Jazz & Lakers Got Winning Streaks!!
Utah Jazz & Los Angele Lakers are on some pretty impressive winning streaks. The Lakers are at the top of the West with a record of 32-7 and have won 8 straight games. The Jazz have climbed up and now have the 3rd (or tie for 2nd) in the West and have won 9 straight.
The real surprise here is the Jazz 9 game winning streak, undefeated since the Jordan Clarkson signing. The Jazz deserve a lot more credit than they are getting in 2020. The streak kicked off with a win against the Blazers and then the Clippers, who had both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George active. The Jazz climbed in the standings push the Rockets down and the Clippers in to the 5th seed.
Personally, I follow the Jazz religiously, hence “Jazz Nonsense”, and I also I will be attending some Jazz games. I am enjoying seeing the Jazz do this good and be completely jellying. The Jazz have giving themselves some cushion by beating on teams under 500 and everybody should be loving it. If the Jazz keep going and get in the playoffs with home court advantage for the 1st round, I mean, just imagine SLC going wild on some nonsense.
(Note: still no credit will be giving to Bojan Bogdanovic, the hate strong and he still “meh” of a player)
The shot at 10 straight wins for the Jazz will be a contest against Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday January 14. That won’t be an easy matchup being on the road and fighting a Nets team looking to turn around their recent slump. Irving will be playing on his 2nd game, against the Hawks he played 20 minute scoring 21 points on 10-11 including 1-1 from the 3pt Line.
The Lakers are 5 games ahead in the West and are getting LeBron for a chance at a 9th straight win. The Lakers have already been on a 10 game winning streak before losing to the Mavericks, who have been twice victims in this current streak. The Lakers are more than rolling, they have scored at least 106 points in each game even then one without Anthony Davis, LeBron James and Danny Green.
Kyle Kuzma pay no attention to the reports that he plays worse when he is rumors of trade are going on. Kuzma score a season high against Dallas, starting in place of Anthony Davis. The very next game vs the Oklahoma City Thunder led with 36 points. Kuzma is averaging 13.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and .8 assist and proving that he can be depended it on as the 3rd option but also in a starting role. While for Kuzma, it really has just been a small sample it really shows what he can do.
The Lakers will look to keep their streak going at home (15-4 record) hosting the Cavaliers (9th) and the Magic (10th). This next games couldn’t have come at a better time, Lakers will be playing at home with a day’s rest in between before starting a 5 game road trip starting with the Rockets. The Lakers will be using this time and games to keep recovering Davis, who is listed as questionable.
