Utah Jazz coach Jerry Sloan watched his team get crushed by the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday and feared the worst when the two teams meet in the first round of the NBA Playoffs later this week, according to the Los Angeles Times.
"We didn't give them much of a battle, knowing we have to play them again," said Utah Coach Jerry Sloan. "It looks pretty bleak. . . .
"They have a terrific team. They have guys who can pass the ball, do about anything you ask a team to do. They've got guys who can make big shots, who just know how to play the game, make the game look simple. . . .
"We're just like a little dent in the road, far as they're concerned. They're very comfortable playing against us and obviously should be."
