Series: Celtics-1, Lakers-1
After the first two games in the 2010 NBA Finals, we have a tie at 1-1, with the series heading to Boston. Ray Allen was on fire going 8-11 from Three, which is a record for the Finals, and Rondo helped with a triple-double. Although Pierce and Garnett didn’t have spectacular games, the Celtics played good team defense.
For Game 3, you would have to assume Kobe will score more than just 21 like he did tonight. But at the same time, it is Boston homecourt, so look for them to try and control the tempo running the floor and getting some transition three’s. Seems like Boston plays better this post-season when they get thrown under the bus. We’ll see what happens when they go back to Boston for three straight games.
