Jazz's Kyrylo Fesenko to get third start
A loss to the Lakers (54-20) officially eliminates the Jazz (36-39) from the playoffs and would make them the first team in history to start 15-5 and 27-13 and not qualify for postseason play, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Coach Ty Corbin said he decided to start the 7-foot-1 Fesenko because he matches up better against Andrew Bynum. Al Jefferson moves to the power forward spot and Paul Millsap to small forward, with C.J. Miles and Earl Watson starting at guard.
