Man, this is going to be an entertaining series. What a frenzy in the 1st quarter. 37-35 after one.

I doubt Utah will want to play at this pace all night.

FYI: Sloan's first playoff series as Jazz coach came in the '89 first round against Golden State. Utah had homecourt but were swept by G-State 3-0.

Wow. This is old school up and down the court NBA basketball. 66-63 Warriors at the half.

Was pulling for Golden State last night. They came out on the short end, but wow, what a game.

I think (hope) that was the last 10:30 game ...

Great coaching matchup in this series. Heard on the radio on the way in that last nights game was the 1st time in NBA history that two coaches with over 1,000 wins met up against one another in the playoffs.

Who would you rather have now? Deron Williams or Chris Paul.

Deron Williams. No question in my mind right now. Chris Paul is a great player, but Deron Williams can run a team. Could you imagine this Cavs team right now with Williams running the point? Sasha would come off the bench, Hughes would play some minutes at PG when Williams wasn't in, and Eric Snow wouldn't see the light of day.

I think Williams is a better fit for Utah and most teams but Paul is an extraordinary player. Anyway, Williams would be a better fit for the Cavs

Great, great series. THIS is playoff basketball at its best.

Golden State throwing this one away late with poor FT shooting. Looks like it is heading to OT unless GS hits a big shot here with 2 seconds left.

Jazz v Cavaliers Finals anyone?

Jazz doing there thing, whatever that is.

Would be very fitting and IMO just part of the easiest road to the NBA finals for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Jazz would be a tough matchup.....although anyone in the Finals would be if we got that far. But, the Jazz would neutralize what we do so well, which is rebound. Would be a great series though.

Man, Jazz/Warriors fans are getting a treat so far this series. Reminds me of the Cavs/Wiz series from last year a lot.....just great high energy, high scoring games.
