Unhappy Lakers aren't getting past Jazz this year

Jazz are the Lakers nightmare matchup. Offensively and defensively stellar. No more Rubio. A solidified bench.

Bump this in April, boys.

I doubt it. In the playoffs you need superstars and the Jazz have none while the Lakers have two. Jazz will be a great regular season team, but they aren't doing anything in the playoffs.

Not sure how far the Jazz go, just feel pretty strongly the Lakers won't come out alive from a series with them. Conley is outstanding. Mitchell regressed somewhat into a chucker last year but will be better with an improved team. Bogdanovic plays well in the playoffs and went at Lebron in 2018. Ingles and Gobert are studs. They have a quality bench with some decent big men. The Lakers certainly aren't going to just roll over that frontcourt.

Lakers are the least of their worries. Gobert has owned Davis. Lebron hasn't won in Utah since Deron Williams played here. McGee/Howard has to be the worst center combo in the game. Clippers and Denver are the teams for them to worry about

I'm not buying the Denver hype. Saw plenty of them as a Spurs fan last year and they're young and mistake prone. Jamal Murray can be taken out of the game.

Clippers are definitely a problem though and I can see Utah and them meeting in the WCF. Would be a hell of a series.

Instead of CP0 who actually played well against the Jazz, the Rockets now have Westbrick who got clowned by the likes of Rubio.

Anthony Davis will straight up destroy Gobert lol.

Unfortunately that is where the domination ends. Jazz are just going to be a better coached team. Less predicatble than the Lakers too.

Lakers are not going to be a super team like some people think. This is as bad as the time they got Nash and Dwight.

Agreed but the rest of that roster is trash and Lebron's back is getting to old to carry scrubs.

Lebron on playing in Utah: "I suck here."

I dont personally suck, but my teams suck here.
