They found a way, but not an answer. Did the scrape-and-claw routine. Sort of made like Indiana Jones, and made it up as they went along.

It never ceases to amaze me the spin, or lack thereof, that Boston fans puts out there. When the Big Three (arguable at best after last night's true form) shoots well, its all a natural process in human evolution, but when they shoot poorly... well, just had an off night. The truth of the matter is, Lakers showed last night they, too, can play defensive -- and not the west coast style defense. I am talking about JVG/Knicks-esque defense. One proven difference so far in this series is that it takes at least 2-3 players to effectively stop the Mamba (hmmm, I wonder who is going to be the next Sasha when they are left wide open) but it only takes 1 KB to stop the hottest shooter on the Celtics team. So unless someone can convincingly tell me that all the BIG 3 will show up simultaneously (in every game), I say there is still a lot of game to be played in this series. Lastly, I would like to see much more of Eddie and Sam on the court for the Celtics next game... the always dependable godsent for the Lakers.

Please... You people know in your hearts this NBA is rigged. Here is a prediction, ready?

This series will go 7 games with some amazing comeback (aided by foul calls of course) and people will say it was the best series since... well... The mid 80's. Nice! Just like Wrestling!

The NBA is a complete joke and anyone who knows sports knows it. Dont talk to me about "bieng aggresive". Kobe was mugged and beaten in game 2 and got 0 calls... Pierce and others where practically gang tackled in 3 and no calls... Its pathetic.

Geez... I wonder who will win tonight? Let me guess... Lakers!!! OMG!!! LOOK!! SERIES IS NOW TIED 2 GAMES A PIECE!!! YAY!!!! BEST SERIES EVER!!!!(prediction: Pierce and KG will be in serious foul trouble early, this is how these refs dictate the outcome, how many times have we heard that this playoff season?)

The Celshits ran out of gas last night cause they're old and tired. Same thing will happen in Games 4 and 5. And they better win this one, cause you won't see them in the Finals for another 12 years. While the Lakers take the next 3 rings, at least.
You really are stupid. Your basketball knowledge is right up there with most people in L.A. Why are you californians so friggin strange?

The Lakers play defense?....Maybe 2 or 3 quarters. It will take more than that to win this series. The Lakers play D. Thats funny. You are funny.Ok. Really you are a moron.Kobe cant handle any good defense, not without whining about every damn call.Wonder where he gets that from?...Maybe Phil (mycrackin) Jackson. 2 Biggest Crybabies in the league..Except on the nights they win..Then the officiating was good.

I haven't seen a more lopsided game than game 2 in Boston. It seems like all the Lakers players need to do is breathe on a Celtic and they'll call foul.
For Packfan 1972--If you can't stand the Lakers then get out of So Cal..The Lakers is LA and vise versa. Oh sorry, can't stand the cold in Boston. Do you like too much hanging out in the streets of So Cal (great weather huh)? BTW, how did you get access to the computer. Don't tell me the government check pays for that too?
Hey, don't diss Gasol..he's the best thing that happened to the Lakers since January 2008. I knew Kobe went to Barcelona for something..

Its questionable that some of you would even be able to watch something as enjoyable as a basketball game. You are so busy complaining about the players, your conspiracy theories, and name calling, you might be better off doing something different for your personal entertainment.
