Ok, how about 2 bigs or a medium like Millsap? We'll take Millsap and Collins for Davis :mrgreen:

The team should go out and have fun, play loose. They have done more than most expected and this is the end of small expectations for this team, from now on they will be expected to make the playoffs every season and with good reason.

I want to pick the Warriors to win but think the Jazz will pull it out but........

We were close to get a win in the first two games. I can't see a rease why we cannot win now.

So... Dubs by 4. Let's make the Jazz sweat a bit more.

Well, the question is "CAN" the Warriors win in Utah...

Even if its a small chance, the Warriors are a momentum team that gets hot really quickly. Ask the best team in the league.

I think it will do the NBA community good to see this series continue for as long as possible (or 7 games whichever comes first)
Everyone who has watched the warriors play has to admit, even die hard jazz and mavs fans that they made the playoffs a whole lot more exciting.

Very true. The playoff this year would've never been been this tempting to watch. A cinderella team upsetting the first seed and now in the 2nd round. Knowing Stern, he's going to find a way to continue this entertaining series. Full of emotion, full of excitement, and living up to its hype.

Yikes, what does THAT mean? Does Stern tell the refs "make sure W's win tonight"? If Stern has anything to do with who wins or loses I would officially hate this game.

Its gonna be a dog fight tonight, hope the refs let the boys play, may the best team of the night come out on top. If Jazz win, national sports writers can go back to ignoring them, fans can continue riffing on how boring they are. If W's win, the storybook season has major new life, national fervor for Cinderella hits new heights.

Be honest, have the Jazz been playing boring ball? Win or lose, even a grudging prop for the least liked team in the league?

They're not the least liked. The Spurs are that team... and both of them are pretty good teams. Nobody is saying they aren't.

I'd like to see the team get physical with Boozer. A guy like Pietrus can use up alot of his fouls coming over and going hard at Boozer when he is in. I reckon trying to rattle the Jazz main players, such as Boozer and deron might be effective. Okur can be guarded singley by Biedrins, Pietrus, Barnes etc. Doubling Boozer is a real option and I'd rather see AK take some shots more often away from the basket. Defense will be key for the team because if they can make the Jazz take more jumpers again, it will be a big plus

well for the normal bball fan sitting at home or in the stands, they'd like to see more action. If you have a slow it down, grind it out type of game that does get boring to a lot of fans. The only other way to hype up bball as is with any sport is an epic rivalry like with the Bulls and the Jazz last decade or maybe with Shaq and The dream. That got me watching the NBA when the warriors were out and about setting up their lottery pick...

As for the Warriors. Obviously, it is a must win. They have to clear their minds and come out focused and loose. Since they play a very quick up and down game, fatigue will set in. For once Barkley did have a good point about fatigue getting the best of the warriors, but a lot of it is in their head. Take it from a person who has practiced martial arts to the point where I started to dry heave. The only thing to do is to focus mentally. Then the warriors will play like I believe they can play.
