After a long-awaited breathtaking heart-beating emotional breakout Game, the Boston Celtics dropped the LA Lakers 92-86, the series became 3-2, Game 6 is in the Staples Center, Los Angeles.
First and foremost, we're all (Lakers fans) bitter about tonight's loss... :'(
We should realize that the series is not over yet. Well, for both teams, and both teams' fans, every win has provided good reason to think the series will end with a positive outcome, and every loss provides plenty of reason to panic.
Hate to say this but this game pretty much showing us (Lakers') who the better team is. The Celtics are just great and disciplined defensively and while we just aren't good enough. Those guys play together as a TEAM at all times, including crunch-time while our guys tense-up and completely fold -- except for Kobe.
The point is, you don't know anything about how tonight's game is going to play out. No one does. Anyone representing themselves as having foresight into the events that will transpire is full of it, and if they happen to be right, it will be dumb luck. There is no analyzing a series like this. Kobe could go for 40 and carry the Lakers to victory.
So could Paul Pierce. Lamar Odom can single handedly win or lose the game for the Lakers with his play. So could Garnett. Ray Allen could hit every shot he takes, or none of them. The Celtics bench could fail to outplay the Lakers bench, or they could outplay the Lakers starters.
The Celtics made nine freebies all night -- Boston's shooting proficiency and ability to answer Kobe's second half output kept it in control for most of the contest. Rajon Rondo overcame many of the shoots and, you know, he played as RONDO and he was great in the Game 5.
When Kobe was asked if he'd have anything to say to his teammates as they prepare to try and extend their season on the next Game 6 in Staples Center, LA (HOME! finally...) Kobe said:
"Just man up and play. What the hell is the big deal? I don't see it as a big deal. If I have to say something to them, then we don't deserve to be champions. We're down 3-2, go home, win one game, go into the next one. Simple as that."
We need to ride the storm and be positive!
PURPLE &GOLD LAKERS KEEP GOING!
REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE THE LAKERS?
Get on it!
You guys pull the trigger in the Game 6 as
