunder.

The Lakers are going through the motions. There is no doubt that the Jazz are better with Bogdanovic, but they will play better in this game whether he plays or not. Anothony Davis and LeBron James seem to be fading late in the game an indication that the team is saving them for the playoffs. The Jazz will be focused and the Lakers are still trying to figure things out.
