LA is down 3-1 and tonight it's comes down to getting it back to Boston. Can they do it? Of course, I think they will win tonight. The long term question is can they win two consecutive games in Boston? I don't think so. Kobe always has the element of surprise, but I don't know if they can do that.
So what do they have to do to stay alive?
The Lakers have to just execute for 48 minutes. In game four, they did execute for 24 minutes. The offense can't become stagnant, the defense can't sit back and relax. It's not over yet, how many times have the Lakers said that the last couple of days? You have to agree because this team has been on a role since the Gasol deal. I think they are going to make the right adjustments and play a strong game.
The media is getting a little old..
If you watch the media availability, all of the questions seem to center around Kobe. Is Kobe a better teammate, how does his change in attitude compare to how MJ changed, all of these dumb questions that have nothing to do with the task at hand in this series! In fact, DFish was talking to the media yesterday and he said there were a lot of "Kobe" questions. So please, all of you Boston and Los Angeles writers (others too, but that's who I hear the most) lay off! Ask DFish a question about DFish!
Anyway, coverage for game five tonight starts at 8:30 pm Eastern (pre-game show). What you care about seeing, the game, starts a little after 9 pm Eastern. Have a happy fathers day watching the NBA finals!
