Tough to beat
OK I'm a Laker fan talking about the Celtics on a Denver blog. OK this is my reason for being here. There is a good chance that the Nuggets or the Lakers might see Boston in the Finals. The Lakers and the Nuggets are great teams. The biggest flaw I see in the Nuggets is losing to sub 500 teams on the road. If you're gonna make it to the final show you need to win on the road. The Lakers biggest flaw is therir bench. Shannon Brown is their only consistant bench player and that includes Odom. Boston has a defence that can totally shut you down. Denver has a great perimeter team. The Lakers don't. The Lakers have a great inside game with length. The only flaw I see in Boston is winning at home. Come playoff time I think Boston will remedy that problem. So who has a better chance against Boston. I think the Nuggets do. Boston has enough size and ability to completely shut down the Lakers inside game. I think it will be harder for the Celtics to shut down the Nuggets perimeter game.
What are your thoughts on this years finals? I know it's early in the season but barring injuries this scenerio seems to be the most likely matchups!
