The Miami Heat star topped the list of most popular jerseys this season, and it’s the sixth time he’s had that distinction. With James at No. 1 and teammate Dwyane Wade at No. 7, the Heat also had the top spot on the team-merchandise list. Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City is No. 2 on the league list, followed by the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant, Chicago’s Derrick Rose, Golden State’s Stephen Curry and New York’s Carmelo Anthony.

But in Monday’s defeat, the Utah Jazz had already given some fans the kind of balls they really wanted: the lottery variety. The loss, a 119-104 affair with the Los Angeles Lakers, assured that the Jazz will finish the season no better than tied for the fourth-worse record in the NBA, and therefore th...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

After all, the Jazz now claim the NBA’s fourth-worst record (24-57) with one game remaining, Wednesday at Minnesota. They’re assured of finishing behind the Lakers. So the Jazz enhanced their lottery odds and potential draft position, which evoked some rejoicing among fans.

Exhibit A? Nick Young and the Lakers. Young scored 41 points on 14-for-23 shooting Monday night, leading Los Angeles to a 119-104 victory over the defense-less Jazz at EnergySolutions Arena. Young scored 17 points in the fourth quarter, when the Lakers broke open a close game by making 12 of their 20 field-goal attempts. “Nick is fun,” said Laker coach Mike D’Antoni. “He’s a good guy in a se...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

With Young leading the way, the Los Angeles Lakers rolled to a 119-104 victory at EnergySolutions Arena. Young scored 17 points in the fourth quarter, when L.A. pulled away and snapped a seven-game losing streak.

The L.A. Lakers come into Salt Lake City, a team that’s won 16 titles. A Jazz vs. Lakers matchups in years past would be a premier event. That’s not the case this season. The only worst team in the Western Conference this season than the Lakers is ... the Jazz. The teams have won a combined 49 games this season.
