NBA Betting news…The Celtics lost a great opportunity this past Tuesday and let the home game momentum get away along with losing the possibility of winning three consecutive games on home court. Paul Pierce who is a previous NBA Finals Most Valuable Player has to come to life as the Celtics are in a one of the do or die scenario. Also they need Ray Allen to have another big game and the two of them were somewhat dormant in the last loss to the Lakers. It’s unbelievable but Allen was 0-13 from the court after the spectacular and record breaking shooting of 7 three pointers in the first half alone of game 2.
With another good game from Bryant, Gasol and Fisher the Lakers will be only one game away from their fifth NBA Title and NBA Champions for the 2nd consecutive season. Another strong player for the Lakers in game 3 was Bynum who scored nine points, but more importantly that he had ten rebounds, a valuable asset in these playoff games.
