Boston/Lakers Series 2-1

I am not a sore loser because it would not be NBA basketball if the Los Angeles Lakers did not get at least one win off of the Boston Celtics (I will get to their bad playing in a minute).

I am not a fan of the Lakers unless you are talking about the great ones, Magic, Kareem etc. The Lakers came out with big guns last night. Kobe had to get nothing less than 30 points and he did that by end with 36. One thing I am surprised about was how the officials refereed Lamar Odom. Granted since the beginning of this series, the Celtics have ensured that Lamar Odom gets into foul trouble early. But the officials have called some very strange calls against him. For those who watched the game. In the last minute of the game, a charge was called against Lamar Odom when his defender was moving and not standing still to get the charge.

Onto the Celtics, what can I say, two of the big three played like garbage. Yeah I could sit here and say they had an off night. But now is not the time to make excuses from. This is the championships we are dealing with here. Kevin Garnett, all of sudden you don't know how to shot the rock and you want to pass to your teammates. I need you to leave the passing to your guards and stuff the rock in the basket. He was given the chance two times but it was not enough. Paul Pierce, I have no words.

I will say this to close, I have been looking at NBA games and championships and this industry is about money. Don't let anyone tell you different. The players and officials are pushed to make sure these games go the distant or seven games.

Let me know what you thought about the game.
I see Celtics winning either 4-1 or 4-2.

Unfortunately, I was making both soap and bath fizzies during the game. I kept going into the living room to check on things.

I think this team is all heart, particularly K.G. It was an "adjustment" game, I figure. They've not been very consistent during playoff road games (unless you count losing), but if they win the next game, L.A.'s back will be up against the wall.

Oh you know it is on tonight for the Lakers. Boston will be victorious tonight.

Back from a 20+ deficit to tie, then WIN!

All I can say is, I feel bad for my downstairs neighbors.

C's all the way!
