LeBron James will look to add to his legacy on Wednesday night vs. the Boston Celtics.

With the Miami Heat leading the highly anticipated series 3-1, the veteran-led Celtics find themselves with their backs against the wall and LeBron breathing down their necks.

How can the Celtics combat Miami's Big Three?

Kevin Garnett knows it's going to be tough.

"When our back is against the wall, that’s when we show great resilience," Garnett said. "We’ll see what we’re made of."

The team better come out with a fire to their game and a passion for winning, because if they play with the same effort they showed in Game 4, it's going to be a long flight back to Logan International Airport.

If the Celtics can find a way to extend the series, Game 6 will be back at the TD Garden in Boston on Friday night and would be aired on ESPN.

And as for their arch rival Lakers...

After the team was swept in the second round at the hands of the Dallas Mavericks, the Lakers conducted some of their exit interviews on Tuesday.

The majority of the players have endorsed Brian Shaw to be the next head coach, but according to Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times, that's not the only thing being discussed.

"When it comes to hiring coaches, the Buss family seemingly strives to outsmart everyone, and it usually works, because that thin air has produced the likes of Pat Riley and Phil Jackson. But then, it's also rained Rudy Tomjanovich and Randy Pfund, so the process is weird, and you never really know."

It should be interesting to see who winds up leading the Lakers in 2011-12.

We'll run through updates on this and more, so make sure to stay tuned into the NBA channel on B/R.
