Ambassador At Large's picks:
Jazz at Lakers: The worst thing for Utah is that Kobe is playing hurt. This has MJ Flu Game written all over it. Kobe goes for 35, drains a late 3 to ice it, Lakers win by 10 and we spend the next 48 hours, possibly the next 48 years, hearing about how "heroic" and "courageous" Kobe's performance was.
Cavs at Celtics: KG probably didn't like being posterized at the end of Game 4. Not one bit. He will be mad. Very, very mad. LeBron has another dreadful shooting night, as does everybody else on both teams. Boston wins. If either team scores 80 points, I'll be surprised. And this will not be a pretty game. When the Bulls-Jazz NBA Finals scores were all in the low 70s, that was because of great defense. When the Celtics score 12 points in the 4th quarter at Cleveland, and STILL almost win the game, it's because the offenses of both these teams have been completely dreadful.
Although if Bill Simmons' hysterical Doc Rivers takedown is any guide, I'm more confident about my LA pick than my Boston pick.
