NBA Finals 2010 (Game 3): Lakers – 91 Celtics – 84
Who says age matters?
Derek Fisher doesn’t.
No matter what you say about Fisher, the guy comes up big in the biggest spotlight, night in and night out. Period.
And he did again last night in the 4th quarter of Game 3.
With many taking the Celtics to win last night, people expected the C’s to step up. KG did…and, well, that’s about it.
Garnett simply dominated Pau Gasol in this game. In the 1st half of Game 2, Garnett had 4 points. But in Game 3’s first minute, Garnett dropped in 4 points, and nothing seemed to stop him, as he finished with a team high 25 points.Sadly, that is all the positive talk I can give the Celtics.
From the get-go, Ray Allen was trying to catch fire and continue his hot scoring in from Game 2’s performance. Well, that didn’t go too well, as he went 0-13 from the field, and 0-8 from three. If I’m not mistaken, that’s a whopping 0% for the entire game. Paul Pierce played decently, with 5-12, and dropping in 15 and a weak 2 rebounds and 2 assists. As for Rondo? He played OK, as he gave in 11 points and 8 assists.
So, how did (in my opinion) the most boring game of the series go for the Lakers, and D.Fish?
