Unfortunately, Mceezy and I weren’t able to watch any of the first five games, because China isn’t all that excited about teams that aren’t from Houston. Now, we found ourselves extra excited about game 6. So we decided it was only fitting to bust out a game diary while watching the game tonight, to take anyone unable to watch through the ups and downs of the game or maybe even give you some extra insights to what went down at Staples Center. Everybody seems to be picking the Lakers tonight, and I hope they are wrong, so I can break out the Celtics hat I bought in 08′ just to piss off co-workers!
Chappy: Boston wins. Rondo gets ridiculous with a triple double. Pau already has a flight booked to South Africa to watch Spain play tomorrow in the World Cup, Odom ate too many gummy bears, Artest is confused, so Kobe is on his own out there once again…
MCeezy: There hasn’t been a Game 7 in the NBA Finals in five years. The Lakers don’t want to watch Boston celebrate on their floor again – at least until Game 7. LA can’t match the heart and drive of Boston, but Kobe with his back against the wall outweighs the Celtics with a game to burn. The Lakers live to see another day.
9:08 Lakers up 9-6
MCeezy: The Lakers are winning the battle of the most fired up bench.
Chappy: I think both teams look pretty pumped up for this one, should be entertaining!
7:44 12-14 Lakers after an Allen 3 and Kobe 3
Chappy: The Celtics got their only win when Allen was on fire, good sign for the C’s… Fischer complaining about someone flopping!?!
5:58 18-12 Lakers on a run as Perkins gets shaken up
MCeezy: Kobe: More PASSES or Shot Attempts tonight? I’ll bet more shots than passes, in the second half at least.
Chappy: I’d lean toward more shots, but I guess that depends on if anyone is else making them! Perk could be a huge loss if he can’t come back…
1:48 26-18 Lakers
MCeezy: 10 minutes in and the Lakers are clearly the aggressor. C’s just need to keep it within 10-12 at the half and they can grind it out in the second half.
Chappy: I guess my prediction of Artest looking confused is already out the window! Does he think he’s back in Houston?
28-18 End of the 1st quarter Continue reading
