Jazz begin road stretch (early March)
The Jazz play five of their next six games on the road, including four against the Eastern Conference before they return to Salt Lake City one week from Monday. The Jazz (32-27) remain mired in the Western Conference playoff race, tied with Houston for seventh and one-half game behind Golden State for sixth place.
The Los Angeles Lakers, meanwhile, improved to .500 with a critical win over Atlanta on Sunday as the much-talked-about Lakers fight to make the postseason.
The Jazz remain 2 ½ games ahead of the Lakers and hold the tiebreaker after winning two of three games in head-to-head matchups.
