I have no doubt the lakers will get the better of the calls on Tuesday night but that doesn't guarantee a victory. Anyone who thinks this series is going 7 games, I'd say you have good dreams. Personally, I see the Lakers winning 1 game in this series. I don't think they are mentally stronger than the Celtics, they have not had any adversity in the playoffs until this series and they don't look like they can overcome it either
Curse the Celtics!! May their cockiness get the best of them!!
If Leon powe doesn't show up in game two the Celts lose handedly
Yeah, except the Lakers had NO answer for Leon. Maybe if the Lakers D had shown up, they would've had a chance.
Lakers will destroy the Celtics in LA
Only in Boston does powe get to the line that many times. At times we matched their physicallity(sp), but they got the calls.
Lakers favored by 9 pts! That's kinda huge considering its the Finals.
That surprised me too, Vegas must know something
Ugh. We stumble onto game 3 after a late comeback courtesy of some Celtics complacency.
I hope to God we get the same home-cookin the Celtics got... And than to rub it in the Celtics face will be oh so sweet.
Which unlikely Boston player will get to the freethrow line with unexpected attempts? Besides Powe, I think Perkins, Rondo, or Brown have a chance.
I thought I read Tony Allen had an injury that wouldn't allow him to play before the Finals started. Or did he get a visit from Pierce's angel?
Nobody on this team is strong and quick enough to guard Pierce. Well, besides Odom, but he's busy guarding other people.
I am still confident we can turn this series around. The Celtics have only proven that they are good actors, who have the refs in their pockets...nothing more. GO LAKERS!!!
Salvatore, that's the one that gave us, I mean, that called the jump ball in Game 4 against Phoenix two years ago right? Looks like a good crew, but so did Sunday's. I just hope to God that Delany (sp) isn't calling anymore Finals games.
Pauly P goes into the crowd...someone get the stretcher
If that happened in Boston, pierce would have a stretcher coming for him
Lakers are already in the penalty.. Looks like they actually listened to the coach
As Paul continues to miss watch him grimace and "flex" his knee.. Yeah now the knee is troubling him
THE GREEN LOOK SCARED TONIGHT
Freaking gravity, helping the Celtics...
I'm still seeing TONS of NO CALLS for the Lakers. You know... Like the first two **** plays of the game. These refs are still garbage... UGH.
Boston big 2 1/2 is sucking right now and the game is tied.
Our best and their worse equates to a tie game. How pathetic. Guys such as Rondo, PJ Brown, and Cassell are keeping them in the game.
Lol pj brown....come on farmar he would demolish you.
I honestly think farmar could beat up PJ BROWN
Flopping PJ Brown is so tough!!
Lol, PJ looked like he wants to do something, but then probably said to himself:"****, man, I'm almost 40... I can't be doing this, I could be this dude's dad."
That situation was completely created by pj brown with his girly slaps at the ball
Feel like the reffing this series has been borderline WWE.
Woooo. They call fouls on guys wearing green now.
Thanks a lot for your soft weak D Gasol Perkins just abused you and dunked on your sorry a** and you allowed him to taunt and step all over you.
These Boston Sucks chants needs to be a lot louder. They are much better than lame chant they do in Boston.
We compltely outplayed these guys and we are only up 6????
In case u were wondering why is pierce struggling, only 4 pts so far... Well, if you didn't know, he has been playing with a torn acl and meniscus . . . Yep, miracles happen
Only 4 points between Pierce and Garnett...and we are only up by 4...what a disgrace!!!
Get ready for Hollywood Rondo.
Watch rondo come back roller-skating ....
That ref was going to call a foul on odom and realized Odom was in foul trouble so he changed his mind. That's the NBA for you
Ray Allen is single-handedly KILLING us.
Wow they call us soft... Boston players are tissue-paper, we can't play a game without one of their players hurting themselves.
The NBA where Donaghy disciples happen...probably should have been 4 on Lamar but our free-throw shooting is making it hard for the refs to decide this game.
Truth be told if we were allowed to bang with boson I think we would kill them. They have no one who could bang with ronny or DJ.
Rojon rondo takin the Paul pierce miracle pill, it heals torn ligaments and it can cure aids too...
Its all an act..they exxagerate their injuries so they comeback in less than 3 minutes that way the media can hype them up about being TOUGH.
They pretty much kicked our ass in Boston while we are playing well in LA and they are sucking yet it is a fight just to sustain a lead.
Well there goes the lead....and possibly the series. I'm so ashamed... I don't know what to think anymore.
These guys can't seem to bring it for 48 minutes straight... This is basically a do or die game, and Kobe is the only one who seems to want it. Embrassing.
I thought we were better than this but I guess not. They just seem to be better than us. Oh well might as well get ready for next year.
Shaq just texted Kobe saying "This is why you will never win without me."
This is like watching two old people gum each other to death... Not the finest example of NBA basketball you'll ever see.
Something inside tells me we win this game, we win this series. I think an angel is talking to me.
Garnett has given at least 3 illegal screens in the 2nd half... Such BS
The Boston Celtics lose to sasha vujacic and Kobe Bryant here at staples center.... There was no lakers tonight...there was 2 people....vs the Celtics!
2-1! Finally we beat Boston this season
I would like to sum up this game with this picture
Great pic, all 5 Celtics in shock and awe.
An ugly win, but it couldn't have come at a better time. They got the monkey off their backs and know they can beat this team
Why does PJ Brown get so much love from the refs? He practically ripped Gasol's arm off, and no call??
Boston's road record is 2-8, and I don't think anything changes, and I think we go to Boston up 3-2..
Are you serious?? The Celtics had zero offense, Pierce had one of the 5 worst games of his career, Garnett couldn't hit the broad side of a barn and they barely won.. The Lakers shouldn't feel too good about this one.
This should be giving Boston a very sleepless night. Their PG situation isn't good at all. Cassell and House will get outhustled by the likes of Farmar and Fisher. And Pierce didn't exactly look refreshed. This puts pressure on KG and Ray Allen to carry the offensive load and both sides of the floor.
Pierce - sprained knee Perkins- sprained ankle Rondo - sprained ankle Cassell - sprained wrist PJ Brown - old age Celtics are in trouble.
House is a better shooter but his PG skills aren't that great at all. Rondo is the one that really get's the Gobblin's team offense going. I don't care whether he is 75% or 100%, we have to go at him and attack him. If we can continue to make him struggle, the Gobblin's offense will struggle to score.
When its a fairly officiated game, the Lakers will win 99.9455% of the time lol.... Props on the refs for letting the players decide the game.
