Default WC PLAYOFFS; ROUND 1: (5) UTAH JAZZ defeat the (4) DEN NUGGETS 4-2

STARTERS:

DEN

Chauncey Billups
Aaron Afflalo
Carmelo Anthony
Kenyon Martin
Nene

UTA

Deron Williams
Wes Matthews
Andrei Kirilenko
Carlos Boozer
Mehmet Okur

KEY ROTATION PLAYERS:

DEN

Ty Lawson
JR Smith
Chris Anderson


UTA

Kyle Korver
CJ Miles
Paul Millsap


Key Matchups:

Billups vs Williams. This is going to be an amazing matchup. Williams will most likely win it, but Billups really has to regain his form and keep this matchup close as he hasnt been playing well the past month+ as the season has winded down.

Carmelo Anthony vs the free throw line. Utah plays a very physical brand of D, and the games these 2 teams have played have resulted in a FT fest. They need to keep Melo and co off the line as much as possible to have any real chance. Make them make shots.

The frontcourts. Utahs frontcourt has to take advantage of Kmart not being 100% and really attack the boards and the paint.


PREDICTION:
This should be a great matchup so long as it doesnt turn into another 80 free throws attempted total borefest. The fans of the teams hate eachother, and both crowds are electric, so it should make for great games. Whoever can play better defence and keep the other team off the line wins. DEN in 7

Denver didn't close the season out well, Utah ended the season on fire. I'm picking Utah in 6 on that fact alone.

Huge win for Utah last night. Denver made some horrible decisions last night, especially Melo with his 6th foul. Its gonna be really tough for DEN to win in Utah.

Not sure why I continue to watch this game. Denver/Melo need to get stops/make a push asap or its game over!
