Ryan's Top 12 Celtics-Lakers games
Game 6, 2008 --The culmination
In the 108th game of their season, the Celtics played like it was their first. Showing that no Celtics team ever played as hard as this unit in each and every game, the Celtics routed the Lakers, 131-92, to win their 17th NBA championship. It was the largest margin of victory in a Finals-clinching game, but it was more than that. It was utter domination, the end of a 22-year losing streak, and validation for the new Big Three. It was bliss.
