Los Angeles Lakers vs. Utah Jazz: Live Score, Results and Game Highlights

Grant Hughes@@gt_hughesNational NBA Featured ColumnistNovember 8, 2012

The L.A. Lakers fell to the Utah Jazz 95-86.

The Lakers dropped to 1-4, the worst record they've had to start a season since 1993-94. Utah improved to 2-3.

Los Angeles struggled mightily from the field, shooting just 33 percent. On top of that, L.A. consistently failed to get back in transition, allowing the Jazz to pile up easy looks and breakaway buckets.

The Lakers crept into the game late, but Randy Foye dropped three triples in a row to keep the lead comfortable.

Kobe Bryant finished with 29, but made just seven field goals and looked somewhat disinterested (a disturbing trend among the Lakers) until the final minutes. But by then, it was too late.

Final Score: Jazz 95, Lakers 86
