Celtics deserve to be in the Finals. Best record in the League. Hungry, Talented and unselfish. This is just my opinion but I actually think Mr. Phil got "out coached!" He probably has the same song and dance that the team always hears. What was he saying to the team during the game "Relax?!" Was he thinking that his team is that better than the Celtics that they are over playing and nervous and all they had to do was relax!? Wow. Tell the Truth to your team Phil!

We now have to beat a team four out of the next five games that we are 0-4 against this year, and who has two players, Pierce and Garnett we can not stop.

Get me a puke bucket!

I completely agree with the post. The Celtics are the aggressors, with the exception of the end of Game 2's 4th quarter flurry. Even then, it was too little too late.

Gasol is being exposed by stronger, more aggressive athletes. He's too weak inside and Odom seems to be disappearing on many plays on the inside. Odom actually looks lost half the time- like he's suffering from amnesia or something. Radmo has 1 good play for every 5 mistakes he makes. I think Turiaf should replace Radmo so we can get more physical and get some better defense- sometimes no one is even guarding the man going down the lane.

Kobe is not the MVP in this series. It has to go to Pierce or even Allen. They're making all the clutch shots. Kobe is taking ill-advised shots like the Kobe of old. He can't stay with his man - Phil, please dont assign Kobe to Pierce. Kobe will get burnt every time and Pierce is too strong, even with a bad knee.

Phil. Please. Speak the truth. Please tell Kobe that he's not Michael Jordan and that he has to play TEAM BALL, stop taking stupid shots when he's not open, and please start driving the lane and drawing fouls or dish it out. The truth shall set the Lakers free. And unfortunately, no one has the balls to tell the "MVP" the truth.

You said it better than me. I was looking for a dictionary, couldn't spell the word so I will sould it out "sike-kee". Sort of like the Scramento Kings when they had the series in the bag against the Lakers but couldn't make any of those free throws. Just one or two more free throws and the Kings would have gone to play the Nets that year in the Finals. If the Bench for the Lakers comes through, Kobe gets Odom and co. involved, then it would be business as usual. Also someone off the Bench needs to shine (Remember Michael Thompson, Campbell etc?!).
