Game 7 Predictions
What Boston needs to do to win:
*Come out more aggressive than the lakers. They need to act...not react.
*Defend like they did in 08.
*Win in the paint. With wallace/davis getting more time now...this is possible.
*Get as many loose balls as possible.
What L.A needs to do to win:
*Just like Boston, the lakers need to come out first and stick it to the celtics.
*Kobe must have a great game tonight.
*Gasol must have a good game, and artest either needs to be consistant tonight.
*Odom must have a good game off the bench.
*USE THE CROWD!
I'm picking Boston to win. This team has had a harder road to the finals than the lakers. The celtics have worked through the better teams to get where they are, I don't think they're about to give that up now. Game 6 was their worst effort in the series, and the chance of that repeating is small. I think Boston's defense will show up and slowly break down the Lakers. and don't get me wrong, sometime in the 4th quarter is when it's all gonna happen. I expect it to be a very close game until the 4th quarter.
make your prediction and explain why.
Rondo needs to have a great game. and he should because they have no one quick enough to guard him.
boston by 11
Rondo needs to have a great game. and he should because they have no one quick enough to guard him. If Rondo gets going they will all get going.
ima stick to who i chose first, boston, but the catalyst for the celtics isnt garnett or wallace, or pierce, allen, ITS RONDO
lol, he needs to play like he did in game 2, he needs to get every1 involved, he doesnt exatcly need 20 points, but needs to play great thru out,
Picked the Celtics to start the series, sticking to it.
To me its KG with Perkins out he can't be in foul trouble and will have to play 40 mins.
He needs to keep Gasol/Odom off the glass and stop taking so many jumpers get in the post and show why your a Hall of Famer. If he plays Gasol to a wash they have should win the gameAlso Rivers has to play Nate some even with Rondo on the court go small force the issue some and keep Kobe and the Lakers bigs on their heels.
Tony Allen is a good defender but Kobe will probly get his no matter who is playing D.
Also try not to double team so much it leads to easy baskets if the other team passes well and Celts will get into foul trouble. Can we see Ray Allen in the post over Fisher he's got like a 3 inch height advantage on him.
Remember the Celtics have won 3 of the 4 close games in this series. Yes Rondo sets the pace but if they back off him esp. in half court his jump shot could have a huge factor on the outcome.
