It' on tonight.....whom will win

Celtics v. Lakers

 

Last time these 2 teams meet in June was in 1987.  The Lakers, led by Magic Johnson beat Larry Bird and the Celtics 4-2.  Since that point the Celtics had ZERO success and some bad luck.  The Lakers, went on to the championship 7 times and winning 5.  Interesting stat I saw the other day is Phil Jackson, the Lakers coach, is 38-0 in series when his team wins Game 1. 

21 years in the making....

So who is going to win?
