It may have been expected that LeBron James would somehow be involved in the Eastern Conference Finals this year, but the Celtics showed all those who doubted them, that they deserved to be there Sunday. Boston handed the Magic their first loss of the post-season, with a 92-88 victory on the Magic’s home court in Orlando.

In the Western Conference Finals, the Lakers had everything working properly as they dismantled the Suns with a lesson in how to run the triangle offense effectively. Kobe Bryant, despite rumors of a bum knee, finished with 40 points, his sixth consecutive game with thirty or more. Lamar Odom also added 19 points and 19 rebounds as the Lakers won 128-107.
