The Lakers had a rough time shooting last night hitting only 32.5% from the floor but they outrebounded the Celtics 53-40 which helped make up for the poor shooting. The Lakers rose up in the 4th quarter outscoring the Celtics 30-22 to seal the win and the NBA Championship. Kobe Bryant only shot 6 of 24 from the floor but he still finished up with 23 points, 15 rebounds and 2 assists. Ron Artest had a big game too hitting a key three pointer late in the 4th quarter to put the Lakers up 4 points. He finished up with 20 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist and 5 steals. Pau Gasol did all of the dirty work inside, as usual, for the Lakers finishing up with 19 points, 18 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocked shots. The Lakers win this series 4-3 to win their 16th NBA Championship in franchise history!
