Los Angeles — Pack up the championship trophy and book a flight back to Boston. The NBA finals aren't over yet.
The Los Angeles Lakers are headed East to try a historic comeback of their own.
Kobe Bryant scored 25 points, including a decisive dunk in the final minute - and Lamar Odom added 20 as the Lakers, playing with pride on their star-studded stage, prevented the Celtics from winning a 17th title with a 103-98 victory in Game 5 on Sunday night to close to 3-2 in this restored rivalry.
"We've won on the road before," Bryant said. "We've played in tough environments."
The Lakers, who blew a 24-point lead and lost Game 4, nearly squandered a 19-point lead in Game 5.
