My prediction for the series: I have this sneaky feeling that the Jazz are going to find a way to win the series, but it’s going to require a win today in Game 1. If the Jazz lose today, I’m going to say the series still goes 7 games, with the Lakers winning the last game at home. Any big upset by the Jazz is going to require super-human effort from Deron Williams. Point guard is the only matchup where the Jazz have an advantage so the injuries to Deron’s wrist and elbow are making me nervous for today’s game.
Still, there can be no complaining from the Jazz. They made their bed when they didn’t show up for the Phoenix game on the last night of the regular season and now they have to sleep in it by playing the Lakers in the 2nd Round. Here’s to a strong showing by Utah.
