LAL vs UTA Dream11 NBA Team Prediction – Fantasy Team News
Los Angeles Lakers vs Utah Jazz

Match Timing: November 24, 2018, @ 09:00 AM IST
NBA Regular Season
Venue – Staples Center, Los Angeles
Capacity- 21,000


Los Angeles Lakers will aim to keep their magnificent recent record intact when they take on a struggling Utah Jazz side in an NBA match at Staples Center, in Los Angeles on Saturday morning (IST).

Los Angeles Lakers:

Finally, LeBron James was given a soaring reception by Cleveland Cavaliers fans he truly deserves. The Quicken Loans Arena erupted into a giant roaring pit when LeBron James’ name was announced. However, Cleveland Cavaliers were defeated by Los Angeles Lakers 109-105 with James playing the chief architect in their downfall, scoring 32 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists in his first game on the court where he spent 11 successful seasons.

Back in 2010, the Cavs couldn’t buy the prospect of James playing against his own city. The hatred was so much that he was presented as a villain, and was booed everytime he had the ball in his hand as a Miami Heat player.

But that was the time when LeBron was blooming into a true superstar, and still trying to know his full potential. That was the time when Cleveland could only imagine about winning an NBA championship and would later label it only as a hypothetical assumption.

But in 2014, a move saw everything changing when James joined Cavaliers on a free agency. And as they say, the rest is history.

The win was Lakers’ 8th in the last 10 games, and the Showtime are now 7th in the table, only two wins away from table-topper Memphis Grizzlies who are with a 12-5 record as of now.

Utah Jazz:

Utah Jazz, on the other hand, are seeing the other side of the form this season. For them, the time has certainly changed for the worst.

For a team which finished at fifth in the Western Conference last season, and a team which was earmarked as one of the real contenders for the playoffs, 8-10 record and a 13 place position is not a satisfactory return.

Against Sacramento Kings, they lost the game 110-119 at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Well, it’s anything but a ‘smart home arena’ as Jazz are reduced to 2-5 in home games this season. Now they have lost the last two and ended with 4-6 in the last 10 matches.

Though the season is still new and it’s still too early to make any prediction about the form of the teams, Utah must improve to come away unscathed from a brutal November schedule where they will be out on the road in five of their next seven matches.

Regular Season Record-
Los Angeles Lakers: W-10, L-7
Utah Jazz: W-8, L-10

Players to watch out for:

Los Angeles Lakers:

LeBron James – Not even for a moment you should look beyond LeBron James as far as selecting a superstar to double up points in your NBA fantasy team.
The four-time NBA MVP is playing at a different level at this moment, scored 175 points in the last five games at 35 points per game. It’s not just the points, but the 33-year-old is leading every department for Lakers this year.

Kyle Kuzma – With LeBron firing on extra cylinders, there is little or no pressure on Cavaliers players as of now. Kuzma, however, should be in your team as he could be a good value for your points.

Utah Jazz:

Donovan Mitchell – The 22-year-old is going for 21.6 points per game this season, by far the best Jazz player this season.

Rudy Gobert – One of the best players in picking up the second balls, the 26-year-old remains an indispensable part of this Utah squad. The 2013 1st round pick regularly scores in the double digits.

Los Angeles Lakers:

Injured – Once again, Rajon Rondo will the match due to the hand injury.

Questionable – Meanwhile, Josh Hart was listed as questionable ahead of the match against Cleveland Cavaliers but played. His situation remains the same and will be assessed ahead of the match.

Suspended – None
