I wouldn't be surprised if Phil doesn't play Kobe the rest of the game. Time to head home and regroup.

Lakers are going to need 3 straight.

The Celtics go "Harlem Globetrotter" to score the final dunk of the quarter

I think Phil Jackson is getting his pants coached off. Just about the only thing that has worked for LA in this series is getting Gasol touches in the post, and when was the last time Gasol got a touch in the post? The Lakers have consistently failed to close out defensive posessions due to poor rotations and the non-contesting of Boston's perimeter shooters. I'm amazed a team with legitimate title aspirations could leave Paul Pierce wide open as may times as the Lakers have in these first two games. In the first half, simply making sure a foul stopped a basket would have saved LA half a dozen points. Maybe they figure it out for game 3, but I'm starting to doubt it...

Gotta give it to the Celts. Their defensive adjustments for every run are just superb.

Still. Lakers in 6! =)

I've been watching the Lakers for 23 years, and I'm beginning to think this is worse than either the '89 sweep by Detroit (we had players injured), or the '91 near-sweep by the Bulls (we had players injured plus we were old). This is just a good old fashioned ass-whipping.

Believe me when I say this...If I say this series looks worse than the '91 series, that's awful. I still haven't gotten over that series, and it's been 17 years.
