Lakers vs. Celtics Part 2

Here we go again.
Painful as it was for me, I applaud the Lakers performance. Even though Kobe was anti-clutch, his teammates picked up during the end of the 4th and OT to lead them to victory. He did knock the ball out of Pierce's hands during regulation forcing House to chuck up an ugly three that burned my eyes. Anyways, a couple notes on the game. Celtics played with Garnett in the lineup after his brief recovery period. Lakers were would think it would be a repeat of last year's finals. Think again..LA proved their toughness as they were down for a majority of the game. They have gained something this year that they lacked previously - willpower. Oh, and the Lakers have stopped both of the longest winning streaks in the NBA (Celtics 19 game streak and 12 game streak).

Check out the Basketball Jones w/ JE Skeets and Tas Melas - love those guys.
