Game over.

Sure the refs have been bad, but things like not giving up on plays and remembering to box out are obviously just as crucial here. They must have thought they were going to waltz through and be done with it.

NBA fans are some of the biggest **** crybabies imaginable. And it's no team's fans in particular. It's just the whole culture of NBA fandom. It's pathetic, you don't see other sports fan whining all the time.

Grow up and shut up, there's no fix.

If you compiled a book on NBA fans complaining about the refs, it would be longer than the Bible and all the Harry Potter books combined.

The NBA is not fixed. Never. In fact the refs are not even allow to gamble.

Boston is just better. Rondo is the best PG in the league. See ya next year! :lol:

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...
