Lakers Celtics Game 5 NBA Finals Line Moves To -2

After opening at Boston -3 ½, the Lakers Celtics line on Game 5 of the 2010 NBA Finals has dropped all the way to -2 at a number of online sportsbooks including BetUS.com (see website here)  This represents the biggest line move we have witnessed during this NBA Finals series.

The Celtics can move a win away from an 18th championship, and a 10th in 12 meetings with the Lakers.

Kobe Bryant can inch closer to a fifth title, a chance to further cement his legacy.

The finals are tied after four games for the first time since 2006. Of the 25 series that were tied 2-all, the winner of Game 5 won 19 of them.

A victory in Boston on Sunday gives the Lakers two chances to wrap it up at home, while a loss means Bryant is closer to going 0-2 against Boston in the finals. He said he couldn't go down as the greatest Lakers player ever if he never beats the Celtics.

Mike Rose, BetUS.com Analyst: "The Celtics are 5-0 ATS in their L/5 clashes when playing on two days of rest.

"With Lakers C Andrew Bynum's knee once again giving him problems, I really feel the Celtics now hold the overall advantage in the paint. That's huge considering the team that's won the rebounding battle is now a perfect 4-0 ATS in this series.

"Doc Rivers has also done a masterful job with his substitutions, and I think he's done a better job coaching his club than Phil Jackson's done looking upon his.

"If the Celtics lose this game, the NBA Finals will almost certainly be lost. Again, I feel as though the Lakers have to feel somewhat accomplished by their games in Beantown. If Kobe goes off for 40+ and the Lakers beat me, so be it! That said; I don't see it happening."
