NBA Finals: Game 2 … post mortem

Final Score: BOS 108, Lal 102 … Celtics lead the series 2-0.

Full Play-By-Play

When the Celtics play the way they did during the 2nd & 3rd Quarters of last night’s game, dominating the Lakers: (I) On the glass, (II) In trips to the FT Line, and (III) TO’s …

… they are going to win that game.

With the scene shifting to the West Coast for Games #3-5, expect the Lakers to outrebound the Celtics and, in the process, take at least 2 of 3 from the Boston – if not all 3 – before returning back to Beantown.

When two teams of this calibre match-up … it’s a simple game, decided by (i) Rebounding Differential, (ii) Free Throws & (iii) Assists : Turnovers.
