Nothing that occured in the first 2 games of this series makes me think Boston will be able to sweep the 3 home games, while they haven't played their best in games 1 and 2, neither have the Lakers. I think the biggest thing to come out of the first 2 games is how bad Kevin Garnett has been. He might be playing worse than Jermaine O'Neal did in the first round. KG has got to play better because the Celts can't count on Ray Allen making 8 threes in 3 more games. Unfortunately for Boston, I'm not sure if he has anything left.

I still like LA in 7
For the first time this postseason the Lakers do not have homecourt advantage. They haven't been great on the road in their first 3 series, but they have stepped up in big spots, winning game sixes in Oklahoma City and Phoenix. The Lakers could not win in Boston in 2008, but I think they will be able to get at least a game their this series, and I wouldn't be shocked if they won twice.
