Boston just kicked the Lakers in the teeth. The Lakers shot 19 more free throws than Boston and are down by 6, so no blaming the refs.
Boston has the Lakers by the throat and showed them how to play the game the right way, while the Lakers struggled all game long against Boston's superior defense and greater intensity.
Lakers looked passive, confused, and honestly deserve this loss. No champion should play the way the Lakers did tonight.
"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat
