Lakers Will Try To Rally Again

BOSTON, June 9 -- The Los Angeles Lakers can't view it as some final frantic act from a desperate team or a momentary rush that produced a scare in a sleepwalking opponent. For them, that improbable, seven-minute run in which they nearly erased the Boston Celtics' 24-point lead in the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the NBA Finals has to serve as some hope that the situation will be different as the series shifts to Staples Center on Tuesday for Game 3.
Trailing 0-2 in this best-of-seven series, the Lakers have to do more than think being at home will be enough. Maybe Kobe Bryant has finally found some cracks in that vaunted defense. Maybe with a little ball movement and some aggressive defense, they can give the Celtics 48 minutes of fear. After all, they didn't just chip away at that huge deficit; they stuck a piece of dynamite into it.
