NBA Finals Betting Free Picks: Los Angeles Lakers vs. Boston Celtics Game 4



#1 Los Angeles Lakers

#4 Boston Celtics

Lakers Lead Series 2-1

Once again, home court advantage has flipped back to the Los Angeles Lakers once and for all in NBA Finals betting action, as they beat the Boston Celtics at TD Banknorth Garden 91-84 in Game 3 of this best of seven series. The two teams will have iat it once again on Thursday night in what really should amount to be a do or die situation for the hosts.

It wasn’t the best offensive game in the world for the Lakers, but they did just enough to take care of the C’s and move within two games of being declared NBA champs for the second straight season. G Kobe Bryant ultimately took 29 shots from the field, but he scored his 29 points to go with seven rebounds and five assists in the triumph in Game 3. Bryant only shot 1/7 from beyond the arc, which was the biggest reason why the team only shot 13.3 percent from downtown for the game. The big men in the middle did a great job of cleaning up the glass, especially on the offensive end on Tuesday night, as both F Pau Gasol and C Andrew Bynum had ten boards. Five of Bynum’s rebounds were offensive. LA outrebounded Boston 43-35 for the game and 11-8 offensively.

Just one game after G Ray Allen lit the world on fire and nailed eight triples, he had the worst game of his professional career. The basket was just closed for the Connecticut standout all game long, as he shot 0/13 from the floor and 0/8 from the field. The good news for the Celtics is that the rest of the team did shoot an amazing 53.3 percent for the game, but those 13 missed shots without a make were really just killers. F Kevin Garnett’s fantastic game was wasted, as he scored 25 points to lead the team and had six boards and three assists to boot. F Paul Pierce has really yet to assert himself fully in this series, scoring just 15 points in Game 3. Foul trouble was a major concern for HC Doc Rivers in the third game of this series, as three of his starters and F Rasheed Wallace all ended up with at least four fouls for the game.

The alternation of wins and losses in this series is set to continue. The Lakers have to feel like they have ultimately done their job in these three games in Beantown, winning the one game that they had to have to assure at worst that this series would go back to Tinseltown. Expect to see the Celtics fighting for their lives just like they did in Game 2 to avoid dropping into a two game deficit in this best of seven set.
