<div align="center"><span style="font-size:24pt;line-height:100%">Utah Jazz vs. Golden State Warriors</span></div><div align="center"><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%"><span style="font-family:Arial Black">Game one - Wednesday May 9th</span></div></span><span style="font-size:14pt;line-height:100%">Starters:Utah Jazz:</span><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%"><span style="font-family:Comic Sans MS">PG - Deron Williams - 16.5-8.5-5Importance - The light 6'3" 205 pound Williams must attempt to outmuscle and outhustle the active hands of davis. The turnover happy guard must keep said turnovers to a minimum, as he'll be guarded by three of the league's 20 best thieves, including the league leader in steals primarily, and must not play into the Warriors' game. If he can keep up his rebounds it'll be benificial as that way he takes away the Warriors' advantage of rebounding guards.SG - Derek Fisher - Playoff Stats - 9.5-2Importance - ummmmm...... stay off the court and don't try to play with the big boys. Don't take any shots or get any turnovers and try not to get burnt. I have an inkling that Harpring will start.SF - Andrei Kirilenko - 5-3-2Importance - Needs to be the AK47 of old, which he has done a couple times this past series. Will have to play more perimeter defense than normal.PF - Carlos Boozer - 25-11Importance - He's gonna get his points, but he needs to ablsolutely dominate the boards, and keep the pace going to Utah's favor. He also needs to keep the turnovers down, I could see him averaging 3 per game this series, and is gonna have to hope Matt Barnes' shot isn't dropping as there's no way he can keep up with him on the perimeter.C - Mehmet Okur - 11-8-1.5-1.5Importance - Pretty much the same as Boozer's imperative, dominate and force the Warriors to play at their pace.</span><span style="font-size:14pt;line-height:100%">Coming off The Bench:Matt Harpring - one of the Keys to Utah's success, he dominates the Warriors every time they play. I think he'll start.Gordan Giricek - continue to shoot the lights out in his limited minutes.Millsap/Collins - Play slowly for your few minutes.Rounding out the Keys for Utahace. Pace. And more pace. They and the Warriors are both teams relying on offense, the difference is that Utah relies on efficiency to their offense and the Warriors rely on speed. The Jazz are a mediocre defensive team so if it gets into a shootout the Warriors can score 130 points on them.X Factor - Deron Williams - If he can't stop Baron, and can't keep his turnovers down, the Warriors will be able to run them into the ground. He needs to play slow grind it out Utah ball and take care of the ball. <span style="font-size:14pt;line-height:100%">Starters:Golden State Warriors:</span><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%">PG - Baron Davis - 25-6-6-2Importance - Be healthy. That's all we need. If Baron has healthy legs we can get up on them early and that's that. If he's limited we'll have a tough time of it. And keep grabbing the rebounds.SG - Jason Richardson - 20-7Importance - Continue with the rebounds, we need all the boards we can get. And murder _Erek Fissure, and play good defense on Harpring.SF - Stephen Jackson - 23-5-4Importance - Keep up the boards, and keep playing like an allstar. Ideally get AK47 into foul trouble.PF - Matt Barnes - 10-6-3Importance - Continue this great play until Monta and/or Harrington gets into their groove. If Matt can nail some threes on Boozer it'll be tough for them to stop us without a zone, which of course we can pick apart.C - Andris Biedrins - 7-5Importance - Play like you did later on in the series and box out for once in your life.Coming off The Bench:</span>Monta Ellis - PG - Get into your A game and take your starting spot back. You can dominate Fisher and get Baron some rest.Michael Pietrus - SF - Continue your strong play of the last couple games. nail some threes to spread out their defense.Al Harrington - C - Stop choking; if we can get him to start at center we'll be unstoppable.X Factor:Matt Barnes - He's often the glue guy to a bunch of runs. He needs to cut the ball off from Boozer as best as possible and shred him on offense as we know he can.</span><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%">Key Matchup:Barnes vs. Boozer</span><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%">It's this matchup where the pace of the game will be decided and the pace of the game is what will decide the game.</span></span><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%">Prediction:Warriors over Jazz: 111-98</span><span style="font-size:12pt;line-height:100%">The Warriors will make some early threes and get an early lead and from that point it's smooth sailing. Utah is a good come from ahead team, but cannot make a comeback once they're losing by a significant amount as they can't push the pace. I think we'll make some early threes and they won't be able to recover. It'll either be 111-98 warriors or 97-93 Jazz if Baron isn't healthy.</span>I might change this later, but as of now I don't think anything has changed my opinion on anybody since three days ago so the same preview is appropriate. I'm just too floored with stuff to do to make one today.
