Celtics-Lakers in Trouble?
Don’t prepare for the Lakers-Celtics finals just however. Monday night in Boston, the Black Irish could not send Superman and the Orlando Magic fishin’ just however as Rajon Rondo was finally outplayed at the point guard position by his style Jameer Nelson. The Big 3 for the Celtics along with Dwight Howard, Vince Carter, and Rashard Lewis are the Magic’s version of the “Big 3” but the meaningful to this series starts and end with the Nelson vs. Rondo battle. Paul Pierce missed two 3 point shot under a minute to play but the biggest question is why didn’t Ray Allen take that final shot. If the Magic win a pivotal game 5 tomorrow, expect this series to got the distance.
The Lakers took the Suns lightly and now find themselves tied 2-2 against Phoenix. The Stoudamire & Nash combination was OK but the bench for Los Suns were the deciding factor tonight. Kobe Bryant is probably giving his teammates a good lashing as he was the only offensive force for the defending champs. Phil Jackson’s crew is only.500 on the road but great when playing at the Staples Center.
Tonight the Magic return home hoping to obtain a victory and send the game back to Boston for Game 6. For Orlando to win, Vince Carter needs to have a flashback return to the UNC-Toronto Raptors version of himself and play extremely aggressive straight from tip-off.
I’m nevertheless predicting a Celtics-Lakers finals but it’s just taking a little bit longer.
