Celtics @ Lakers: lakers snap celtics winning streak.

Spurs @ Suns: spurs edge the suns by 5. j-rich has a horrible game while mason comes huge.

Hornets @ Magic: Magic win by 15-20. Dwight is a beast and CP3 is the only player in double digit points for the hornets.

Wizards @ Cavs: CLeveland dominates and wins by 22. LeBron is ok, its the rest of the team that comes out huge.

Mavs @ Blazers: Portland edges out mavs in a nail-bitter, but they pull away with a home win in OT.

ESPN classics showing last years NBA Finals series, Celts beating laker's 4-2.
I had forgotten just how bad Boston beat the Laker's & by 40 in last game.

Since Boston beat LA for title, don't quite know why xmas day game is in LA.
But I know the NBA & TV need LA to win, to keep the rivalry hot & ratings up.
So the more I think about it the more I think LA will win at home but Celts are better.

Last year & this year LA has the most talent in the NBA.
LA led the NBA in offense last year & Celt's led NBA in defense.
Makes for a great game & maybe another NBA finals matchup.

I want to see this matchup again but I don't want to see the NBA &/or TV arrange it, let the best teams advance & win...not the matchup that gets the highest rating.

Anyone else that is watching the Celtics/Lakers game notice that Jeff Van Gundy seems to have a major hard-on for LeBron and the Cleveland Cavaliers? He's been saying that the Cavs are the best team in the East, and LeBron is the best player in the league by a mile. I want to know what he is smoking? Is he not watching the game right in front of him? Those 2 teams are definitely better than the Cavs.

Good game. It was obvious the Lakers wanted it more.

The Lakers needed it more. The refs favored the Lakers big time and the Celtics didn't really play too good and, they still had a chance to win the game. I wish that we could have another Celtics - Lakers finals but, I'm not sure that either team will be there at the end.

Rondo is sick. That kid is a jumper away from being just as good as any point not named CP3.

He's slick with the ball and isn't afraid to run the show on a team with 3 future hall of fame players.

The guy has a 6 -10 wingspan and those steals are legit.

Stop hating on some1 you know is good.

As for the Celtics-Lakers game...it's obvious the Lakers depth have served them well in this game. That was undeniably the distance. Bostons starters are better this year than last...but their bench lacks serious firepower.
