The Los Angeles Lakers look to bounce back from a loss when playing the Utah Jazz on Monday. The Lakers lost to the Toronto Raptors 107-92 on Saturday. The Lakers were outscored 66-48 in the second half. LeBron James led the Lakers in the loss with 20 points and 10 rebounds but Anthony Davis scored only 14 points after scoring 34 on Thursday against the Clippers.

Anthony Davis is leading the Lakers in scoring and rebounding with averages of 26.6 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. LeBron James is the second-leading scorer and leader in assists with averages of 25.5 points and 10.5 assists per game. The only other player for the Lakers averaging double figures in scoring is Kyle Kuzma with an average of 12.6 points per game.

Utah is 1-1 in its seeding games, following a 110-94 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday. Utah trailed at halftime 66-42 and never threatened during the second half.  The loss cut Utah’s lead to a half-game over Oklahoma City for fourth place in the Western Conference standings. Donovan Mitchell scored 13 points to lead the Jazz in the loss.

Donovan Mitchell is leading Utah in scoring with an average of 24.0 points per game, while Rudy Gobert is the leading rebounder with an average of 13.6 points per game.

Los Angeles Lakers -6

I would hate to be the Utah Jazz facing the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday. The Lakers are coming off a very poor performance against the Toronto Raptors. Anthony Davis was held to just 14 points after scoring 34 two days earlier against the LA Clippers. The Lakers have covered the number in five of their last six head-to-head with Utah, while Utah has failed to cover the number in nine of its last 12 overall. Final Score Prediction, Los Angeles Lakers win and cover ATS 116-100.
