Utah Jazz vs. Los Angeles Lakers Friday Game Preview, TV Schedule and Betting Line

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Utah Jazz take to the road tonight to face the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center at 10:35 PM EST; if you were looking for the TV schedule for this game, then I’m your main man.

TV: ROOT-Rocky Mountain, Time Warner, DTV: 684, 691, 760, 761

The Lakers are favored (-3.5), and would probably pick them to cover the spread but not with great confidence. Feel real bad for Kobe Bryant who worked so hard to get back from injury only to endure a setback. He will probably be back before the year is up, and looking forward to seeing what he has left in the tank. In the end, think next year could be the Black Mamba’s best shot but he will probably end up settling in with five titles. Not too shabby, just not quite what he was aiming for.

Things are also not looking good for the Lakers at the point guard position; Jordan Farmar went down and so the team will be turning to Kendall Marshall to perform with basically no practice time with the team.

“I feel really bad for him,” D’Antoni said about Farmar after the injury. “It’s not in the same spot. It’s kind of weird. Of course, it’s kind of par for the course. In the last couple months we’ve just had some weird injuries.”

That is all for previews today, but we will have some cool things in store for you in 2014 here at Rant Sports.
