So here's something no one could have expected: A second-round playoff series between Golden State and Utah that's destined to be thrilling, amazing to watch and go the full seven games. Utah won Game 1, but, as we watched the game early this morning while shaking off our Arcade Fire hangover, we were struck by how fluid the game was. These teams are a joy to behold; if you had the idea that the Jazz were just running the picket fence every time down the court, you're thinking of the wrong Jazz. Even the Golden State fans don't seem that upset. This is going to be another one of those series we don't want to see end.

Meanwhile, uh ... the Bulls know the series has started, yes?
