K Bros. PodKast: Buttoning up OKC, previewing Utah

By Brian Kamenetzky

So the guy responsible for processing our show into the fancy ESPN player doesn't work weekends, and meanwhile the blogging software we use is remarkably hostile to uploading mp3 files.

That leaves today's workaround, the results of which can be seen below.

We talk about the end of the series vs. Oklahoma City, and how those six games could benefit the Lakers moving forward, assuming they didn't make too many withdrawals from their home financial institution, the Bank of Already Tenuous Physical Condition. (We actually recorded before the news broke about Andrew Bynum's small meniscus tear.) From there, it's a preview of their next series, starting Sunday at home against Utah (12:30 pm PT, ABC).

The Jazz are playing well, but despite their savvy and veteran experience, we both believe they're a far more favorable matchup for the Lakers than the Thunder were. And with Deron Williams a gametime decision and Andrei Kirilenko out until perhaps Game 3, Jerry Sloan's crew has injury issues of their own.

All that, plus a considered debate regarding a pivotal moment in The Fugitive, about which your input is welcome.
