Two Games Left in LA, One Win Needed

Two games left to play in Los Angeles, and the Celtics must win one. The C’s need to go back to Boston up 3-2 or face dramatically reduced odds of winning the series.

Kevin Garnett is 29-78 in his last four games, having shot below .500 in each of them. He puts crooked numbers on the board in the first three quarters, but can't be counted on for offense down the stretch.

Paul Pierce, meanwhile, shot 2-14 in game 3, which can be forgiven since he was the difference maker in games 1 and 2.

Ray Allen had a big game in a losing effort, not the first time we’ve seen that happen this post season.

None of this really matters much, because at this point of the season talk is meaningless and the only thing that remains is to get the job done or prepare for a long summer.

The Celtics can make this easy for themselves by winning the next game, or face the prospect of having to win game 5 in LA to prevent the Lakers from returning to Boston with a tidal wave of momentum.
