Crucial Game 4 Between Boston Celtics and L.A. Lakers: Celtics Gaining Momentum

It was Los Angeles Laker's chance to even the series at 2-2. Everything was within reach. They were looking good in the early goings of the game. Homecourt advantage, 24-point lead in the first half. But Boston Celtics was all fired up and played like men possessed inside the basketball court with the entire Staples Center cheering against them in Game 4 of the Best of 7 Series of the NBA Championships. The Lakers lost a whooping 24-point lead in a very historic and tragic fashion. It was the biggest comeback ever made by any team in NBA Finals history. Seeing the 24-point lead erased by the Boston Celtics in a wink of an eye, people at the Staples Center were shocked, stunned. The cheering L.A. crowd fell into a horrifying silence!
Interestingly, Kobe Bryant, this year's Most Valuable Player, wasn't able to carry the team with only 17 points. He made only 6 out of 19 attempts (32%). Bryant walked out of the playing court with still 3 seconds remaining while Lakers were making their final shot. What an act from a MVP, huh! I think it was an act of real frustration.
However, the Lakers are looking on to play better in game 5 and promised to bounce back. Game 5 shall be played again at the Staples Center. Unfortunately, no NBA team have ever came back from a 1-3 deficit. Certainly, Laker's back is on the wall. This is one of the things that L.A. Lakers will have to hurdle.

Lermz, I know how sad Andy was with the Lakers down, 1-3 now! Hope they are going to make it in Game 5.
