Perkins: Lakers wanted it more

LOS ANGELES - Kendrick Perkins offered a simple explanation as to why the Lakers outplayed the Celtics in Game 1 of the NBA finals.

 

“I just think they wanted it more and they came out and showed it.” he said following the Celtics 102-89 loss.

 

Perkins believes the Celtics were missing the intensity they had exhibited in the previous three rounds. He would not use the nearly-week long layoff as an excuse either.

 

"Our energy level on both ends has been high throughout the playoffs. I think we were missing just our intensity. Our energy wasn’t there,“ he said. "We hung our heads a lot, we didn’t attack, we fouled every time down tonight. So I just think we’ve got to, first thing, stick together and bounce back in Game 2. We’ve got to go back, watch film, and come back down to earth and do what we do that got us here. We’ve got to get back to our...

Doc: 'They were far more physical'

LOS ANGELES -- All the numbers and all the statistics can really be distilled into one simple fact for Doc Rivers. "They were by far the more physical team," Rivers said after losing Game 1 of the NBA finals, 102-89. The Lakers phsyical nature was manifiested in a 42-31 rebounding edge, but it was more than just that for Rivers. "They attacked us the entire night," he said. "I didn't think we handled it very well."

Lakers gain early jump, win Game 1

Kobe Bryant scored a game-high 30 points and the Celtics battled foul trouble all night as the Lakers captured Game 1 of the 2010 NBA Finals, 102-89, Thursday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Pau Gasol was also huge for the Lakers with 23 points and 14 rebounds, including eight on the offensive glass. 

 

Paul Pierce had 24 to lead the Celtics and Kevin Garnett added 16. Pierce and Ray Allen also picked up five personal fouls apiece, with Allen forced to play the entire fourth quarter one foul away from disqualification. 

 

Doc Rivers worst fears about the Lakers on the glass were realized in the loss, as Los Angeles outrebounded Boston, 42-31. Game 2 is set for 8 p.m. ET on Sunday night.

Reports: John Wooden in 'grave' condition

John Wooden, the 99-year-old legendary coach of the UCLA basketball dynasty, has been hospitalized in "grave condition" at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to KCAL9/CBS2 in LA. 

 

The station also reports that the first person ever selected for the Basketball Hall of Fame as a player and coach has not eaten for the last "couple of" days.

 

The Washington Post retracted an earlier story saying Wooden had passed.  

 

The "Wizard of Westwood" coached at UCLA from 1948–75 where he won 10 national championships, including an unprecedented 10 NCAA championships in his final 12 seasons and a record seven straight from 1967 to 1973. The Bruins also won 88...

NBA will revisit double technical issue

LOS ANGELES -- Speaking to reporters before Game 1 of the NBA finals, commissioner David Stern said that the NBA would revisit the issue of having double technical fouls count against a player's allotment during the postseason. Celtics center Kendrick Perkins has accumulated six technical fouls and one more would trigger an automatic one-game suspension. Doc Rivers has said repeatedly over the last week that double technicals should not count against a player. "I think Doc actually has a point," Stern said. "As much as I hate to agree with Doc."
