Lakers - Victory in Game 3

BOSTON -- Derek Fisher broke down the court after yet another miss by Ray Allen, with nothing between him and the basket. And nothing -- not even three hard-charging Celtics -- was going to keep the Los Angeles Lakers guard from finishing off a Game 3 victory.
A hard foul from all three pursuing Celtics sent Fisher sprawling to the floor, but not before he laid in his fifth basket of the fourth quarter and converted the three-point play to help the Lakers beat Boston 91-84 and take a 2-1 lead in the NBA finals.

Bryant had 25 points after three quarters, but he did not score for the first 10 minutes of the fourth. That's when Fisher took over, hitting four of five Lakers baskets after Boston cut a 17-point first-half lead down to one point to reclaim the home-court advantage they lost when the Celtics won Game 2 in L.A.
Game 4 is Thursday night in Boston, and a Lakers victory would put them within one win of avenging the loss to their longtime rivals in the 2008 finals -- not to mention the eight other times the Celtics have won an NBA title at the Lakers' expense.
