Last night, the LA Lakers got the job done. It’s as simple as that. Boston had a very early lead and things were looking good until the Lakers shut down the Celtics.
Kevin Garnett was the only bright spot for the Celtics last night. He started the game great and then Boston fans were scratching their heads when Doc Rivers took KG out of the game… he was on fire!
Another issue Boston fans had was that Rajon Rondo too was out of the game a lot in the first half. If Boston is going to win, they need more from Rondo.
Derek Fisher controlled the game while he was in and the big guys fro LA also wouldn’t back down on Boston. In the 4th quarter, the Celtics had made a come back but still fell short after some questionable calls and flakey fouls. The refs seem to be calling the fouls on one side, not both. Perhaps that is the league trying to force a game 7 for more income (tickets, television, advertising, press, etc).
