The Utah Jazz face the Los Angeles Lakers in their season opener Dec. 27. The Jazz have lost 25 of the last 28 meetings in LA including the playoffs, and they look to open their season with a win over the struggling Lakers.  

The Lakers have lost two straight to the Bulls and Kings, and they are looking to avoid their first 0-3 start in 33 years.
