Los Angeles Lakers vs Utah Jazz: Watch Live Stream of Lakers; Preview

By Staff Reporter, Posted: 12/09/12 12:11PM EST

Amid rumors that Pau Gasol may be benched -- or traded -- the Los Angeles Lakers will host the Utah Jazz tonight in yet another game in the young, but already dramatic, NBA season. The game will be on KCAL 9, but you can watch a live stream of it, free, by clicking here. 

So yeah, there are rumors running around Gasol may be traded for Houston's Jeremy Lin, but the Lakers are trying to wait to see what happens when Steve Nash comes back. Nash is a great point guard, but he's nearly 40 and coming off a fractured leg, so it's not like he can just come back and the Lakers can turn into a juggernaunt.

The Lakers, if they want to get back on track, will have to do it the old school way, through developing teamwork and building better chemistry. They have the talent. Dwight Howard is missing free throws, yes, but so did Shaq in the early 2000s and those Lakers were unbeatable. Kobe Bryant should also tone down the public criticism over teammates and just lead by example.

The Jazz have a strong front line. Al Jefferson and Paul Millsapp are two bruising bigs who don't mess around. The Lakers want to go small? They may pay for it tonight.

Meanwhile, the return of Mo Williams to Salt Lake has rejuvenated his career, as well as the Utah squad that's reliant on solid point guard play. Williams can get hot quickly, so he'll likely torch the Lakers' sad point guard rotation right now, which includes Chris Duhon and a rookie whose name we don't even remember.

Yeah, it's that bad. You can stream the game live tonight to see if the Lakers continue to falter or make their bounce back to elite status.
