NBA Finals 2008 Boston Celtics vs LA Lakers Game 3

I didn’t follow Game 2. So I won’t comment much about it except for two things. Leon Powe had a great game and the Celtics nearly lost Game 2 after leading by 24 points in the 4th quarter. The Celtics do not deserve to win the series if they had lost Game 2.

It was Sasha Vujacic’s turn in Game 3. He helped the Lakers to take the lead in the 4th quarter and won the game by 6 points. Yes, Kobe played better by scoring 36 points, much better than the 24 and 30 points he had in the first two games. I believe the Lakers were more desperate to win Game 3 than the Celtics. As much as I would like to see the Celtics sweep the series by 4-0, I suspect a 4-0 scoreline is not healthy for the NBA. Then all the hype about the rivalry would come to naught.

Ray Allen came and played but Paul Pierce was nowhere to be seen. Kevin Garnett had a slow start as well and only came alive in the final minutes of the game. The 87-81 score is the lowest by far in this final series. Could be due to the jet lag.

I share Ray Allen’s confidence in the team. I hope the Celtics can win one game before we head back to Boston.

p/s: Congratulations to Rafael Nadal for winning his 4th French Open Tennis title.
