NBA Finals: Game 1 … post mortem

When two great teams go head-to-head, in a Best-of-7 affair … it’s a simple game to analyze …


Game 1 info


TOTAL REBOUNDS: LA Lakers 33, Boston Celtics 46


FINAL SCORE: Lakers 88, Celtics 98


sealed, emphatically, by Kevin Garnett’s Offensive Rebound, putback dunk (at the 1:32 mark of the 4thQ) which put Boston up by 8 points and created a 3 possession game for LA (time & score) at The Moment of Truth.



When nothing seems to help, I go look at a stonecutter hammering away at his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much a a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not that blow that did it, but all that had gone before.” – Jacob Riis (American newspaper reporter and photographer, 1849-1914)



When the Celtics (+13) hammer the Lakers on the boards and win the ‘Rebounding Differential’ battle in this series they will win the war.


Win 4 wars … and, the C’s will be the 2007-2008 NBA Champions.
