if you would have told me pre-season we would play utah in round 1 i would have laughed my butt off

utah is by far the 3rd most talented team in the NBA and 4th deepest so this isn't a gimme.

Yes it is. Have you not seen the slump the Jazz have been in for the last few weeks? We should be able to finish them off in five games.

Calling a clean sweep Cobra Kai style.

Best they get 4-1

This team is too soft to mentally hang with us right now. They are at a low, we are at a high. We have momentum, they do not. We know we can win in Utah, they think they may have a shot in Staples.

I'm calling this bitch in 4 and I was the first to do it.

"If you could stop all the players that get publicized and all the players that the NBA likes and all the players, you know, the players that win the MVP's, you know, for their offense. And some of them, you know, play pretty good defense too. But some of them, you know, they like "this guy he can shoot, he can score, he can dunk." and I want to be the one to stop all those guys, you know, and just kinda spoil the whole party." - Ron Artest

Should be a sweep if we play relatively hard and somewhat contain D-will.

last year the jazz were better than us. Were more physical than us etc. We won in 6

This year we are light years better than we were last year and the jazz are far worse than last year. We are the better defensive team (when we want). we are actually the more physical team contrary to what media says

4 games, 5 because the jazz found pride
Kobe's official reign of terror is about to get its jump off on.

Based on what? They lost at home to a seven man JV squad from Oakland. They lost at home to Minnesota. They can't win on the road. They may be the third most talented team in the NBA but they're only the eighth best team in the West.

I think game three will result in 100 freethrows between the teams.

Great game to end season on. Sasha will need that touch all the way through.
The best sports franchise in the world.

Im going with 4. They can rebound, but we are deeper. Deron Williams scares me though.

It's going to be hard to win in Utah.

Still Lakers in 6.
