The Lakers ran out to a 22 point lead in the first half and cruised to a 111-96 win over the Utah Jazz on Monday night, knocking the Jazz out of the playoffs for the 3rd straight year.  Kobe Bryant scored 32 points while Pau Gasol had 33 points and 14 rebounds for the Lakers, who dominated the second quarter offensively and defensively to put the Jazz in a hole that was too big to get out of.

The Lakers will host the Phoenix Suns next Monday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals
