What makes that second-round exit even more disappointing is that Los Angeles won the last two games in the series after things were tied 2-2 without Kawhi Leonard.

Utah is mostly bringing back the same roster as they will look to make a run in the Western Conference again this season. But, there were rumors that the team could look to shake things up.
