NBA Finals: I’m Still Alive
Does anyone get the distinct impression LA simply prolonged the inevitable last night? Don’t get wrong, the Lakers deserve credit for winning and if they are going to pull the miraculous, they are going to have to simply continue doing what they did last night — namely, win. However, nothing I saw last night led me to believe the Lakers had finally solved the mystery offered by the Celtics. Even after another explosive first quarter, the Lakers found themselves struggling to close the Celtics out down the stretch.
But close them out they did as the Lakers used good performances from Lamar Odom, Pau Gasol, Derek Fisher and the MVP to stay alive for at least one more game. Hey, that reminds me of a song applicable to LA’s performance last night. Take it away, Eddie:
Game 6 is Tuesday night.
