Lakers fall behind 2-0

Celtics run away 108-102, even though the Lakers — down 24 points in the fourth period — closed to within two with 38 seconds left. So far in the series the Lakers don't look like a championship team, but they come home to Staples Center for games Tuesday, Thursday and, with any luck, next Sunday. ESPN

At the Ravine: The Cubs beat the Dodgers 3-1, meaning Brad Penny hasn't won a start since May 2. New shortstop Angel Berroa went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts in his Dodgers debut (and return to the majors after a couple of years trying to find himself in the minor leagues.) Also: Former Cub Doug Glanville writes the latest in a series of op-eds in the New York Times, this time about losing first place in the 2003 season.
