It's a cliche to say that anything can happen in Game 7, but in this series' case, it's true. Not only have the two teams split three games, but they've done so in so many different ways. There are no real patterns to this series, leaving tonight's game as the ultimate 'Who knows?' scenario.
At least that's what SB Nation's Lakers blog Silver Screen and Roll writes:
The concept of "anything can happen in Game Seven" is a cliche that has been pretty well worn out, but in this game, the cliche rings true. Why? Because anything already has happened. It's been happening for six straight games. You'd think, considering the number of times these teams have played each other, considering how well they know the other's game plan inside and out, that there would be some level of consistency at this point, but there isn't. Six games have been played, and the only games that looked even remotely similar to each other were Games One and Six. The rest have played out like results on a roulette wheel. You can bet on red or black (the teams) but if you hit the actual number (the way the game plays out) it's just dumb luck.
It's true: nothing in this series has gone as expected. Join them (and me) in being happily ignorant about what's going to go down tonight.
