The Boston Celtics are exactly where they want to be after taking the first two sports gambling games of the NBA Finals in their own backyard and look poised to bring a title back to Beantown for the first time in the Internet gambling era.
Although slightly favored in the sports gambling odds to win game one not many people involved with Internet gambling expected the Lakers to return to LA empty handed. But the defense of the Celtics has been fantastic and the Lakers will have to dig deep if they want to make a series of this sports gambling match up.
It’s been over two decades since the Celtic have been in the NBA Finals and they don’t appear ready to squander the chance. Up early in Game Two it seemed as if the Celts would run away with the game and likely the sports gambling series. With just eight minutes left in the Internet gambling match up the home team Celtics led by 24 points. But the Lakers still had plenty left in reserve and after a major butt-chewing by Kobe Bryant the visitors cut the lead to just two points, must to the astonishment of many sports gambling fans. After a barrage of three pointers (an NBA finals sports gambling record of seven in the quarter) and some clever defense the Lakers were in easy striking distance, but it wasn’t meant to be.
Celtics captain Paul Pierce stepped up with some timely baskets and some tremendous defense and the Celtics won a sports gambling nail-biter. With Game three on the horizon the Lakers have an enormous hole to dif themselves out of. Only three other teams in the history of sport gambling have comeback from a 0-2 deficit, most recently the Miami Heat in 2005.
Over coming this deficit won’t be impossible and certainly if there’s any team in sports gambling that can do it, it’s the Lakers. But the Celtics have looked very impressive and are clearly in control of this sports gambling match up thus far. If the Celtics can win even one game in LA this series will be for all intents and purposes over and sports gambling fans in Boston will throw the biggest party on the entire Eastern seaboard.
