The teams split their first two games in Los Angeles with the Lakers winning easily in Game 1 while the Celtics bounced back behind Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo on Game 2. Now the series lead will be on the line on Tuesday night in a game that can be seen on ABC. Boston is a 2.5 point favorite with a total of 192.5 at online sportsbook Bovada.
Allen and Rondo carried the Celtics on Sunday in their 103-94 win. The Lakers were plagued by foul trouble and they simply couldn’t stop Allen or Rondo. The Celtics got an NBA Finals odds record eight three-pointers from Allen in the Game 2 victory and they needed them. Kevin Garnett was invisible again and Paul Pierce is not the player he used to be.
The Celtics won thanks to Allen’s shooting and Rondo’s all around game and because Kobe Bryant and many of the other Lakers were in foul trouble all night.
