I'm gonna be very disappointed if we lose this, even if it is a road game vs a division rival. Not so much because I like to start off with a win, of course, but Denver is down 2 key components (Kmart and Birdman I believe). In yrs past we've seen the Jazz play down to the level of competition either vs bad teams, or good teams missing key cogs. It is something i've harped on for yrs as it has cost us higher seeding . Lets see if they come out tonight and do what they're supposed to do, i don't wanna be too dramatic but it might be a good indicator.

I think Nene/Al will be a good indicator of whether Al is truly a better player than boozer. Nene was eating the Jazz bigs up during the regular season last year. Lets see what happens this year.

True, and it shows how much of that was simply an effort&intensity issue as once the playoffs started Boozer thoroughly outplayed Nene before Nene hurt his knee late in the series. Jefferson may still be feeling his way around in the offense but I expect him to start the season with great energy and intensity.

It will also be interesting to see if CJ can continue to play Melo reasonably tough like he did in games 2-6, but they'll definiely be calling things alot closer to start the season.

This match up makes me excited. Not erection excited, but excited nevertheless.

This gunna be a BIGTIME beatdown. After this game, terrifying visions of the Jazz may replace those of Nate Robinson in Marshmello's nightmares, know what I'm sayin?

Hopper, you must be incredibly angered now that homophobic comments are no longer allowed on this forum.
