The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Utah Jazz in a lop sided Game 4 to sweep the playoff series against the Utah Jazz and to advance to the Western Conference Finals for the third consecutive year. This is the first time in 2 years that the Lakers swept an opponent in the playoffs since sweeping the Denver Nuggets in Round 1 of the 2008 playoffs.
However, theres more. Everyone knows that Jerry Sloan has been around for a while and there is no denying that he is a great coach. But in that long career this sweep marked the first time that Jerry Sloan got swept in a playoff matchup.
A week from now, the Lakers take on the Phoenix Suns in Game 1 at the STAPLES Centre.
