Really! Who wanted to go to San Antonio anyway?
Kobe Bryant proved he is the top dog in the NBA right now, lifting the Lakers over the Spurs in Game 5 and sending them back to the finals. Of course, the talk today is about Sasha Vujacic’s 3-pointer as time expired to give the Lakers a 100-92 win. The Spurs, who were not contesting the shot, were not too happy, and I’m sure a lot of people in Vegas weren’t either. The Lakers were favored by 7.5.
So now it’s up to the Celtics to seal the deal, preferably tonight on Detroit’s home floor. Do we really need another Game 7? The Lakers haven’t been pushed hard at all, while the Celtics have been fighting for their lives the whole way. It has to catch up with them at some point.
