So we have the last, and fifth, game this week for the Utah Jazz, a roadie against the Los Angeles Lakers. It's going to be interesting to see how these two teams match-up. Utah is missing a number of guys, but so too is LA. Most everyone is going to be talking about Kobe, but I think Utah's injuries are more significant. I also think that Utah is currently a better team, but will be a tired one after having played two back to back sets in five nights. Hopefully the good guys win. And hopefully no one else gets injured.
