Although I hope game 1 is an indication of how the rest of this series goes, It never ceases to amaze me how quick people are willing to conclude a series on the basis of one game. Role player always play well at home and Phoenix has a big advantage in that dept.

Anyway healthy Denver would be a better matchup. Dallas on paper looks tough but that team always disappoints compared to what they are on paper. I'm sure the Lakers woulda rolled over them.

I wouldn't say the Jazz didn't show up, they played the Lakers better than the Suns did tonight, and they were missing 2 starters. Hell the Jazz only lost by single digits the first 3 games and only by 15 when it didn't matter.

OKC will be the only one to take them to 6.

2nd best in a NBA by default. Great rivalry developing! Lol :)

Healthy Portland, because we can contain them in the paint with Oden, Camby, Billa and Aldridge. We are the only team who can keep up with them inside. So next season, healthy Blazers and we can do it.

Every other team in the West, has far too weak of a frontcourt when you think about it.
