Anyone have a fork? Cuz the Jazz are done.Yes, that is the fat lady
Jazz still have to win two games on the road and the Lakers have to lose at
least 1 game out of two which are both at home! I don`t think that is going to
Agreed all of you above what will do to favor for Lakers. So, why worry because
I have already (a long time ago) stop watching NBAs. Either way who will be in
for the number 8 spot will get swept in 4 games.
I agree with you, JBQ. But without Kobe, does anyone really want to see the
Spurs sweep the Lakers in four games?However, I do think the refs
have been told "Whatever you do, make sure the Lakers get in."
It has already been stated on "Bleacher Report" that the Spurs "are
not interested in being the number one seed". Therefore, that would mean
that they will rest their stars. As stated in this article, they have a history
of doing so. In the two point win over Golden State, Kobe unfortunately just
fell down with a heartbreaking injury. Just as unfortunately, Harrison Barnes
was called for a foul by the offical who was behind Kobe on the baseline. Kobe,
to his credit, still took the free throws and made both which was the margin of
victory. I am rooting for the Jazz. Unfortunately, the "powers that be"
are not. AJ could score 80 points and he just may. The Jazz are not getting in
unless Houston pulls off a miracle and are motivated to win with all of the
"jet set" sitting behind Kobe (and what a magnificent hero he is) and
mesmerizing the tv media and probably psychologically influencing the "men
with stripes". Sad but true.
"It's really hard to look at the Lakers' 50 free throws (compared
to Golden State's 16) in their 2 point win against Golden State and not
think Stern had a hand in helping them toward the playoffs."Except for that one time when David Stern vetoed the Chris Paul to the Lakers
