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

Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors and the Utah Jazz will get their second preseason meeting with Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday in L.A.

The Jazz won the first meeting by a final score of 119-86.

 

Tipoff: 9:30 p.m. ET

Coverage: TWC SN/Root Sports

 

Keys to the Game

The Jazz overwhelmed the Lakers with a combination of athleticism and balanced scoring in the first game. Five players reached double figures, and 10 scored at least seven. If they push the pace again, the Lakers defense is likely to look every bit as hapless.

For L.A., this preseason continues to be about how Kobe Bryant looks. He scored 27 in the first meeting against Utah, but it took 23 shots to get there. Age and injuries have clearly taken their toll, so much of this season could be about adjusting for him.

Houston Rockets Highlights to Get You Pumped Up for 2014-15 Season

A lot has gone wrong for the Houston Rockets lately. Ever since Damian Lillard sent them packing earlier than expected in the 2013-14 postseason, the Rockets have had the bad news pile on.

General manager Daryl Morey took a big swing this offseason and came up empty. He lost Jeremy Lin, Omer Asik and Chandler Parsons in a bold attempt to bring in Carmelo Anthony or Chris Bosh. This whiff has left the Rockets reeling, and now the bench consists of young, unproven talent.

But it’s not all bad for Houston fans.

The Rockets still have two All-Stars in James Harden and Dwight Howard. They also have some promising players looking to burst on the scene in their new roles this upcoming year. And, with a new mindset on defense combined with the team’s impeccable offensive efficiency, there could be a lot to look forward to in Houston.

Here are some videos to pump you up for the Rockets’ 2014-15 campaign.
