All season, the Jazz were the team no one wanted to play in the playoffs. So you wouldn’t have blamed the Lakers if they didn’t give 100 percent in the season finale Tuesday night at Staples Center…. Except that the Lakers gave about 110 percent in blasting the Jazz back to Salt Lake City.
This one turned into a rout, with the Lakers clearly stating that they don’t care who their playoff opponent is.
Game 1 will be either Saturday or Sunday at Staples Center.
