www.FranchiseSportsMedia.com

Los Angeles Lakers (9-6) | Utah Jazz (4-10)

 

It was the Lakers vs Jazz at Crypyo.com Arena for another NBA In-Season Tournament game, and the Lakers blew Utah out 131-97.

The Lakers vs Jazz played in L.A. on Tuesday.

The Los Angeles Lakers hosted the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night in the final group play game of the NBA In-Season Tournament.

The Lakers would clinch their group and advance to the quarterfinals with a win, and they did precisely that by destroying the Jazz 131-97. Because L.A. was a perfect 4-0 in group play, they will be one of the top two seeds in the West, which means they will be at home for their quarterfinal game before the tournament shifts to Las Vegas for the semifinals and finals.

LeBron James kicked off the scoring in this one, with D’Angelo Russell finding him for an easy bucket. James had it going early with a pair of free throws and a triple to give the Lakers an early 11-7 lead. The 3-pointer brought LeBron across the 39,000-point threshold, becoming the first player in league history to do so.

 

The Los Angeles Lakers were punishing the Utah Jazz down low early as Anthony Davis, Christian Wood, and Taurean Prince finished easy layups to extend the lead to double digits at 24-11.

Davis led the way with 11 points and nine rebounds in the first quarter alone, and Austin Reaves drilled a late triple to give L.A. a 32-17 lead going into the second quarter. Lakers starting wing Cam Reddish was ruled out for the rest of the night after the first quarter due to groin soreness, so Max Christie got some minutes in his absence.

The Jazz went on a little run to begin the second, returning their deficit to double digits. The Lakers responded from there, though, as Davis continued to push them down low while Russell connected from deep to get the lead back to 16 and force a Utah timeout.

With the Jazz struggling to keep the Lakers out of the paint and off the free throw line, resulting in a 62-41 halftime lead for L.A.

Lakers vs Jazz 3rd Quarter:

It was the start of the Lakers vs Jazz third quarter. 

The Jazz couldn’t make any 3-pointers in the first half, although they came out firing in the third quarter with two in a row to get back within 15. The Lakers responded with another run of their own, though, as LeBron flushed a dunk, and then he and Russell hit back-to-back 3s.

Rui Hachimura then got in on the action with back-to-back triples, and the Lakers would take a comfortable 102-75 lead into the fourth quarter.

The Jazz seemed to gain momentum to start the fourth, but it wasn’t enough as the Lakers remained in control. The rest of the fourth turned into garbage time, with the Jazz looking like a sad piece of music. The Lakers dominated Utah en route to a 131-99 win.

LeBron James continues to play at an extremely high level in his 21st NBA season, and that was again the case on Tuesday night.

It was another milestone night for the future Hall of Famer and NBA scoring champion as he became the first player in history to reach 39,000 career points.

After the win, he still had not processed what that meant, although he was grateful to be able to be the first to accomplish it.

 

 

 

No, not really. I have not. Got congratulated by all my teammates and coaches and things of that nature. I haven’t had an opportunity to really, I guess, wrap my head around what that means,” James said after the game. “There’s been a lot of great players that have come across this league since the beginning of time, so many great scorers. To be able to accomplish something that’s the first of anything, I think that’s always pretty cool. It’s a wild moment, that’s for sure.
