Boston's finishing touch
June 17, 2008 - Neil Rudel
Kobe Bryant isn't Tiger Woods, but the Boston Celtics shouldn't want to test that theory.
The Celtics need to win Game 6 tonight to close out the NBA series and thus not give Kobe a shot at them in Game 7.
As courageously as he played, Rocco Mediate left the door open for Tiger, particularly on Sunday. A Boston loss would do the same for Kobe tonight.
I'm not betting on it. I picked the Lakers in 6 and that can't happen, but they haven't played well enough, particularly on defense or consistently enough, to think LA can win two in Boston.
