Default Poll: How will the next 5 games play out? (Predictions)

I'm curious to know what the posters of ISH think about how the next three games at the Staples Center will play out? How about the next 2 back at the Garden? ISH is dominated by Lakers fans and I'd like to hear your input. We all know the Celtics outplayed LA both games and we know about the refs favoring the Celtics in some instances.

Post your predictions (here's an example):

Game 3 - LA
Game 4 - LA
Game 5 - BOS
Game 6 - BOS

Game 3-Lakers blowout
Game 4- Celtics by 2
Game 5- Lakers by 10
Game 6-Lakers win by 1-3 back at boston
Game 7-that's a wild card, but I just think maybe Stern will give it to Kobe to cap his MVP season and to ensure that the big 3 in Boston stay hungry for next year. They'll give the Celtics a 13 point lead going into the 4th so that Kobe can lead the big ref-aided comeback and wind up winning by a small margin, 7 or less.

I'm confident the Celtics can win one of these games, for the Lakers though I don't see how they can win this series without playing much better defense. Paul Pierce is getting any shot he wants in fact the Celtics on a whole are getting a lot of uncontested shots from anywhere on the court. At that Rate the lakers would need to score well over 100 ppg to win games and that just seems unlikely against the celtics defense.

Game 3 LA
Game 4 Bos
Game 5 I think La wins this game but I wont be surprised if the Celts were to clinch in game 5.

Are you serious? I don't things will end this "perfectly." Nice prediction though.

Can you imagine if the Celts had a PG who could actually shoot? Series would be over already.

How exactly would it be over? There would still be two games left.

i dont know about that, Rondo's passiveness is what makes the Celtics offense go in my opinion. you already have KG, Pierce, and Ray, no need for someone else to take 12-13 shots a game that would just hurt the big 3.. Rondo fits in perfectly with them, or atleast doc makes it appear that way

See, it's called hyperbole. Meaning that with the way the first two games have gone, only Rondo's poor shooting can cost Boston the series.

I have to say i admire the Laker fans confidence, what is it about you guys that you have the up most confidence in your team. Not trying to sound like a jerk or anything but I know if it was the Celtics facing 0-2 some Celtic boards would be going through civil war.

Honestly, i had the Celtics winning this series because of the defensive, and rebounding advantages, but my god, that Lakers team looks soft. Boston is getting whatever they want offensively against them. Even though it's heading back to L.A i wouldn't be surprised if Boston won game 3 as well, and ended the series in 5 after L.A. takes game 4 to make it respectable.
