What caused things to fall apart for Utah in the third quarter of the Jazz’s loss to Lakers? Anthony Davis
  • The Jazz held a 71-67 lead midway through the third quarter, but the Lakers took control with a 19-2 run that spanned five and a half minutes. Anthony Davis had 10 points during that stretch, including a pair of 3-pointers.
  • Speaking of Davis, he was effective on both ends of the court for Los Angeles, finishing the night with 42 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block. The power forward had 24 first-half points, hit a team-high four 3-pointers and capped the night with a four-point play in the final minute to put Los Angeles back up 10. That offset a solid night for Utah’s Donovan Mitchell, who had 33 points, including 21 in the first half, while shooting 40.9% from the floor.
  • Despite losing the 3-point battle to Utah — the Jazz hit 12 to nine for Los Angeles — the Lakers warmed up from the floor in the second half, shooting 54% from the field in the final two quarters. Los Angeles, which clinched the No. 1 seed in the West with the win, shot 50% for the game, while the Jazz shot 44.6% and had a costly 21 turnovers.
