LOS ANGELES - This one screamed for tape delay. This was not exactly a great demonstration of the product.
The Lakers won it, but how happy can they be, needing all that huffing and puffing to put away a Celtics team on a night when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are shooting 8 for 35?
As for the Celtics, what a stinkbomb.
What else do you need to know? Oh, that's right, the score. It was Los Angeles 87, Boston 81, and what it means is that there will be a Game 5.
