LA LAKERS: LAST SEASON: 37-45, finished 10th in Western Conference.
COACH: Frank Vogel (first season with Lakers; ninth season overall, 304-291).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Rajon Rondo (9.2 ppg), G Danny Green (10.3 with Toronto), F LeBron James (27.4), F Anthony Davis (25.9 with New Orleans), C JaVale McGee (12.0).
KEY LOSSES: F Brandon Ingram, G Lonzo Ball, G Josh Hart, G Lance Stephenson.
KEY ADDITIONS: Davis, Green, C Dwight Howard, G Avery Bradley, F Jared Dudley, G Quinn Cook.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The evolving chemistry between James and Davis will be at the forefront, but the Lakers' success in creating an immediate title contender could hinge on the supporting cast. Green must keep the outside shooting proficiency he demonstrated last season for Toronto, while Kyle Kuzma must find a role on a reconfigured roster. The Lakers' biggest early-season subplot of all might be around Howard, whose return to LA after six seasons away could be greeted by boos or cheers.
OUTLOOK: An aspiring super team takes shape around James and Davis, who joined forces to do a whole lot more than end the Lakers' franchise-record playoff drought at six years. LA expects to be a title contender with two of the NBA's best players anchoring a lineup featuring perimeter shooting from Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, fast-break proficiency from Alex Caruso and Kuzma, and sturdy defense from Bradley, Rondo and McGee. Vogel's ability to fold this talent into a cohesive unit over the next few months will determine whether the Lakers can do something special in the spring.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

UTAH: LAST SEASON: 50-32, lost 4-1 to Houston in Western Conference first round.
COACH: Quin Snyder (sixth season, 227-183).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Mike Conley (21.1 ppg), G Donovan Mitchell (23.8), F Bojan Bogdanovic. (18.0), F Joe Ingles (12.1), C Rudy Gobert (15.9)
KEY LOSSES: F/C Derrick Favors, G Ricky Rubio, F Jae Crowder, G Kyle Korver.
KEY ADDITIONS: Conley, Bogdanovic, F Jeff Green, C Ed Davis, G Emmanuel Mudiay.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: All eyes will be on Mitchell to see if he can emerge as a true All-Star this season. The third-year guard, who averaged at least 20 points in each of his first two seasons, won't have to shoulder as big of a load in creating the offense with Conley now sharing the backcourt. Gobert is a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and will anchor one of the league's best defenses again. He posted career-highs in points (15.9) and rebounds (12.9) per game a year ago. Bogdanovic adds a valuable shooter on the wing with Ingles that should give the Jazz an improved outside scoring punch. He shot a career-high 42.5 percent from 3-point range last season.
OUTLOOK: The Jazz are well positioned to take a step forward and become a Western Conference title contender. Conley gives Utah a veteran point guard who is a legit scoring threat in addition to a strong passer. Bogdanovic and Green will also shore up shooting and help Conley take away some of the pressure from Ingles and Mitchell to get it all done on offense. Utah's fortunes, ultimately, will rise and fall on the continued progression of the central star duo of Mitchell and Gobert. If the Jazz offense can catch up to the team's elite defense this season, few teams will be able hang with Utah as the season progresses.
Lakers, Jazz hoping to rebound after lackluster losses

Fresh off a stark reminder that a run to the NBA Finals is far from a foregone conclusion, the Los Angeles Lakers will face another stern test during the restart with a matchup Monday against the Utah Jazz near Orlando.

The Lakers' wakeup call came Saturday when the Western Conference leaders had their offense disrupted by the defending champion Toronto Raptors in a 107-92 defeat. That would be a Raptors team that is in second place in the Eastern Conference and no longer has Kawhi Leonard, who led them to a title last season.

The Lakers (50-15) certainly looked the part as the best in the West when they defeated Leonard's Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday, the night of the NBA's return.

The Jazz (42-24) also won that night, taking the first game of the league's return when they defeated the New Orleans Pelicans. Utah, the fourth-place team in the Western Conference, is coming off a 110-94 defeat to the fifth-place Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday.

Yet the Jazz still are looking at Saturday's game as a win. On March 11 they were supposed to play in Oklahoma City when the game was called off just before the opening tip. Utah center Rudy Gobert had tested positive for COVID-19. Upon the conclusion of the March 11 slate of games, the NBA suspended play.

"It's pretty surreal that we ended up here kind of replaying the game," said Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell, who also ended up testing positive for COVID-19. "I think honestly it was kind of refreshing to go out there and play that game specifically because it was the one that really changed a lot throughout the world and I think for us to get out there, outside of just the game itself, but just for us as a whole and the NBA, I think it was a pretty special moment."

Mitchell had 13 points against the Thunder on Saturday and Mike Conley added 12, but the Jazz shot 39.1 percent from the field, trailed 29-15 after one quarter and were in scramble mode the rest of the way.

Mitchell's point total was well below his team-leading 24.0 per game. Gobert grabs 13.6 rebounds per game but had just seven boards against the Thunder.

The Lakers were even worse from the field against the Raptors on Saturday, shooting 35.4 percent and just 25 percent (10 of 40) from 3-point range.

LeBron James scored 20 points and Anthony Davis had 14, giving the dynamic duo just one more point combined than Toronto's Kyle Lowry, who had 33. Davis took just seven shots in 35 minutes. Toronto also had a 51-40 rebounding advantage.

James, who scores 25.5 points per game with 8.0 rebounds and 10.5 assists, had 10 rebounds and five assists against the Raptors. Davis, who scores 26.6 points per game, figures to be more involved Monday against the Jazz.

"When a team is doubling as much as they were, we still want to get (Davis) more involved than we did," Lakers head coach Frank Vogel said to the media after the loss to the Raptors. "But I thought he did a really good job of identifying the double teams where it was coming from and finding open shots for guys on the backside."
