Lakers Out Last The Jazz In Series Opener
Posted by Nancy on May 03, 2010
Utah fans had high hopes for the team going into the first game of the Laker/Jazz series which started Sunday afternoon in the Staples Center. Not withstanding the reality that the Lakers are the number one seed in the Western Conference and the fact that Kobe Bryant just may be the best game closer in the league, Jazz fans still had hopes. As it turned out, the the home team won, darn it, but they only won by 5 points (l01-99) and the Jazz did outscore the Lakers 12-1 in the final quarter of play. But then there was Pau Kasol who put the Lakers ahead with only 5 seconds left in the game and the victory then pretty much sealed. Utah played tough for the most part but they can’t seem to handle all the “big guys” on the L.A. team. They are stacked in that department with 2 7footers and a 6″10″ man thrown in for good measure. The Jazz players are showing a lot of heart and the fans are certainly not giving up on them. At least not yet. Game 2 is tomorrow night and hopefully it will be an “off” night for the Lakers and a red hot outing for the Jazz. A person can always hope….
