LOS ANGELES -- When a Phil Jackson coached team wins Game 1 of a series, they are unstoppable. Jackson teams are 47-0 when they win the first game of a series no matter the length.

But the history doesn't give Jackson any sense of relief.

"I wish I felt that way," Jackson said. "I wish I had put it in the bank, so to speak. We've got to play this out, and we know this is a team that's got a multitude of changes, line-ups, activities, capabilities. ... So we've got a lot of work ahead of us, but it's nice to know that that's on our side."
