The Lakers did it! They finally won back to back games and the result — THE 2009 NBA FINALS!
The Lakers just took this game over tonight. The first quarter started slow, but as the game went on, the Laker offense stepped up, and the defense was stifling.
The Lakers outshot Denver tonight 59% to only 43%. The Lakers really played great basketball on the road tonight. 27 assists on the night compared to only 14 from Denver.
Once again, it’s Friday night so I’ll keep it short so the celebrating the Lakers Western Conference Championship can get started early, but save a little for mid June.
Now, the bests of the day…
Top 3 Laker Performers –
1) Kobe again shows his MVP’ness. 35 points on 20 shots with 10 assists! Best performance of the series, easily.
2) Pau again played great! 20 points on 12 shots! 12 boards, 6 assits, 3 steals and a block.
3) Threeza did all the little things and plenty of big things. He had 17 points on 7-9 shooting with 3 threes! Lamar get’s some consideration as well!
Lakers Smush of the Day (Note: STD denotes the Laker that played the poorest): Farmar played bad defense and didn’t do anything offensively.
Play of the Night: Kobe’s three-pointer to end the first half.
What to Look for Next Game: Let’s see who we face first.
