New Orleans Hornets (15-30) at Utah Jazz (24-21), 9 p.m. (ET)

(Sports Network) - Coming off their worst loss in Salt Lake City, the Utah Jazz look to bounce back versus the New Orleans Hornets Wednesday in the continuation of a four-game homestand.

The Jazz were trounced, 125-80, by the Houston Rockets Monday night and trailed by as many as 50 points. It was the fifth-worst loss overall by the Jazz, who shot 39.5 percent for the game and made only 5-of-18 3-pointers.

It was the first NBA game this season in which a team outscored its opponent by a margin of at least six points in each quarter.

"They had a nice rhythm going and it is hard to stop them when they get going like that," Jazz forward Paul Millsap said of the Rockets.

Randy Foye scored 12 points, Derrick Favors netted 11 and Al Jefferson dropped in 10 points for the Jazz, who had won nine of 12 games and fell to 15-5 as the host. Utah will start a home-and-home series with Portland Friday night and is in the midst of playing 10 of 12 games as the host.

Jazz guard Gordon Hayward (right shoulder sprain) missed the Houston game and is listed as doubtful for Wednesday. He is averaging 13.5 ppg this season and 14.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists in January.

Jefferson is averaging 17.4 points and 9.1 rebounds in his last 11 games.

New Orleans fell victim to the Los Angeles Lakers, 111-106, Tuesday night at Staples Center in the second portion of a five-game road trip.

Eric Gordon poured in 25 points and Greivis Vasquez scored 15 points and dished out 15 assists for the Hornets, who lost for the fourth time in six tries and are just 8-15 away from the Big Easy. Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson scored 18 and 16 points, respectively.

The Hornets trailed by one after the first quarter (25-24), but the Lakers posted a 29-18 advantage in the second stanza.

"You can't have a second quarter like we did. We missed a lot of easy shots," said Hornets coach Monty Williams. "They won the game, but we had a chance. We just couldn't get the stops we needed, but our guys fought."

In 14 games this season, Gordon leads the Hornets with 17.4 ppg, while Anderson is right behind with 17.0 ppg in 45 games.

New Orleans will visit Denver and Minnesota on the trek and is in the thick of nine of 11 games on the road.

The Hornets and Jazz have split a pair of matchups this season -- both in the Big Easy -- and will meet again April 5 in Salt Lake City. Utah has won 10 of the last 13 meetings between the teams out west.
