The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Utah Jazz in game 1 of their playoff series, but some people are still mad at coach Phil Jackson.

The Los Angeles Lakers may have won game 1 of their NBA Western Conference semifinal playoff series, but some folks still think that Phil Jackson is Frankenstein (katchop)

From Bleacher Report

The Lakers $12 million dollar head coach made a serious miscalculation.  After the starters had ended both the second and third quarters with an eight-point margin, he put in the reserves to begin the fourth quarter.

Then Phil Jackson sat back calmly and watched his reserves go on an 0-for-9 binge as the Jazz not only cut the Lakers lead but took over the game.  It was under seven minutes when he finally put Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol and Derek Fisher back in the game.

Here they had built a lead.  Now Jackson was asking them to go in the game cold and build another lead against a team that was suddenly hot.

So much for the vacation, the siesta, or the intermission as one writer had put it.

The Lakers not only had to work to try to win a game that they already had won.  But Bryant, Gasol and Lamar Odom had to work doubly hard to get back adrenalin and their swagger back and overcome a four-point deficit.
