That’s it! The Boston Celtics has won their 17th NBA title after beating the L.A Lakers in 6 games. If only Singaporepools has bets on NBA games.
After 22 years, the Celtics has finally won the NBA title again. Having seemed the games, I have to say the Celtics deserved the title. Not only did they came back from 24 points to win Game 4, almost came back from 19 points to win Game 5; they also won Game 6 by 39 (a record for the biggest margin of victory in a championship clincher).
The Big Three, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, were important for Boston but it was their bench who won the title for them. James Posey, Leon Powe and even Sam Cassell came up big at various points of the series as the Celtics’ veteran bench just outplayed the Lakers’ bench. Whereas Pierce, Allen and Posey swarm all over Kobe; Powe and Cassell took over some of the scoring duties from the starting line-up. Something Kobe did not have.
Boston in 6 games, the new NBA champions!
