Lakers Today: 12/28/07

Back to STAPLES Center it is for the Lakers tonight as they welcome in the Utah Jazz at 7:30 tonight. The last time the Jazz visited LA, the Purple & Gold sent them back to Utah on a rail. The Jazz returned the favor when the Lakers visited Salt Lake City.

The team might want to forget that last match up, but Phil Jackson isn’t going to let them forget it. Since that last meeting the Lakers have won 9 of 12, while the Jazz have lost 9 of 12.

Kwame Brown and Luke Walton are both being listed as doubtful for the game.

Trevor Ariza is starting to adjust to his role with the Lakers and becoming a fan favorite with his athletic play.

After Ariza dunked over Hill, a solitary voice from the courtside seats could be heard over the din of the crowd.

“Hey, Grant, will you sign my poster?” a fan yelled derisively.
