Lakers-Utah Game 5 Count Down

The Lakers return to Los Angeles to face the Jazz for Game Five of their second round series in what figures to be the most important game of the playoffs so far for the boys in purple and gold.

The series sits at 2-2 but the Lakers have some formidable statistics on their side: only one team (Magic) has lost a game on its home court during the second round of the playoffs, and, even more favorable, Phil Jackson has never lost a playoff series in which his team has won the first game, which the Lakers did.

I'll be perched here blogging some observations at the end of each quarter. Feel free to join me for heavily biased commentary.
