Did you WATCH that game? I knew, and said to my wife with about 3 minutes left in the first quarter when the Lakers were up by 18, "The Lakers are gong to lose this game." LA is one of the mentally weakest teams I've ever seen. They are too satisfied with mini-victories: We came back in game two!! We won game three! We built a big lead in game 4!! Odom was done after he hit that jumper from inside the circle. Tongue hanging out; a smirk on his face. No recognition that the toughest player in the NBA this side of Tim Duncan, Paul Pierce was about to take over and go medieval on the boys in yellow..
Kobe...boy the Lakers must really HATE his guts to not care as little as they care.
Doc Rivers is a GREAT coach by the way, and his lineup changes in the third quarter are what NBA coaches are supposed to get paid for. Powe? House? Posey? Unbelievable. Gasol is making Garnett look tough.
And you gotta love Ray Allen.
