Sizzling Jazz, slumping Lakers headed for marquee showdown

NBA fans not closely following the league might be surprised to learn which team in Wednesday night's marquee matchup in Salt Lake City enters with the best record, red-hot outside shooting and an offense and defense both ranked in the top four.

That would be the Utah Jazz, not the defending NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers.

The Jazz dominated another opponent in crunch time Monday night en route to a 132-110 victory against the Charlotte Hornets, giving Utah its 21st win in 23 games.
