NBA Finals 2010 - All Tied Up
The Boston Celtics and LA Lakers are all even at 1-1 in the best-of-7 game NBA Finals. The Series will shift to Boston now for games 3 and 4 where the Celtics have gained home-court advantage… that might give them just enough edge to win the championship.
Ray For 3
Ray Allen lit it up in game 2 earning the MVP of the game and claiming the “main man” captain of the Celtics who are swamped with leaders. It’s true that sometimes when a team is full of all-stars, they all have a tough time trying to figure out who is going to be the go-to-guy. Ray figured it out. He set a record for most 3-pointers in a NBA Finals with 8 from downtown. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett continued to struggle offensively, so if it weren’t for Ray, the Celtics could be down 2-0.
With the old guys providing the leadership, the young guy with the hustle and hype is Rajon Rondo running the court like a rabbit. Rajon’s speed and energy scored him his first NBA Finals triple double. He scored 19 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.
The biggest story of these NBA Finals is actually the tweeting of the referees. In just two games so far in this series, there has been 134 free throws awarded to both teams. Nobody really wants to watch a basketball game that has all the points being scored at the free throw line. But whose fault is it? Do you blame the referees for calling too many fouls or do you blame the players for playing too rough? Well the NBA is going to have to figure it out, because it sure makes the games difficult to watch.
