Kobe Bryant and the LA Lakers got the job done last night in Game 6 of the NBA Finals with an impressive 89-67 win against the Boston Celtics. With the NBA finals talk focused on offense, it was defense that took center stage on Tuesday night as the Lakers held the Celtics to the second lowest scoring output in NBA Finals history. Although Kobe Bryant only scored 24 points, Ron Artest pitched in 15 and Pau Gasol nearly had a triple-double with 17 points, 13 rebounds, and 9 assists. It’s fitting that the classic Lakers vs Celtics matchup will all come down to a game 7.
