3 units on Utah +4.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: LOSS

There is one reason and one reason only why the Jazz are in the playoffs. It is their home-court advantage, and it isn't a novelty, it is something that they have enjoyed all the way back to 1990. The Jazz have gone 70-12 at home the last two years and 32-50 on the road. The playoffs have mirrored those results going 5-2 at home, and 2-6 on the road. Among those five wins in the last two years are three against this Lakers’ team, as well as a regular season win this year, and last season as well. The Jazz have enjoyed a 69-22 record at home in the playoffs since 1990, so to be getting points in this one, certainly shows a lot of value, especially when you factor in the success they have had in this building vs. the Lakers. Remember last year, they were blown out by 10+ in the first two games in LA, and came home and won the next two. I don't expect anything short of that this year, so Utah gets the call here.
