A lot of fans are expecting a very high combined score for these two teams, but we don’t think that’s going to happen. Oregon is a top-25 team in total defense and No. 14 in scoring defense. The Ducks give up an average 18.4 points per game while Auburn’s defense gives up 24.5. Expect the Ducks to start out slow (as usual) and Auburn to try and capitalize on some stalled drives in the first half. The second half should be all Ducks, as the Tigers won’t be able to contain the speed of Oregon’s attack.
The Los Angeles Lakers complete the quest for the NBA Championship and take the series from Orlando 4-1 with a 99-86 victory. Kobe Bryant scored 30, Lamar Odom who had some spectacular plays during the game, added 17 pts, no one for Orlando had more than 18 points, Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard only had 11 points to end a very disappointing Finals run. The key to the game was in the second quarter when the Lakers went on a 16-2 run to put the game out of reach,they outscored Orlando 30-18 in that quarter and that proved to be the deciding factor in the game.
Derek Fisher & Kobe Bryant join Shaq & Tim Duncan as the only active players with 4 rings, L.A coach Phil Jackson collected his 10th ring as a coach and 12th ring overall as coach/player, he surpasses the legendary Red Auerbach as NBA Finals winningest coach.
Phil & Kobe win 4th Title together
This win gives the Lakers 4 titles during this decade making them the team of the decade,check out the rings of previous Lakers Championships.
