Early glimpses of the schedule leaking out. Looks like the Jazz will be playing the Lakers in LA...


Early glimpses of the schedule leaking out. Looks like the Jazz will be playing the Lakers in LA on December 27th. That would be a relative late start for the Jazz given that there are five games tipping off on the 25th with another set to start on the 26th. It could also mean that the Jazz will be playing their second game of a back to back or perhaps in the middle of a B2B2B themselves? They'll get another crack at LA early after beating the Lakers in LA late last season for the first time in a decade. More from LA Times I know you're all sobbing for the Lakers right now. If you want the conspiracy, then of course you have to mention how this favors the Lakers because they won't have to have a B2B2B down the stretch to break their old, weary, legs.
