NBA Finals notes: The "creators"

Every great team has a "creator": A guy they go to late in the game or with time running out. These are the guys who can break a play down and get their shot. In this series, we'll see two of the NBA's great creators: Kobe and Paul Pierce.

Boston must limit Bryant's transition points and his FT attempts. Look for Posey to defend KB late in the game.

Pierce will be the toughest cover for LA. Watch to see how the Lakers scheme for him.
