Lakers Hammer Celtics, Force Game 7

Boston CelticsThe Los Angeles Lakers took the Boston Celtics to school last night, destroying them 89-67. Once again, Kobe Bryant lead all scorers with 26 points. Amazingly, four out of the five Celtic’s starters were in double figures with Ray Allen leading the way (19 points). The Lakers simply outhustled and outplayed the Celtics – essentially playing like their lives depended on it. In essence, they did. The Lakers were facing elimination last night. But, with their win last night, they’ve forced a winner-take-all Game 7. This is the first Game 7 the NBA Finals have seen since 2005 when the San Antonio Spurs beat the Detroit Pistons 81-74.

Will the real Celtics show up on Thursday night?
