The Lakers lack the cohesion of a team that the Celtics have - from running their offense, to getting amazing defensive plays, the Celtics have continually hurt the Lakers with the intagibles: heart and desire (Eye of the Tiger). Winning 2 in a row generally spells doom for the other team, but can the Celtics put it together to get a win at Staples?
Breaking the finals record for 3's in a game, Ray Allen had the eye of the tiger as he took on all comers. No one could slow him down as he shot 8-11 from 3 point range on his way to a 32 point night. For even more basketball: BBALLBREAKDOWN.COM
Here is the first part of our breakdown of Game 2. Some good adjustments, better play all around and Rondo has made his mark early. For even more: http://bballbreakdown.com
With 4:54 left in the game and the Lakers trailing by six, Rockets star center Yao Ming crumbled on the floor after a collision with Bryant.
Yao grabbed his right knee. He cried out in pain. He limped into the tunnel. The Lakers exhaled.
Moments later, after stretching his knee against a wall, Yao ran back onto the court and scored eight points in the final four minutes.
OK, so there was no evidence he was faking it, but still, it felt like Paul Pierce, Part II.
