SPEAKING
``It's an incredible night to have 23 foul shots. I know that Utah's not going to be happy about it. We'll probably see about half that in the next game, if not less. So for him to do that, it was our biggest scoring threat of the night right there.'' - Lakers coach Phil Jackson on Kobe Bryant, who shot 21-of-23 from the foul line in a 109-98 win over the Jazz in Game 1 of their second-round playoff series on Sunday.
