Ryan, Shaughnessy recap Game 5

LOS ANGELES — Boston Globe columnists Bob Ryan and Dan Shaughnessy recap Game 5 of the NBA Finals on the heels of the the Lakers’ 103-98 triumph over the Celtics at the Staples Center.

Ryan says the Lakers didn’t exactly dazzle in Los Angeles, but they did enough to win two of the three games here and send this series back to Boston. Shaughnessy says history will just have to wait as the Celtics missed an opportunity to capture banner No. 17 Sunday.
