At the start of the fourth quarter the Celtics reserves suddenly caught fire. Ray Allen combined with Sam Casell, Leon Powe and James Posey to give the Celtics an 86-78 lead. After that, Lakers offense suddenly run cold as their shots did not fall despite the good looks that they had.
Game 2 will be another hell raiser for both teams as they have adjusted with how both teams play. Look for the Lakers to be more energetic while the CEltics will have more confidence in them.
