Which Team Is In It To Win It?
Posted by Nancy on June 08, 2010
Game 3 of the NBA finals is going to be very interesting indeed. The Celtics are back on their home court and will be playing in front of thousands of fans screaming “beat L.A., beat L.A.”. That is something that the team from Boston definitely CAN do, but it will come down to whether or not they WILL play to win. The Lakers did win in Boston earlier this year in regular season play, but tonight’s game has a lot more riding on it, so hopefully the Celtics will step up and play with the intensity that a win will require.
These two teams have met in the finals before and undoubtedly, old memories are still vivid in the minds of those players. Los Angeles lost the home court advantage against the Celtics two years ago much the same as they did on Sunday night. The result then was that Boston went on a three game winning streak and took the championship trophy and accompanying rings. Will this season have a similar finish or will the defending champs find the grit and energy to take one of the next three games (all of which will be played in Boston) and take the fight back to L.A.? It promises to be a fiery match-up on the parquet floor tonight.
