The Utah Jazz Must Adopt A Boxer’s Mentality

April 5th, 2010 by TIM PETERSON Leave a reply »

On a night when Kobe Bryant agreed to a three-year $90 million extension to remain a Laker for life, the Utah Jazz looked like a Mike Tyson punching dummy, absorbing a 106-92 beatdown at Staples Center.


The Jazz didn't just lose a game, it may have lost its postseason mojo.


Even more troubling for Utah's playoff prospects is the fact that they were dominated by LA again, without Kobe performing at his peak.


Against the demure Jazz, the Lakers icon scored just 25 points on 5-of-23 shooting. Kobe forced the action with a parade of Jazz fouls, converting on 15-of-18 from the charity stripe.
