Ok maybe that’s more than a word but WHO THE HELL CARES! The Lakers won the championship……AGAIN!!!!
Final Score: Lakers 83 – Celtics 79
For the second consecutive year the Los Angeles Lakers are the NBA CHAMPS.
For much of the first 3 quarters the Lakers played atrociously, missing open shots and even worse, missing free-throws. L.A. shot below 30 percent from the field in the first half but managed to hit the locker room down only 6. For the game the champs shot a feeble 32.5%.
It looked like two completely different teams took the floor for the 4th quarter as the scoring and intensity picked up. Boston fouled themselves into the penalty early on in the quarter sending L.A. to the line 23 times. The Lakers shot only 14 free throws in quarters 1-3. The Celts couldn’t keep after their shooting and scoring disappeared thanks to LOCKDOWN defense by the Lakers.
After the game, Kobe Bryant commented that he, “Sucked.”
Kobe didn’t suck, he may have shot poorly but he managed to contribute in other ways. Brtyant grabbed 15 rebounds to go along with his game high 23 points on the way to his second consecutive FINALS MVP award.
The Lakers title parade will be Monday. The team will be riding floats from Staples Center down Figueroa Street to the USC campus in downtown Los Angeles.
