SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley shared a pregame message with fans and encouraged them to vote on Election Day.

The veteran spoke to a home crowd at Vivint Arena prior to Utah’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday, November 7.

Conley expressed importance in voting and urged Jazz fans get out to the polls the following day.

“We all can create change together. It starts with just a vote,” Conley said.

Utah’s game against Los Angeles is broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA League Pass, and KSL Sports Zone.

Lakers vs. Jazz

The Jazz 8-3 record might be the most surprising story league-wide to open the season. That start includes a perfect 4-0 record at home.

Vivint Arena is traditionally one of the most difficult venues to play in in the NBA, and the Jazz have maintained that dominance despite an offseason roster overhaul.

The Jazz have the league’s second-best defensive rating at home, allowing just 102.9 points per 100 possessions in Salt Lake City.

Their 11.5 Net Rating is fifth among all teams at home this year.

Offensively, the Jazz have balanced their strong defensive attack at home by knocking down an average of 16.8 threes per game, tops in the league.

LeBron, Two Other Lakers Out

The Lakers will be extremely shorthanded when they travel to Utah to face the Jazz.

Superstar LeBron James will miss Monday’s game due to left foot soreness.

The Lakers starting backcourt will also miss the game in Utah as Lonnie Walker IV and Patrick Beverley are out with non-covid illnesses.

James had 17 points, 10 rebounds, and eight assists in the Lakers loss to the Jazz on Friday, but the star’s impact on the game was hardly felt.

Beverley and Walker IV combined for 22 points, six rebounds, and two assists.
