The Lakers are in sixth place in the Western Conference standings. In 14 games they suffered six defeats. The Lakers lost five of their six road games. At home they lost to the fast Sacramento Kings (110:125).
Los Angeles is in good shape for the next game. In the last six games of the NBA regular season, they only lost to the Sacramento Kings. Darwin Ham’s team twice beat Phoenix (122:119), Portland (116:110 and 107:95), Memphis (134:107) and Houston (105:104).
The most interesting thing is the last game. The most productive player of the match was the four-time NBA champion and leader of the Lakers, LeBron James. He scored 37 points, grabbed six rebounds and also dished out eight assists. Despite his age, the 38-year-old forward continues to impress with his brilliant performances and benefit the team.
James has appeared in 13 games this season. On average per game he scores 26.4 points, makes 8.2 rebounds and gives 6.5 assists. Anthony Davis helps LeBron well. The center back had a poor performance only in the meeting with Sacramento. In the post-match interview he admitted that he played like hell.

The Utah Jazz do not have star basketball players like LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Led by Quin Snyder, the Salt Lake City team was a regular in the NBA playoffs. However, before last season, the 57-year-old coach left the club. His place was taken by the much less experienced Will Hardy.
At first everything went well for the new coach, but after a brilliant start to the season, there was a rapid decline that continues to this day. In 13 games of the current NBA regular season, the Jazz only managed four wins. Furthermore, three out of four are at home.
Utah defeated Memphis on the road, but the game was remembered not so much for the final result as for the scandal. The fact is that the rival’s protagonist, Jaren Jackson Jr., was expelled for communicating with the judges. Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins criticized the referees after the game.
Jenkins noted that the basketball player was “on fire” all night. The coach emphasized: as soon as his team began to recover, the elimination occurred. Taylor said the referees showed a complete lack of respect toward Memphis. According to the coach, it was one of the worst organized games he has ever seen.
Even Kai Havertz played as a left back:

In this situation, Los Angeles seems the clear favorite in the next game. You can bet on his victory with a handicap (-7.5) in betting houses with odds of 1.90. The last face-to-face meeting ended exactly like this. Since then, nothing has changed for the better for the Salt Lake City club.
Interestingly, in a recent interview, LeBron James complained about not feeling well. He admitted that he was weakened by several injuries and was not in the best shape he was. However, at the same time, the four-time NBA champion noted that the championship gave him a bit of a boost. The star striker still believes that he can play for the same club as his son Bronny.
Prediction and bet on the NBA Los Angeles Lakers – Utah Jazz match November 22, 2023
The Lakers have a better lineup and better results. They have the added advantage that the meeting will take place in Los Angeles. In the last direct confrontation, Darwin Ham’s team confidently defeated the Jazz. Most likely it will be the same this time. After the departure of Quin Snyder, the Salt Lake City team became one of the main outsiders in the league.
Tender: victory for the Los Angeles Lakers with a handicap (-7.5) for 1.90.
