Lakes in 5.
KT, Bynum is back so it's quite likely Odom will be coming off the bench.

Yup I am that lonely 1 who voted for the Jazz. Jazz in 6, you just wait and see, D-Will will go off. If it isn't rigged like it was last year when they met in the playoffs, Utah should and will win this series.

Ill wait.. And won't see. If you think the Jazz can win in staples you are crazy. D-Will better go off, but he needs to for the Jazz to have a chance. Lakes in five.

Just look at it this way, if the Jazz can somehow win won at Staples, they will win the series, this series will go atleast 6, because I don't think the Lakers can win at the Energy Solution Arena and their green seats. D-Will will go off, there is no arguing that, but if Boozer can get his act together they have a chance.

Do I really think this is going to happen? No, not really, but to quote the little kid from Angels in the Outfield, "Hey, it could happen..."

So the same Jazz team that has lost 7 out of 9 down stretch by an average of 13 pts. per game and has a 15-26 road record on the season is going to go into the Staples Center where the Lakers are 36-5 on the season and win. I hate the Lakers, but there's no way.

Ok, come on guys. The Jazz are one of the best home teams in the League and especially in the playoffs. If the Jazz get swept you all can call me an idiot, cause it ain't going to happen.
