    They never had the lead, what was he supposed to close?

    I agree in part with HB. Bryant had a HoF 3rd quarter, one of the best quarters in Finals history.

    His fourth quarter was... forgettable.

    Games like this, where he "fails" to lead his team to victory, are why many insist Kobe is overrated, or some other such bluster. Bryant had three lousy quarters. Lousy. He had one transcendent quarter.

    The haters are going to remember the three lousy quarters.

    Kobe Fans will remember the 3rd quarter.

    He scored 38 points.

    If you're going to remember anything about how he played other than "great" then, well, no comment.

    I thought it was conclusive the ball hit the rim.

    I also thought Kobe was brilliant. I can't believe the number of very contested shots he made. I mean, Allen was chest-to-chest and a hand in Kobe's face and the ball still goes in.

    But the Lakers need to get their O in gear. If the only way they can score is for Kobe to make impossible shot after impossible shot, they ain't winning. Gasol contributed some, but Odom and Fisher and someone off the bench has to catch fire. Bynum is too gimpy.

    Phil Jackson needs to figure out a way to defeat the Celtics D.

    This is the day of the expanding man...

    No, the Lakers need to get their "D" in gear. They are giving Celtics uncontested points in the paint. A big no, no. Celtics were driving to the basket at will. If you're not doing it on offense, Gasol/Artest/Lamar, at least play some D. Rondo's driving to the basket, you have to make him beat you from the line.

    It really doesn't matter, but to me the ball was clearly off the backboard and did not touch the rim at all. The overhead shot showed it all the way.

    I'll give the ball hitting the rim thing to those of you with better eyesight. It's been pointed out to me today that my visual perception's not what it should be--I thought I saw air between the ball and the rim at the moment the spin seemed to change on one of the replay angles. I haven't watched anything today.

    As for Kobe, yeah, it was what it was (sorry for those who hate that expression). He had a great third quarter, but wasn't able to take the team on his back and single-handedly grab a victory in the fourth. Thing is, there shouldn't have been any need for him to do anything single-handedly. Just a bad game for the Lakers on the whole. And a good game for Pierce and Rondo.

    The refs didn't review it, anyway, they just conferred, so they didn't see what we saw on the video, they just saw whatever they thought they saw in real time.

    How about this. If the Celtics pull this off, they are very possibly a KG knee injury away from a 3-peat. Yikes.

    If the Lakers pull this off, they are possibly a Bynum injury away from a 3-peat.

    Agreed. It has been a strange few seasons.

    And, if they don't, they'd still maybe be 2 Bynum injuries away.

    FWIW, Sportsbook has the Celtics and Lakers at even odds to win the series (both -110).

    Unfortunately, I won't be able to watch tonight, as I'm flying to (ironically) L.A.

    Lakers/Celtics Game 7. I don't think the NBA could ask for anything more.
