Monday night’s clash between the Lakers and Jazz is the first meeting of the two this season.

The Lakers started this season with high hopes given the amount of talent they gathered on their off-season roster, but chemistry issues coupled with Covid-related injuries and absences have made this campaign the best of times. cases, turbulent.

They’re currently 21-22, good for third place in the Pacific Division, but they’ll need to find some consistency — and health — if they want to make the playoffs this season. The Grizzlies snapped their season-high four-game winning streak on January 10.

Utah had been lucky to avoid any extended absences related to COVID-19, but when it hit them, it hit them hard with Rudy Gobert, Rudy Gay and Joe Ingles all entering the league’s Health and Safety Protocols.

Given their lack of personnel, the Jazz have struggled to get back to the form they were in before the new year, going just 5-5 in the last ten games. They have lost their foothold as the third seed in the Western Conference to the surging Memphis Grizzlies.

The question is can the Jazz reinvigorate their season against the Lakers?

For the Jazz, this contest comes on the second night of a straight Sunday game at Mile High City against the Nuggets.

Rudy Gobert and Rudy Gay have gone through protocols and played Sunday against the Nuggets, while Carmelo Anthony remains out for the Lakers, but the team has said Anthony Davis will be re-evaluated next week as he appears to recover from his knee. injury.

The Jazz and Lakers play two more times in the regular season, on February 16 at Los Angeles and March 31 at Utah.
