Lakers-Celtics, Game 2, Halftime Thoughts

What’s with the officiating? Terrible, terrible calls tonight, especially on Kobe. You figure there will be some bad calls, but all of them seem to be going on the Lakers. As for the game itself, it’s still a great game, but I can’t help but wonder what would happen without all the fouls. Let them play. On the other side, Paul Pierce is playing possessed. He’s playing like an animal. I originally said Lakers in 6. I’m changing that now. Celtics in 5. This team is so good defensively. You have the veterans. And what a game by Leon Powe. Rarely used, he gets his chance and proves his worth. Rajon Rondo, another great game. But where’s Kobe? He can’t shoot. Forget the fouls, he needs to make his shots. He’s getting good looks. P.J. Brown, comes out of retirement and still can play. The Lakers need to stage a huge comeback and win this game to stay in the series. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Phil Jackson steaming at the refs after the game. 

On a different note, anybody see the pregame show? What a great job with Bill Russell. And the opening before the game started, showing the old Finals highlights, was absolutely perfect. Great job ESPN/ABC. If there’s anything that gets me excited about a game, it’s the old highlights, it was enough to send chills down my spine. Spectacular.
