Lakers vs Celtics

We have ONE key to winning this game…LAMAR ODOM being ON! Their is no one on the Celtics bench who can guard him one on one including KG. So let’s see what happens!
As we can see the man started 6-6, and had 2 more fg’s after that. But I must say it was not his fault. I must say…I never understand why when a team is having so much success at something they just GO AWAY from it, and start chucking shots up. Credit the Boston defense…they took the Lakers out of what was working for them, and chipped away at that 24pt. lead, and had their way, and I must say Ray Allen is an absolute STUD.

The Los Angeles Sparks received some big help from a rookie from the University of Tennessee on Wednesday night. And it wasn’t Candace Parker.

Shannon Bobbitt entered the game midway through the opening quarter and contributed seven points, three assists and two rebounds the remainder of the quarter in a 80-73 victory over the Detroit Shock at Staples Center.

Former WNBA rookie of the year Temeka Johnson, a 5-foot-3 point guard who had started every game for the Sparks this season, did not dress after a zero-point, no-assist, four-turnover performance in the 85-79 loss to Phoenix. Keisha Brown, who made the first start in her eight-year WNBA career, teamed with the 5-3 Bobbitt to give the Sparks better production at the position.

Bobbitt played 19 minutes.

Brown replaced Bobbitt at the 7:36 mark of the second quarter and quickly made two jump shots to give the Sparks their biggest lead, 43-30, with 6:44 remaining in the half.

“I thought we needed a bigger guard in there,” Sparks coach Michael Cooper said of his decision to insert Brown into the starting lineup.”

Bobbitt made all four of her free throws but was 1-of-8 shooting.

Los Angeles made 24 of 24 free-throw attempts and was carried by a balanced offense after Parker fell into early foul trouble.

Parker finished with 10 points, the lowest total of her young professional career.

Detroit rookie guard Alexis Hornbuckle of the Lady Vols played 27 minutes and scored 8 points, but was 1-of-8 shooting.
