Well...it was a nice thought. The Lakers just have too many clutch players. Horry hits every 3 pointer that means anything, Kobe appears to be invincible in the 4th (save that one bone-headed play in that Spurs game) and Shaq is all of the sudden hitting his FTs (relatively so). Jason Kidd may not be much of a shooter in general, but he is the only Net who is hitting the shots that mean anything. That just won't cut it.
Lakers are motivated for a sweep, something this bunch has never done in the finals. NJ had their best oppertunity last night. I look for NJ to fold like a napkin in game 4. Lakers will win it easily even though they say close-out games are more difficult. :yes:
