But who wins in the end?
What about New Orleans?
And I have to root for my home state team

Doubt it. Celtics fed the over-rated Kobe his lunch.
And without Shaq being able to camp out in the paint, the Lakers won't win a title.

The two games you are referring to were prior to the trades, particularly the Gasol trade.

And who did the Celtics hone their skills against all season in the East? Detroit is it.

Unless a big injury sidelines some starters Lakers win the title.

Dunno,

They played like shit the last 2 games.
If they can't handle a second-rate team like the Hocks, I don't see them going very far.

Go Cavs!

Wouldn't mind seeing Detroit or Boston lose another game, but I seriously doubt they'll lose their respective series.

Oddly enough, if they had gone for two rather than three they would have won since Atlanta failed to score.

Get them in Boston.

Well, now that the Celtics have dropped one at home, I really do not think this is such a sure thing.

I was not convinced they were going to beat the Pistons even before last night's game. Now I am even less convinced.

It will be really interesting to see what happens in Detroit--now that they HAVE to win on the road, and they have failed to all post-season so far.

They have been completely unimpressive in the play offs and have more held on rather than beat the other teams.

It's ok though, I will also accept Lakers vs. Detroit for the finals as a form of pay back.

One thing I hate about NBA is the utterly subjective refereeing--that occurs on both sides. Obviously, the "offensive foul" from a man standing behind the three-point line is, as commentators put it, "the worst call in history!" However, that was not the only one. Fortunately, the Cs shook off the loss of a potential 4 point play . . . much like the Steelers shook off that attempt to give the AFC Championship to Indy.

Great game.

Could've been done without the theatrics.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and add to my prediction: Lakers in 5.

I doubt either team will win it in 5. 6 maybe.

Man Lakers gave 3rd quarter away, the only thing that was missing from it was a gift-wrapping and a bow.

Sure the officiating in the first half was so blatantly one-sided that the referees might as well have been wearing Celtic jerseys, but that's no excuse to go home for fucks sake.

Especially since the Cs gift wrapped it in the first and fourth.

NBA referee's suck...they favor the home team...
But when it's my home team I don't mind.

Man, those Lakers are crybabies even when the refs are giving them all the calls.

And the Celtics would be winning if they could actually find the basket a little.

I was not pleased with the way Lakers were playing, they better kick it up a notch if they want to win 3 more games.
