Podcast: The Fish That Saved L.A.

In Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo led the Boston Celtics to victory by each player dominating  half of the game.  Allen played lights out in the first half by scoring 27 points, and then Rondo took over down the stretch with his all-around game.

The Lakers must have taken diligent notes.

During their 91-84 victory over the Boston Celtics last night, the Lakers used similar tactic.  Through the first three quarters, Kobe Bryant scored 25 points, despite a less than stellar shooting night.  But in the fourth quarter, when he could not seem to score at all, Derek Fisher stepped up and scored 11 big points, and showed why he’s such a valuable member of this team.

In this version of the Hoops Addict Podcast, Rashad and Ryan discuss Fisher’s big fourth quarter, the large role the referees played in this game, the resurgence of Kevin Garnett, and the uneven play of the Celtics’ Big 4.
