Celtics vs. Lakers: Truth Is, Paul Pierce, Boston Need Game Seven More

June 16th, 2010 by Robert Kleeman Leave a reply »

Forget ubuntu. The Los Angeles Lakers handed the Boston Celtics an ubuttkicking in an 89-67 Game Six rout on Tuesday.

Doc Rivers can say this of his players: they took it together.

While the Lakers' role players risked floor burns to dive for loose balls, the Celtics were just burned. Now, Boston and its cocky leader sit on the witness stand, flaming in the court of public opinion.

If teams go as the leaders do, Paul Pierce went quietly. He screamed "we ain't coming back to L.A." after a decisive Game Two victory. Tuesday night, he scurried away from the action like a traumatized, frightened mouse.

A 6-of-14 performance in a potential clincher just stinks. His 13-point whimper was so whimpy...whispers something...oh, forget it.

The Lakers grabbed 52 rebounds, scored 40 points in the paint, swiped the ball 12 times, and led by 13 in the second quarter and never looked back, leading by as many as 27.
