Here's the logic: Kobe Bean Bryant
honestly, part of me is nervous/pessimistic, the other side realizes that our starters are far superior to theirs. if just ONE bench player steps up, and we play consistent D THROUGH the 4th, it shouldn't be a problem. Game 4 was there for the taking, just let things spiral out of control in the 4th and even then, lakers had a chance at the end, but just had some bad blunders, some bad calls and just below avg effort.
but I'm still waiting for a signature Kobe game, offensively speaking. Once that comes, it's over for boston. question is, will it come this series
