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.

Lakes in 5.

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

The Lakers might just sweep through the playoffs. This is going to be fun.

This is a joke right? Sweep through the playoffs? I may be wrong but, you know I'm not, no other NBA team in HISTORY has swept through the postseason. So by this knowledge, this Lakers team is one of the best teams of all time. PLEASE!!

Oh and I like to see I'm not the other one who thinks the Jazz can actually win this series.

Yes, I was joking, but I definitely think the Lakers could dominate the playoffs. Obviously I could be wrong, but if Bynum plays well they will stomp on people.

Joe Crawford continues to be one of the worst refs in the game. There is really no point in playing this series if the refs won't even give the Jazz a chance. It's always going to be this way as long as Stern is in office and the refs continue to get on the knees for Phil Jackson. All of these calls are just anticipation fouls and the fact that it is Kobe Bryant that is shooting the ball he must be getting fouled because he isn't allowed to miss shots. Lakers will be in the NBA Finals, not because they are the best team in the west but because the NBA won't let it happen.

So Kobe has 2 free throw attempts at the half. :rolleyes:

Last time the teams played the Jazz shot 47 free throws.

The Lakers have 14 total free throw attempts as a team at the half.

Take off the hater glasses.

The difference is the Lakers ae shooting at a .650 clip, the Jazz .350.

Defense.

    • This is why mock drafts are stupid (and why the serious analysts like Mayock only do them to appease viewers) because it's almost impossible to guess what each GM is going to do and to pick out all the trades. 

      How a rational human being should judge these analysts is were they right about the studs and the duds three years from now. This is why I am indifferent about Christian. I didn't waste my time watching hours of tape, but I trust that DG did. If he's Christian ends up being the player we want him to be, then that's success. If mayock and others saw him having success in the next level then that's success. If analysts don't think Trubisky will have success and he does, then that's failure on part of the analysts.
    • Kareem Hunt from Toledo runs in a similar manner to Cook and will be available in the 3rd and maybe 4th. If they value someone higher than Cook, it's possible they pass and take a back later.
