The Lakers lack the cohesion of a team that the Celtics have - from running their offense, to getting amazing defensive plays, the Celtics have continually hurt the Lakers with the intagibles: heart and desire (Eye of the Tiger). Winning 2 in a row generally spells doom for the other team, but can the Celtics put it together to get a win at Staples?
Breaking the finals record for 3's in a game, Ray Allen had the eye of the tiger as he took on all comers. No one could slow him down as he shot 8-11 from 3 point range on his way to a 32 point night. For even more basketball: BBALLBREAKDOWN.COM

The Cetlics earned a trip to the NBA Finals with a hard fought six game series against the Orlando Magic. Coach Nick focuses in on the keys to the Celtics game - what they do well and what you'd need to do to counteract them.
The role players on the Magic have played poorly from a simple execution stand point. Rashard Lewis is busy playing terrific defense on everyone, so I don't think his low offensive output is a factor. Keep him on KG at all times, get Gortat in there for 25 or 30 minutes, and have Vince Carter outplay Paul Pierce. That's all.
