Game 3 coming up, and we’re in LA.
And honestly? I really don’t know what to expect.
Yes, I expect the Lakers to play better. But as I’ve stated, not actually sure that it was entirely their fault that they couldn’t get a rhythm going at either end of the court in game 2… not going to get into it again – my thoughts behind that are well-documented here (in other posts).
I think that you’ll see a lot of the LA squad play with renewed vigor (which we did see at the beginning of game 2)… and I think you’ll see fewer touch-fouls called on the LA guys as well, which should allow them to get into the game flow a little better.
It will be interesting to see if the homecourt advantage that was so strong over in Boston equates to anything for LA.
