See how the Thunder and the Lakers stack up in their 2012 NBA Playoff meeting. The Thunder hold home court advantage, but are they the favorites in this series?
Champions are famous because they know how to win, but I have yet to meet a true champion who didn’t know how to handle losing, as well.
With their championship lives on the line tonight at the Staples Center in LA, the Lakers will have to find an answer for Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo.
Allen’s hot shooting in the first half created a comfortable distance between the Celtics and Lakers, the NBA’s two most recent champions. But it was Rondo’s consistent play in the second half that maintained that margin and allowed Boston to tie the series up before heading home for two more.
The Celtics got straight up embarrassed in game one. Kobe ran roughshod over the Celtics D which had been stalwart up until this point. Garnett got off to a slow start and Pierce, despite scoring 24 never looked comfortable. But tonight HAS to be different for Boston if they want to have a chance in this series.
