Pre-NBA Finals

Injuries reports of Boston Celtics.

Rajon Rondo & Rasheed Wallace of Boston Celtics limited in practice.

Rajon Rondo hit the deck hard, grimacing after being fouled. Glen Davis played through dizziness from a concussion. Rasheed Wallace put up with a painful back.
The Boston Celtics needed some time off.
That is just what they got, with a five-day break between games before starting the NBA finals against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Rondo was floored by Jason Williams while driving to the basket during Game 6. He landed awkwardly on his back.
“He’s going to be OK,” Rivers said. “I’m more concerned with Rasheed, honestly. Rasheed got tight. You could see it.”
Paul Pierce is another player who needs a respite from the battering he took in the physical series with the Magic.
“I’ve got a couple injuries that I kind of want to cure. Just minor stuff like foot, back, stuff like that,” Pierce said. “But nothing major for me, you know. Running into Dwight Howard really doesn’t help your body."

Paul Pierce excited to return to NBA Finals, hometown
Celtics guard Paul Pierce will face the tough defense of Lakers guard Ron Artest.

Paul Pierce is excited to return to the NBA finals and his hometown for the next round in the league's greatest rivalry.
Boston's best player isn't exactly thrilled that Los Angeles' welcoming committee includes Ron Artest, a physical, tenacious defender.
“He likes to bang you,” Pierce said Monday, “grab you, hold you, pull your shorts down. He's going to try anything.”

One of the most storied rivalries in all of sports --- the Lakers vs. the Celtics

Dynasty vs. Dynasty

The crowd for Game 1 of the best-of-seven series will see the newest installment of a rivalry that goes back more than 50 years — to the 1959 finals when Boston swept the Minneapolis Lakers in four games. The franchises clashed in six finals in the ‘60s. Then came the ‘80s and three Larry Bird-Magic Johnson championship rounds, two of them won by the Lakers.
It took more than 20 years for the teams to match up again in 2008 when the Celtics captured their NBA-high 17th title.
Another championship would mean “everything,” Pierce said. “Hopefully, it can move me up the ranks as one of the top Celtics players of all time and maybe in NBA history.”
The Celtics, without injured Kevin Garnett, were eliminated in the Eastern semifinals last year and the Lakers beat Orlando in the finals. Soon after, Pierce said he was on the West Coast walking his dog in his neighborhood when he saw Los Angeles coach Phil Jackson in a convertible at a stop sign.
“I just said congratulations to him,” Pierce said. “I think he probably mentioned something (like) ‘See you in the finals next year.'”
Now that series is just a few days away.
“I think both teams are happy they're playing the team they're playing,” Rivers said. “I think it's exactly the way we envisioned it during training camp and it's probably the same way they envisioned it."

Boston Celtics vs. Orlando Magic GAME 6

Eastern Conference Finals

Boston Celtics vs. Orlando Magic - GAME 6

Boston Celtics crowned the 2010 Season Playoff : Eastern Conference Finals' Champion as they beat Orlando Magic 96-84 in Game 6 at home.

Rajon Rondo took a big fall that kept him out for most of the second half.

Nate Robinson entered the game in the second quarter and sparked the Celtics' offense.
Earning 13 points in a quarter.

The Magic made some, mostly mini, runs, but Boston always had an answer. 
The first window came at the onset of the second quarter, when Rajon Rondo was laying face down on the sidelines after taking a hard fall. This put Nate Robinson, who had played all of 44 minutes in the playoffs, front and center.

His response? A 13-point quarter that staved off Orlando's composed effort.

"Here's a guy that didn't play too much all series and gave us a lift," Tony Allen said. "He was ready for his opportunity and he took clean advantage of it."

 Doc Rivers, head coach of Celtics, communicating with his players from the sideline.

Paul Pierce scored a team-high 31 points as the Celtics won 96-84 to take the series 4-2.

In the loss, the Magics had done their best.
Now, in the Eastern Conference Finals, where both teams are talented & skilled, it's no longer about seeing which team is more skillful & has got more talent. 
It's about who wants it most and willing to do it at all cost.

Vince Carter, who had 17 points, 7 rebounds & three assists, breaking through the defensive traffic for the layup in this picture.

Dwight Howard gives his best, goes for a two-handed slam in this picture, had 28 points, 12 rebounds which includes 3 offensive.

Howard takes a moment to gather himself in Game 6 where Orlando's postseason journey came to an end.

Top 4 Celtics & Magics end-game statistics in Game 6.

Now that 2010 Season Playoffs : Eastern Conference Finals had come to an end, Boston Celtics heads into the NBA Finals as they awaits their 'to-be-determined' opponent of either LAL / PHX.

Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers GAME 5

Western Conference Finals

Phoenix Suns vs. Los Angeles Lakers - GAME 5

Needless to say, video above is the game recap of PHX vs. LAL of game 5.

Ron Artest seemingly didn't know how to celebrate.
With his arms half raised for a second, Artest looked around shocked. Then as he turned, Artest saw Kobe Bryant and wrapped his arms around him as the two began jumping up and down in jubilation.

Following a short 3-point attempt by Bryant, Artest outmuscled Jason Richardson to the rebound and wound up banking in the putback at the buzzer as the Lakers took a thrilling 103-101 victory over the Suns in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals Thursday at Staples Center.
 The Lakers get ready for a crucial Game 5 at home against the Suns.

Kobe Bryant, had 30 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, gets the step on Grant Hill on his way to the basket in this picture.

"Defensively," Bryant said. "We were terrific."

Bryant had himself a big game after getting picking up two fouls in the first two minutes and 35 seconds.
In the second period, Bryant had 13 point and drained three consecutive 3-pointers. That onslaught was part of a 13-0 run, lifting the Lakers to a 41-25 lead with 6:14 left in the second period.

Fisher had a huge game as well, picking up the slack with Bryant in foul trouble. He scored 11 points in the first quarter and helped the Lakers grab a 24-21 lead at the end of the first quarter despite trailing by as many as seven points.
Derek Fisher ended with a score of 22 points, 1 rebound and four assists.

Andrew Bynum, taking Amar'e Stoudemire in the post in this picture, scored 2 points & 7 rebounds which includes 5 offensive ones.

To build a lead that swelled to as many as 18 in the third quarter, the Lakers had to make adjustments.
After succumbing to the Suns' zone in Phoenix, it seemed the Lakers figured it out. 
 They penetrated inside and worked inside and out. That helped them go on a 16-5 run in the third quarter.
Gasol, who had 21, and Odom (17 points and 13 rebounds) were the beneficiaries, flashing and scoring in the paint time after time.

 Ron Artest celebrates his game-winning buzzer beater with Kobe Bryant. The Lakers went up 3-2 in the series with a 103-101 win over Phoenix.
An otherwise forgettable stat line for Artest -- four points, five rebounds and three steals -- now has the defending champions in prime position to return to the NBA Finals as Los Angeles took a 3-2 series lead and can close out the series Saturday in Phoenix.

In the loss :
Amar'e Stoudemire, getting his game face ready against the Lakers in this picture, had 19 points and four rebounds.

After the game, the Suns tried to stomach the defeat.
"We got to swallow this one," said Amar'e Stoudemire.

Steve Nash, hitting a teammate with a sweet no-look pass in this picture, had 29 points, 11 assists & three rebounds which includes two offensive ones.

After the game, Nash made it clear that his team won't have a letdown in a possible closeout game Saturday.
"They held home court," Nash said. 
"We'll go back and do the same. We'll come back here for Game 7."

 Top 4 end-game statistics of Suns & Lakers in game 5 below.
