    ‘Miserable’ Kobe Bryant, Lakers ready for Game 5

    'Miserable' Kobe Bryant, Lakers ready for Game 5 - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

    BOSTON (AP)—The Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers are headed to a pivotal Game 5 of the NBA finals, the latest big moment in their storied rivalry.

    The Celtics can move a win away from an 18th championship, and a 10th in 12 meetings with the Lakers.

    Kobe Bryant(notes) can inch closer to a fifth title, a chance to further cement his legacy.

    Have to love it, right?

    Not if you’re Bryant.

    “I’m miserable,” he said on Saturday.

    That’s because of the Celtics, who guarded him well in the fourth quarter of their 96-89 victory on Thursday that evened the series at two games apiece, and simply won’t allow him to be as spectacular as he was against Phoenix in the previous round.

    Game 5 is on Sunday, and the Lakers expect to have center Andrew Bynum(notes) back after he played only 12 minutes
    in Game 4 because of a sore right knee.

    Lakers coach Phil Jackson thought Bryant looked tired in that game, and Bryant was even asked if he’d tweaked his knee. Combine that with all the talk of how well the Celtics have defended him, and suddenly those doubters that surfaced when Bryant looked so worn down late in the regular season are popping up again.

    “That’s what they do,” Bryant said. “They show up, disappear, show up, disappear. That’s part of it.”

    He can silence them again with a big effort on Sunday. That’s not easy against these Celtics, who didn’t flinch when they had to face Dwyane Wade(notes) in the first round or LeBron James
    (notes) in the second, and weren’t fazed when
    Bryant scored 30 in the Lakers’ series-opening victory.

    Bryant managed only two field goals in the decisive fourth quarter of Game 4, and Boston limited him to only one in the last 12 minutes of the previous game.

    “They don’t want me to beat them, so they put three guys there,” Bryant said. “Nothing we haven’t seen before, it’s just when you win those games, like Game 3, nobody talks about that because we take advantage of it. And if you lose the game, everybody talks about that. It’s part of the process.”

    With Pau Gasol(notes) the only other Laker who’s hurt them, the Celtics can afford to turn even more attention to
    Bryant, who is averaging 28.3 points but on just 41 percent shooting.

    “Our whole thing is all five guys doing it together,” Ray Allen(notes) said. “And when you got all five guys on the same
    page and focused and in tune on (assistant) Tom Thibodeau’s defensive strategies, I think it makes it difficult for guys, superstars.”

    The finals are tied after four games for the first time since 2006. Of the 25 series that were tied 2-all, the winner of Game 5 won 19 of them.

    A victory in Boston on Sunday gives the Lakers two chances to wrap it up at home, while a loss means Bryant is closer to losing both of his finals matchups against Boston. He said he couldn’t go down as the greatest Lakers player ever if he never beats the Celtics.

    Bryant considers Jerry West to have that title. Yet he never beat the Celtics either, whereas Magic Johnson did it twice.

    “What is everybody’s fascination with the Celtics in terms of going down in history?” Bryant said. “It’s a little weird to me.”

    With Bynum’s injury, and Ron Artest(notes) and Lamar Odom’s
    (notes) inconsistency, the Lakers have had to play Bryant and
    Gasol for long minutes. The burden is heavier on Bryant, who has battled injuries throughout the second half of the season, and it’s likely the reason for his fourth-quarter struggles.

    The Celtics are the older team but seem fresher, since a more productive bench has allowed their starters to get some rest during the series. Jackson would like to give Bryant the same opportunity.

    “I’ve got to find a little space and time for him to give him some rest in that situation so he can come back with renewed energy,” Jackson said. “But after he’s played 30-plus minutes, to have that kind of energy to finish a game out is important to us, and we’ve got to get that back.”

    Kobe may be a whiny little pussy but he is still the best player in the game, better than that asshole prick Lebron James. Talk about an immature fuckwad. I loathe, detest, despise, and abhor him with a white hot burning hatred hotter and brighter than ten thousand supernovas.

    *bitchy pissy rant over*

    Well not much can be said, except these Lakers are starting to resemble 2008's Lakers.

    You know Boston ain't going to let up Tuesday, so the Lake show better get their act together or it's gone fishing.

    I'm hoping Ray Allen starts making 3's again. He's missed something like 16 in a row.

    They're saying that the Celtics have never lost a series (or was it finals) where they were up 3 games to 2.

    But on the other hand, Phil Jackson has never lost a series when his teams have won the first game.

    So as one commenter said, something's got to give!

    Well the Celtics just kicked ass with that shooting. Damn. Except for Kobe, the rest of the Lakers just could not match up with 60% + shooting.

    I think the Celtics are gonna take this thing. They will win at least one of the next two games I think. I think the Lakers are goin' fishin'. Shit.

    Oh well... I do like the Celtics(not as much as the Lakers, but I still like the team) so I can live with it.

    I'm not rooting for anyone, but I am definitely rooting against the Lakers.
