Utah Jazz -3 vs. LA Lakers
Freeroll here: The line is about right if Anthony Davis plays.
But considering AD is battling a lingering shoulder injury and the flu - he got an IV at halftime last night in their win in Denver - I don't see any reason why the Lakers would play him on the second night of a back to back.
Power Ranking Analysis: Lakers=2.5 points better. Jazz HCA=4 points. Lakers on the second night of a road back to back=-1.
Blend (for the home team): -2.5+4+1= Jazz -2.5.
With apologies to Kuzma fans, the Lakers are really a two-man team. With either pillar out they are much more vulnerable. If AD doesn't play - or plays like a normal human battling the flu on the second night of road back-to-back - this line should be Jazz by 5 to 6.
