Goats: Los Angeles Lakers
Game: Game 4, 2008 NBA Finals
21 years after the last classic Boston-L.A. Finals match-up, we were blessed with another chapter in the storied Celtics-Lakers rivalry. Except this chapter was kind of short and shitty. Boston held home court through the first two games, but the Lakers suffered an epic collapse in Game 4. With a chance to tie the series L.A. took a 35-14 first quarter lead, the largest in Finals history. The lead grew to 24 in the second half. And then...the wheels fell off the bandwagon. Fueled by a 21-3 third quarter run, Boston took their first lead late in the fourth and the Lakers were stunned. What was a sure 2-2 tie, became a 3-1 series deficit. Adding insult to injury the Celtics won the series clinching Game 6 by a Finals-record 39 points.
