Oklahoma City vs. Utah
The Utah jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder have a lot to play for tonight. The Jazz are currently 1/2 game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Western conference while the Thunder trail San Antonio by a game for the #1 seed. OKC was embarrassed by New York on Sunday and I'm sure they will come out in full force to re-establish their presence of authority. Western conference giants don't like to lose to Eastern conference teams unless it's Miami. Utah on the other hand would like to keep their foot on the throats of the Lakers and make them re-evaluate their entire situation going forward. Although the game is more important to the Jazz I think the talent level of the Thunder will be too much for them to overcome. The Thunder will win a close one.
