NBA Playoffs: Los Angeles Lakers at Utah Jazz -- Remembering Game 1 of the 1998 Western Conference Finals

Good old days . . .

Jed Jacobsohn

Tonight the Los Angeles Lakers will face off against the Utah Jazz in one of the most mistake filled games we are expected to watch. Hopefully the game doesn't go into overtime. This is not how these two proud teams would want to be remembered.

Let's take a trip back to enjoy the good old days (video via JazzBasketball1):

The Jazz won the WCF in 4 straight games. Karl Malone averaged 30/10/5/1. John Stockton averaged 12/8/3/1. This season wasn't a great season for either franchise. But this draft will hold keys to future battles in the playoffs.
