Is Lakers Celtics in the Finals a Foregone Conclusion?

The Eastern and Western Conference series have been exciting at times. As the Suns played a miraculous 3rd quarter in which they scored 34 points to tie the score at 90 heading into the 4th quarter. Steve Nash sat for a little bit, and then the Lakers took over and won the game. The Celtics Magic series has been just been dominated by the Celtics. The Celtics have led the Magic in each game for almost the entire game. In Tuesday's game between the Celtics and Magic, the Magic led by one with one minute to go, but choked at the end of the game and showed no composure in the late periods of the game. Vince Carter likely ruined his reputation by missing two free throws at the end of the game that would have trimmed the lead to one point. The Celtics have been dominant and are clearly the better team as they have a 2-0 lead heading home. The Suns seemed to be overmatched by the Lakers size and skill. Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol are playing great basketball and the Suns have no answer for them. Still if the Suns even the series by winning two straight at home, it could make this a compelling series.
