    Lakers in 6 (but 5 wouldn't surprise me either).

    Celtics aren't 'stealing' the first one.

    The difference between this series and the one two years ago is Bynum and Artest. We're a better team then we were then, and the Celtics aren't as good.

    Three.

    The difference is the Gasol/KG matchup, which is just embarrassing. Artest can not be counted on for that offensive output for the rest of the series. Needless to say he was very good tonight.

    Gasol's 8 offensive boards were the difference in the game.

    No. The difference is Bynum and Artest. Having Bynum keeps the more physical Perkins off of Gasol. Gasol will get his against KG at this point in his career.

    And please, Artest was nailing open shots tonight. If teams are going to give Ron Ron open looks, he will hit them. He's not a horrible offensive player, and Pierce, who killed us two years ago, was contained tonight.

    Having the bigger body of Artest forces Allen to guard Kobe, and clearly that got Ray into foul trouble tonight.

    If the Lakers are going to out physical the Celtics like they did tonight, this will be a very short series.

    With that being said, I expect a different effort from the C's come Sunday.

    I'm just not going to do this all series long.

    If it's a tightly officiated game like it was tonight, the Celtics have zero chance.

    The Celtics shot six more free throws than the Lakers did.

    Find somebody else to blame.

    Celtics had zero chance anyway. The Los Angeles Lakers are the best team in the NBA this year.

    Never said the officiating favored the Celtics. I said if it's going to be tightly officiated, it's going to favor the Lakers.

    And if you want to get technical, the Celtics were called for more fouls than the Lakers were.

    How does a tightly officiated game favor the Lakers?

    The Celtics entire defensive strategy is based on their physicalness. They didn't even play very physical tonight and got called for 28 fouls. They aren't going to be able to defend effectively if they can't by physical, especially with Gasol.

    Officiating tonight was terrible, and I think the C's even got the benefit of the calls. Some of those Artest and Fisher fouls were straight garbage. The Odom call under the hoop was awful. The Allen foul on the Kobe elbow jumper was the worst call of the game. It's not going to be a fun series if there are going to be 52 fouls called, especially in a game where one team isn't fouling to catch up in the end.

    In theory, their defensive strategy is based on their physicality, but when you consider the Lakers out-physicaled (that's not a word) the Celtics tonight, I'm not sure you can say it's advantage Lakers.

    I'll agree that the refs were bad both ways tonight, though.
