2008 NBA Finals – Celtics v. Lakers – No contest

Posted by TopOfTheThread on June 5, 2008

* It is now the 1st quarter of game #1 of the NBA Finals. Boston leads LA 19 – 14. *

***************************Kobe Bryan NBA Lakers star

Nothing magical or shocking here…

For the Lakers to win, they need Bryant, Odom, and Gasol to take it to the hoop at every opportunity. The 3 are talented and too long for the Celtics. When the opportunity arises, they should kick it out to Derek Fisher. This strategy will get Garnett (et al) in foul trouble and put the Lakers on the line.

For the Celtics to win, Garnett and Pierce need to take it hard to the hoop. Ray Allen needs to hit his j’s (which he finally hit his shots in game #7 of the Pistons series.) Rondo needs to continue to play like a top tier point guard.

What will happen? No contest. The Lakers will handily win the series. Some of the games will be close but the Lakers will win the series 4 games to 1.

What would have happened if the Spurs had beat the Lakers in the western conference finals? The Spurs would have beaten the Celtics 4 games to 2.

Sorry Celtics. Congratulations on a good year.

  2. hmmmmm. Congrats to Boston after game #1. We’ll see….

  3. Paul-freaking-Pierce. When he went down in a heap the entire season flashed before my eyes. That standing ovation he received coming back onto the court was electric! Think he wants this one much?

  4. Celtics look tough!
