Tonight's game 3 of the NBA Finals can't get here soon enough. It seems that the Celtics always have someone to take the reigns when others aren't performing up to snuff. Whether it be Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Big Baby, Perk, Rondo, Nate Robinson or game 2's hero Ray Allen. Ray Ray hit 8 three pointers in the game (7-of-7 in the first half, 8-of-11 for the game), an NBA Finals record, surpassing himself with 7 in one game.
Is The Fix In?
It was very pretty to see Mr. Shuttlesworth stroke the three-ball one after the other, but it was very upsetting to hear Jeff Van Gundy and the gang exclaim, "He finally missed one", on his eighth attempt. Along with the announcers, the commercials by the NBA and even the officiating, begs the question, are the finals already decided before they're over?
Now I don't want to over shadow Jesus' performance in game 2 and I'm not going to lag on the fact that NBA commissioner David Stern wants to see the Lakers and Kobe win this series. The fact that the Celtics always have someone step up and take control when others aren't playing well gives them all the opportunity in the world to shut Kobe and the Lakers up and bring another championship to Boston.
