In a new chapter of an old rivalry the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers will meet in the NBA Finals. The Lakers have dumped the San Antonio Spurs, who won’t get a chance at back to back championships (again), and the Celtics used consecutive come from behind wins to KO the Detroit Pistons.
After a shaky start in the playoffs against a Hawks team that wouldn’t quit, the Celtics seem to have found their stride. The team with the best record in the NBA is playing dogged and determined basketball. The Los Angeles Lakers on the other hand, are rallying around their point man, Kobe Bryant. It remains to be seen which will gain the upper hand.
