After LA's timeout, things turned bad momentarily for Boston, as Kobe Bryant picked up four points in just 40 seconds, while Paul Pierce missed one of two free throws. The lead was trimmed to just two. Then James Posey buried a huge three-pointer on an assist from Ray Allen, and the lead was back to five. On the other end, Derek Fisher hit a wide-open long shot that could have been a three, but his foot was on the line, and the Celtics retained a 92-89 lead.
