Jerry Sloan

------------------------------------

Lake Show will win this series in 6 games. Jazz are a good team and Sloan deserves props for getting an injured squad past Denver in the 1st round. But this team wont get it done against LA. Boozer who was great last series will now have to work around 2 7 footers in the lane. Deron Williams should be able to exploit Fisher if his wrist isnt messed up, but it wont be enough.

Jazz in 6

Could easily see this going into 7 and the Lakers winning.

But I think the Jazz are gonna steal one.

Lakers in 6.

Deron Williams will continually make the Lakers lives miserable but Gasol and Bynum will be the difference.

Lakers’ center Bynum has small meniscus tear

EL SEGUNDO, California (AP)—Lakers center Andrew Bynum has a small tear in the meniscus in his right knee, leaving him questionable for Los Angeles’ second-round playoff opener against the Utah Jazz.

Lakers coach Phil Jackson said Bynum might try to play through the pain in Sunday’s opener at Staples Center.

Bynum hyperextended his knee in the first half of the Lakers’ series-clinching win over Oklahoma City on Friday night, but played the second half wearing a brace. An MRI exam on Saturday revealed the tiny tear, which apparently was aggravated by his injury.

Bynum missed the last 13 games of the regular season with a strained Achilles’ tendon, but returned to average 12 points, nine rebounds and 2.2 blocked shots while starting all six games against the Thunder.

I think this is going to be a quick, boring series. I dont know why, but I think Denver would've given the Lakers more trouble. Lakers in 5

Jazz took some pretty dumb shots in the last 4:30 of the game add that with not blocking out Odom and it was a bad mixture, keep in mind Utah only needs to win once in LA this trip to be happy!

Lakers clearly played down to the Jazz's level. Like a trap game, this is a trap series and the Lakers have a rep of taking things too lightly sometimes. Cleary the far superior team, even more so with the Utah injuries. The only way this isn't a sweep is if the Lakers slack off again in the next few games.
