The Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Lakers won games on Thursday night as the NBA returned to the court. Players wore social justice slogans on their jerseys, and the court was emblazoned with the words “Black Lives Matter.” The season restart continues this weekend as 22 teams play to secure one of eight playoff spots. The league is holding the games at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Fla.
