Lakers wrap up Round One and eliminate a tough Jazz team

  Like a cat teasing it's prey, the Lakers let the Jazz back into the game in the fourth quarter, then pounced and put their opponent down.

  The final score was 107-96 Lakers. Now they get to sit back, after closing out the 1st round of the playoffs 4-1, and wait for the winner of the Portland vs Houston series. Houston leads 3-1.

  There's no doubt in my mind that Andrew Bynum isn't ready to play yet. He's looked horrible in the first round. Fortunately, other Lakers are stepping up for the playoffs.

  Lamar Odom has been a monster and finished last nights game with 26 points and 15 rebounds. Kobe...well he was Kobe with 31 points, and a lot of acrobatic moves. It doesn't look good for Walton however.

  Team doctors say he has a partly torn ligament in his ankle. It's too bad because he was playing tough and smart ball. Ariza looked like his usual hustling self after a poor game four.

  It was a hard fought series that got chippy at times. In a rare ejection for him, Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, had to head for the locker room during the final two minutes of play. The Jazz proved to be a rough and tumble opponent.
