  • Assists per game: 22.2 (10th)

What to watch for:

  • Utah PG Deron Williams leads the team with 21.7 PPG and 9.5 APG. The real concern will be rebounds. C Al Jefferson leads the team with 8.8 RPG and is 3rd with 16.7 PPG. PF Paul Milsap is 2nd on the team with 17.1 PPG and 7.9 RPG.
  • Lakers SG Kobe Bryant leads the team with 25 PPG and 4.8 APG. PF Pau Gasol is 2nd with 18.6 PPG and leads the team with 10.6 RPG. PF Lamar Odom has had a huge impact off the bench. He is 3rd with 15.6 PPG and is 2nd with 9.6 RPG.

This basketball pick is made tough by how bad the Jazz have played in their last 4 games. All 4 games were on the road, and all came by 7.5 points or more. They tend to play the Lakers tough and did beat them at home earlier this year. This was before the Lakers had Andrew Bynum back in full effect. This game will be determined by rebounding. The Jazz have struggled while the Lakers have arguably the best rebounding big men in the game.
