Back In The Game

At last, the LA Lakers have gotten back into the game ... after losing the first two games of the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics, the LA Lakers finally came back and won game three on their home turf at the Staples Center here in downtown LA last night. Here are a few pics of some of the many celebs who came out in support of their LA Lakers (with Donnie Walberg rooting for the Celitcs) and cheered them on to victory:

In front of a constellation of Hollywood stars, the desperate Los Angeles Lakers nearly faded into oblivion Tuesday night in Game 3 of the NBA Finals before they rallied to subdue the Boston Celtics for an 87-81 victory. Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic's dead-eye shooting — he shot 70% from the floor, including three three-pointers — helped seal the win with a career postseason-high 20 points. Backcourt teammate Kobe Bryant led all scorers with 36 points, including a twisting floater with 38 seconds remaining ... Los Angeles avoided the near-impossible roadblock of needing four consecutive triumphs. No NBA team has overcome a 3-0 lead in any playoff series (0-for-85). The Lakers, 9-0 at the Staples Center this postseason, trail the Celtics 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Game 4 is Thursday night. "Kobe was fantastic," said coach Doc Rivers, whose Celtics are 2-8 on the road in the playoffs. "But I thought Vujacic was the key to the game."

Now, anyone who knows me or even casually reads my blog knows that I'm a big sports person. But I do tend to perk up around Championship games, particularly when my home teams are involved. I watched a bit of the Eastern Conference Finals only to watch my beloved Detroit Pistons fall to the Boston Celtics. Now that Detroit is out of the game, I have to throw my support behind the LA Lakers since they are my adopted hometown. I'm relieved that the Lakers finally woke up and won a game ... it would've been pretty dire had they lost last night's game against the boys from Boston.

To be fair, another major reason that I tend to pay attention to sports is the celebrity involvement (natch) and when it comes to sports celebrities, well, I don't usually miss an appearance by David Beckham. Here are a few pics of Becks with his eldest son Brooklyn at last night's game:

I don't believe that Becks spent any of last night's game ogling the Laker Girls cheerleaders (or at the very least, he wasn't caught ogling any of the cheerleaders) ... he was just there to support his adopted home team in their quest for the NBA Championship. Oh, he was also there to tout his sexy hawtness, too.

I understand that the Lakers are undefeated at home ... which implies that they will tie up the series with a win at home on Thursday. It'd be awesome (for me at least) to have the Detroit Red Wings win the NHL Championship and the LA Lakers win the NBA Championship all in the same year ... c'mon Lakers, do it for me :)
