Jazz-Lakers Preview

The Lakers will be even more short-handed for Friday night's rematch as they attempt to avoid their longest losing streak in seven seasons.

Utah (11-24) earned its fifth win in the last six meetings with the Lakers on Derrick Favors' putback dunk with 2.1 seconds left last Friday. The 105-103 victory was also among the Jazz's seven in the last 12 games.

Utah once again won't have to face Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Steve Blake in this game. Pau Gasol is expected play after sitting out last week's matchup because of a respiratory infection, but the Lakers likely won't have two players who were in that game.

Jordan Farmar is expected to miss the next month after tearing his left hamstring for the second time this season, and Xavier Henry is out for at least a week because of an ailing right knee. Kendall Marshall, signed out of the D-League on Dec. 20, remains the only healthy point guard.

Los Angeles (13-19) was beaten 94-79 by the team with the worst record in the NBA, Milwaukee, on Tuesday. Nick Young had 25 points and Gasol matched that in his return from illness, but Marshall was the only other player in double figures during a 35.8 percent shooting performance.

"We are down at the bottom," said coach Mike D'Antoni, who used his eighth different starting lineup in as many games and 17th in 32 contests. "The injuries have torn everybody up, but we have to band together and figure it out. I thought Pau played hard, though he was rusty at first. He didn't look good in the first quarter, but then he picked it up."

Only guards we have left.


Just wait another 2 or 3 weeks. I'm sure at least one of them will get injured.
