On May, 4 the Utah Jazz lost to the Lakers 111-103 in a hard fought battle till the end. Now, in this seven game series, the Lakers have the upper hand, winning the first two games. Game Three will be on May 8 at 8:00 in Utah. There are five games left, so maybe the Jazz can pull off a upset and come back to pull the series back to 2-2.
For the Jazz the two main contributors to the scoring department were C.J Miles with 20 points and veteran forward Carlos Boozer who also had 20 points. The rest of the starters for the Utah Jazz were Wesley Matthews with 14 points, Kyrylo Fesenko with 2 points, and Deron Williams with 15 points. All together the Jazz played a good game. There were no really weak points at all. They played hard, but in the end they were out played by a better team.
For the Lakers Kobe Bryant was the leading scorer with his game high 30 points. Paul Gasol also contributed 22 points and Andrew Bynum had 22 points. But those two big men down low got a lot of the rebounds for the Lakers, giving the team even more chances. Combined Gasol and Bynum had 29 rebounds, and half of them were offensive, giving the Lakers extra shots.
Now that the Kobe Byrant and the Lakers have a two game lead the Jazz, they just need to win in Utah. Utah and the home fans will make playing there hard. But if the Lakers rebounding as they did the first two games, it will almost be impossible to win
