The Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

ABOUT THE LAKERS (16-33): The Los Angeles starters totaled just 27 points — 15 by shooting guard Nick Young — in the loss to Portland while backup guards Lou Williams (31) and Jordan Clarkson (22) combined for 53. Clarkson played 35 minutes against the Trail Blazers and will continue to receive extensive minutes while starting point guard D’Angelo Russell is sidelined with knee and calf injuries. Williams matched his season high of six 3-pointers against Portland and is averaging 24.6 points over the past five games.

ABOUT THE JAZZ (29-18):
Standout small forward Gordon Hayward has shot less than 37 percent from the field in four of the past five games and had one of his worst performances of the seasons against the Nuggets. Hayward scored nine points on 2-of-10 shooting, marking just the second time he finished in single digits in the past two-plus months. “He had a bad game,” Snyder said afterward. “He’s had a lot of really good games. I’m telling everybody not to talk about fatigue, but some of it was he has to get his juice back. That’s hard to do if you don’t have off-days; you just have to grind.”

Oddsmakers currently have the Jazz listed as 13½-point favorites versus the Lakers, while the game’s total is sitting at 201½.

The Jazz were a 103-93 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Nuggets. They failed to cover the +1.5-point spread as underdogs, while the total score (196) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Los Angeles lost its last outing, a 105-98 result against the Trail Blazers on January 25. The Lakers covered in that game as a +8-point underdog, while the 203 combined points took the game UNDER the total.
