Anyone Seen the Lakers? Anyone? Bunch of Tall, Wussy-Looking Guys in Purple and Gold?

I guess that kid's t-shirt rubbed off on the Lakers, because boy are they laying a huge egg. P.J. Brown just hit two free throws to put the Celtics up by 31 points with just over 5 minutes left in the third quarter. The Lakers look listless, the Celtics look hungry and possessed. Barring a major letdown, it's going to be a special night in Boston.

KG has risen to the occasion big time in this one. Best highlight was a sequence toward the end of the first half when he hit a ludicrous falling away shot after being fouled, blocked a Laker at the other end, and then made a sweet pass to Perkins for another bucket. He's been diving for loose balls all night long, and Rondo is back to his ball-hawking ways. He's got six steals and we're not even through the third quarter.

If I was a true blogger, I'd drive the 20 minutes south to the Garden and get some street reaction. You're just going to have to settle for some couch reaction.
