This is my first game preview, so bear with me if it needs a bit of fine tuning, and be sure to let me know if there are any features that you would like to become regular fixtures in future preview posts. Game thread will be live shortly before the game, and in the meantime, feel free to weigh in on what you see happening tonight.
Lakers: Derek Fisher, Kobe Bryant, Trevor Ariza, Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum
Jazz: Deron Williams, Matt Harpring, Ronnie Brewer, Carlos Boozer, Jarron Collins (?)
- Shooters be ready to hit open jump shots
- Bigs and slashers take challenge, push back
- Take Deron Williams out of the game, make others beat you
- Come out strong, crush their spirits immediately, and get the starters out of the game as early as possible
