I am not going to pick this apart. It was a physical match tied for three and half quarters, then one team the shots when it counted. Unfortunately it wasn't Boston. Congratulations Laker fans, you have a year to enjoy it.
My heart goes out to the 2010 Boston Celtics. To come from fourth in the east to win the conference and take the Lakers to 7 is not something to be ashamed of. As a fan I am bummed, so I can't even imagine what the players are feeling right now. I just hope they have the desire to bring it back together for another motivated run.
This team with a tweaked roster, a good draft pick with a chip on their shoulder could find themselves back in the finals claiming the title. Let's hope.
