For the first time in 21 years, the Celtics and rival Los Angeles Lakers faced each other in the 2008 NBA Finals. Fans eagerly showed their team pride with “Beat LA” shirts. With rooters behind them at home, the Celtics dominated at TD Garden by winning Games 1 and 2 and returned for the Game 6 finale with a 39-point victory – setting a new record for the biggest series-clinching win in NBA history. Go C’s!
