Roadie Losers

The Jazz are 0-10 when playing on the road against Western Conference playoff contending teams (this includes games versus Phoenix also). Stated succinctly... we can't beat playoff teams on the road! Will we make a break-through tonight? Can we steal a couple of road games from our last 5 (@ Denver, @ New Orleans, @ Dallas, @ San Antonio, & @ LA Lakers)?

Unfortunately, it didn't happen on Tuesday versus Portland. The Jazz got blitzed from the opening tip-off and never challenged Portland all night. Sloan got tossed. Boozer got tossed. And the Jazz got blasted by a young, hungry Trail Blazer squad. Can we bounce back tonight?

We need to, although honestly I'd take the 6 or the 7 over the 4 or the 5 right now, especially if the Spurs keep slipping. It's possible that we could be the 6 and open with Houston, then play Denver at the 2 in the next round if we won. That ain't a bad draw. . . said...

To my mind everybody have to glance at this.
