The Los Angeles Lakers have yet to win on the road this season, and will look to get their first road win Wednesday night as they travel to Salt Lake City to take on the Utah Jazz in a Pacific Division battle. Here are the relevant details of Wednesday's game:
Records: Lakers (7-4), Jazz (6-3)
Location: Energy Solutions Arena
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Offensive: Average Points: Jazz 92.9 (20th); Lakers 95.0 (14th)
Defensive: Lakers 90.0 (tied 3rd); Jazz 95.1 (tied 16th)
Free Agent Trio MIA: The Lakers three preseason free agent acquisitions will be off the roster for the second consecutive game. Troy Murphy (gastroenteritis) didn't travel with the team, Josh McRoberts with his sprained big toe and thumb is doubtful, and Jason Kapono is not with the team for personal reasons.
Back to Back: Tonight's game is part of a back to back set with the Suns and Utah. The Lakers will play 18 sets of back to back games, last year the Lakers played an NBA low 15 back to back sets. 30% of the Lakers' games this year will come without a day of rest.
