Okay. We know that the Cleveland Cavaliers are 6-1 and lead their conference. They have this LeBron James guy and he solves a lot of ills. He's good. No. He's great. But it's not like he's winning the game every night he steps out on the floor. In fact, he's lost to the Utah Jazz more than Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan ever did. Yes, part of it may be a suspect supporting cast, never-the-less, that means he can be beat. And tonight the Utah Jazz will try to do just that. Utah is ready to party. And by party, I mean play a slowed down game, and grind other teams into dust. That's kind of what the Cleveland Cavs have been doing for a few seasons as well. So if this is what you want to watch, you're in for a treat tonight!

WOW! Who knew a city in Ohio would have such a popular team!! Anyway, tonight should be a big game for the Jazz -- if for no other reason than because it is a measuring stick game.
