After struggling to consistently play to their potential in the opening round against the 8th seeded Oklahoma City Thunder, the 15-time NBA champion Lakers appear to have finally found that extra gear everyone has talked about so much. “We're there. We've got it,” Kobe Bryant said. “The competition from Oklahoma, probably. That's probably what did it.”
Nevertheless, this Lakers team understands that the same way that they were able to build momentum and are trying to maintain it, the same can happen in any series at any given time. “They're not going to quit,” stated former Jazz guard, Derek Fisher. “If we don't beat them they'll just continue to take it one game at a time and try and work their way back in the series.”
Closing out the Jazz tonight will be extremely vital, as the Lakers don’t want to give this team any sense of confidence or new life. “You never know what can happen in a series,” Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said. “You extend a series, ankles can get turned, knuckles can get bruised, knowing there's things like that.”
