The Lakers won their series last night. The Celtics have won theirs tonight. The NBA Finals match up is set. So, we’re ready to go, right?
Nope. The Finals don’t start for 6 days. Whee… Hope you weren’t excited about the start of that series, ‘cuz it won’t be here for a while.
In the meantime, I was looking at the Finals schedule this morning and was reminded that the series will be in the ridiculous 2-3-2 format. So, the Celtics have home court “advantage” and yet, the Lakers, a team that hasn’t lost at home this post season, will get to play three home games before they do.
Given the way the Celtics have played, I would not be surprised to see the Lakers steal one in Boston and then win their 3 games at home to take the series without going back to Boston.
