Why The Jazz Are Done

One part of tonight's Jazz-Lakers game stands out: The Lakers' length. In everyday life people are measured by height to the top of the head, but in the NBA they really should be measured to the top of the outstretched hand. They measure this before the draft, but apparently only for players not on the Lakers or Jazz, so that doesn't help. What would help though, is the return of Andrei Kirilenko and Mehmet Okur for the Jazz. They are the number 2 and 4 rebounders and number 1 and 3 shot blockers for the Jazz, and will help supplement the 6'7" average duo of Paul Millsap and Carlos Boozer against the 7'0" average duo of Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol. Right now the Lakers have a 77.2% chance of winning the series, and without the return of Kirilenko and Okur (possible for game 3) it's only gonna go up.
