Los Angeles Boston Game 1

  1. NBA finals, Laker Celtics Game 1: If the power forward matchup is key, Boston is in trouble

    Jun 4, 2010, 12:07 PM EST

    Pau Gasol may not have the force or vast defensive impact of Dwight Howard, but his Game 1 performance provided a convincing case that Gasol is one of the best all-around bigs in the game. Put him in the high post, and he set up plays for his teammates while pulling Kevin Garnett away from…

  2. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics: L.A. made statistical anomalies look easy in Game 1

    Jun 4, 2010, 11:30 AM EST

    Even if the Laker lead in Game 1 never got completely out of hand, there’s no question that Los Angeles was in control. L.A. was in sync both offensively and defensively, and their offensive balance and defensive resistance offered the Celtics a challenge they’ve rarely faced in these playoffs. It was a bit odd to…

  3. NBA finals, Lakers Celtics Game One: Who are these guys in green and what did they do with the real Celtics?

    Wow, that was just useless. Doc Rivers and Phil Jackson said almost nothing of interest in their pregame press conferences. Rivers lasted just longer than two minutes. Apparently even the media is sick of talking about this game. Phil Jackson had one good line, when asked about NBA TV analyst and former Minnesota Timberwolves General…

    Phil Jackson things winning Game 1 is important. Shocking. As for the players, they don’t care so much about the rivalry, they care about the ring.  

  6. NBA Finals, Lakers Celtics Game 1: Sheed is ready to roll, but don't count on Daniels

    We checked in with Hawkeye over at the 4077 and here is the Celtics M*A*S*H* Unit report: Rasheed Wallace has practiced with the team and is ready to go, he is expected so play tonight. It’s important, not only because the Celtics could use his shooting coming off the bench tonight, but because later in…
