Having the series tied at 1 a piece, going into Boston with the media against them and things weren’t going to well for them. All hope was lost… until the outcome of the game where all was forgiven.

Thanks to Derek’s heroic plays towards the end of the game, the Lakers managed to 1-up Boston in the series and grab a 2-1 series lead and draw within 2 wins away of the franchise’s 16th NBA championship in 31 tries, also drawing to within one championship of the hated Boston Celtics.

Caught in all the glory, the Lakers managed to make the Laker legends proud by snatching their first Finals win at the TD Garden since the 4th of June, 1987. The last time the Lakers won there, it was a nail biter with Magic hitting the “junior” skyhook to give them the 107-106 lead and Larry Bird went on to miss the game winner. That was the last time the Lakers beat the Boston Celtics in the Finals but that drought is now over thanks to Derek Fisher’s heroic play to help lead the Lakers to a 91-84 win.

    Lakers gone win game 4 and 5 in Boston and win the series 4-1. It’s all good in lakerland. Just like Pierce said “we ain’t going back to LA.” Hey Pierce your wish will come true and the Lakers will celebrate in your own homecourt, while you will sit in your wheel chair crying and go to the locker room and this time not come back.
