Those damned Lakers. They are like a big fat, pesky troublesome fly that’s buzzing around your room and you can’t wait to get them against the wall, behind a curtain where you can swat the life out of them.
The Utah Jazz almost did it, but they were bailed out by the Jazz’ poor play in the 4th quarter of the next to final game of the series. I have to say that there was also some horrible officiating in that game. I am not trying to imply that the refs are biased towards the home team, but they certainly weren’t calling fouls on one end of the court but were quick to blow the whistle on the other end. It’s almost as though the refs are mesmerized or afraid to make a call and anger the home fans.
Well, no matter, I still think the Lakers are not good enough to hang with San Antonio or New Orleans in the next round and will definitely be crushed against any of the Eastern Conference teams. Though the Celtics have shown a troubling inability to win games on the road, in a 6 or 7 game series I serioulsy doubt the Lakers can come into Boston and win, the Celtics swept them every game during the regular season and that is no lie, that is a fact. I think that Kevin Garnett is going to be the “fly swatter” if Boston manages to get by the Cavs.
