These are the Jazz cheerleaders. I swear! Only in Utah. Only. In. Utah.

Warriors: 28-51
Jazz: 47-32
Tip-Off: 6:00 PM PST
TV: CSN
Radio: KNBR 680

Tomorrow's game is a win-win situation for me. No matter what happens I'll be happy with the outcome. Here's why:

1) Warriors win = Jazz play Lakers in the first round
The Jazz are currently in the 8th playoff spot, 1 game behind the Mavs. The Lakers have already clinched the #1 spot. If there's a team I least want to see in the playoffs, it's the Jazz. Not only because I'm still bitter about the Jazz knocking the Warriors out of the playoffs a couple years ago, but because well I just can't stand that team ever since Stockton and Malone. So seeing them have to face the Lakers in the first round, means they'll be packing their bags early for the offseason.

Call it being a sore loser, call it being a hater, call it whatever you want, I just don't want the Jazz to be in the playoffs. They're boring and nobody likes them. They're a ratings disaster. And if the Warriors win and help keep the Jazz in that 8th spot, I'm happy.

2) Warriors lose = Warriors hold on to the 7th lottery spot
Right now, the Warriors are 2 games ahead of the Raptors and 2.5 games ahead of the Knicks for the 7th lottery spot with 3 games to go. I'm not sure what the tiebreakers are but there's a good chance the Warriors don't win 2 of the next 3 (@ Utah, vs San Antonio, @ Phoenix). So as long as the Warriors don't win 2 of those 3, they're a lock for the 7th spot. Lucky number 7 right? Blake Griffin would look so nice in a Warrior uni.

I fully expect the Warriors to lose. The Jazz record at home is a palindrome for the Warriors record on the road, 32-7. Throw in that the Warriors will probably be down to 4 players due to injuries and it's a recipe for a loss. Still, I'll be happy no matter what happens.
