Jazz hand Lakers club record-tying 6th straight home loss, 96-79, as Nash sits out 2nd half

Reserve Alec Burks scored 13 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and the Utah Jazz sent the injury-riddled Los Angeles Lakers to a franchise record-tying sixth straight home loss, 96-79 on Tuesday night.

Chris Kaman had 25 points and 14 rebounds for the Lakers, who have dropped nine of 11 overall and 21 of 26 since Dec. 21. The loss to Utah put Los Angeles in 14th place in the Western Conference, a half-game behind the Jazz and a game ahead of last-place Sacramento.
