    The game is about runs. How can you find the hot hand if you are working 5 guys ?
    The balanced attack may keep a Dee guessing. But if you can't stop 1 guy, some one is in deep doogy.

    g26, you weren't expecting Flip to adjust on the fly were you? He couldn't adjust his fly on the fly.

    You know this series does show one thing. Team D is not overrated at all, and ours sucks.

    I mean the Celtics are guarding Kobe with Ray Allen. Ray freakin' Allen. It's beautiful what cutting off penetration will do.

    Just as I suspected the Laker afternoon radio guys are complaining more than the Piston Forum guys did after game 3 and 6 of the Piston series..

    They are relying of Flea (of the Red hot Chili Peppers) to rally the team and fans...
    Most suspected that game 1 was a a fluke and the Lakers would rebound and take games 2-6...:sssh::)

    Even James Worthy went off on some Laker postgame show.

    And it's all over the media. The Power of the Phil Jackson press conference. :gun1:

    Kendrik Perkins stats against the Odom- Soft Gasol frontline make me :swear2:

    Stupid perimeter defenders.

    edited to add;

    I realize what makes the Celtics so great. It's the fact that KG holds moves, shoves, grabs ON EVERY SINGLE SCREEN HE SETS. All they have to run is the pick and roll with KG/PP or KG/Allen, and they will always get a good attempt.

    Time to fire Phil Jackson, blow up the Lakers, and trade Kobe Bryant for Deron Williams and a late 2nd round draft pick.

    ^

    So much for that.

    KG 6-21
    PP 2-14

    The Lakers are a better defensive team than us :sssh:

    KG got called for a moving screen at the end of the game!! And the announces mentioned how he got away with several illegal screens earlier, but at the time they were happening called them great screens KG. :stooges:

    edited to add; i feel dirty for watching it, but i only watched the last 6-7 min so i guess thats a little better.

    You don't think Sheed could get away with those screens?

    Lakers have to win one more to match us, and two more to claim to be better.

    Phil won the game. He studied the Celtic offense and they got out on the shooters at all cost. The Celts had trouble scoring. We never made adjustments like that. Can the Lakers keep it up? Doubtful as their personnel is just not that good after Kobe.

    I only saw the last 4 mins, but you cannot leave Sasha open outside the 3 point arc...that is his game...The Lakers may have won a lotta of games with kobe and Gasoft, but it was Sasha that would get them back in it or keep them in it with those timely threes and he would shoot more than Sheed if he started.

    Looking at the box score, the Celtics won every category with the exception of the shooting %. so the difference in the game was Pierce not hitting anything and Sasha more than expected. What happen to Rondo, was he injured?? Do the Celtics comeback and Pierce plays better in game 4 or do the Lakers take this win as a momentum changer?

    Isn't Turiaf supposed to be the Lakers version of Maxiell?

    In 19 minutes last night, he had 0 point, 0 rebounds, 0 assists, and 3 fouls. Nice playing!

    Also, it is pretty ridiculous to think that Kobe had only 1 assist last night, considering how many touches he got. He really needs to work on his passing.

    But they [STRIKE]steal[/STRIKE] still won and the folks here in LA are not only ecstatic, but are now thinking Lakers in six. I think they were just lucky as the Celtics still had a chance to win this game with less than 90 seconds to go, If not for the Sasha corner bomb..
