BOSTON — The circus that is the NBA Finals picked up and moved from Los Angeles to Boston today. Game 3 is Tuesday night. Neither team practiced and there were no press conferences scheduled, so most reporters tried their best to put the first two games into context going into the third one. Good luck with that. So far, Pau Gasol has been the steadiest player for either team in the series. He had 23 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks during the Lakers’ victory in Game 1 and then had 25 points, eight rebounds and six blocks in their loss in Game 2. Kevin Garnett of Boston has been the biggest disappointment for either team, narrowly edging Lamar Odom. Gasol said Garnett isn’t the same player he was two years ago and then instead of trying to prove him wrong Garnett went for six points and four rebounds in Game 2. So far, the games have been tough to watch for anyone who appreciates a free-flowing game. Too choppy. Too many fouls. TV timeouts are too long too. Those are just my opinions, but I’m not wrong.
