Hey wait! The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers are tied at 1-1 in the NBA Finals. So how can I consider the Boston Celtics on top. It’s simple. In order for Boston to have any shot at winning an NBA Championship they had to prove that they could beat the Lakers on their home court. They did that last night.
Now the Boston Celtics face the challenge of keeping Los Angelse in check. But they’ll be doing it back in Beantown and have a big chance to grab momentum over the next three games. Heck, they could even lock up an NBA Championship without ever returning to L.A. Not likely, but if the Boston Celtics can grab 2 of the next three then they’ll have two shots to win it all on the Lakers court. Those are pretty good odds.
