The Lakers are 1-0 in the final series of the playoffs and it’s looking good. They’ve finally got in a groove on defense. But probably the most comforting aspect of the game for me was that Doc River’s strategy was to stop Kobe. Not only did the Celtics fail at stopping Kobe—for the most part—but Kobe was only part of their problem. Kobe and Gasol, the gruesome twosome, had a combined 53 points in the game and kept linking up. The entire Lakers triangle offense kept the entire team scoring well. The Celtics brought their own renowned defense to the game along with intensity, but it wasn’t anywhere near enough. The next game should be closer in scoring, considering the Celtics will be more reluctant to allow their big three to get into foul trouble early.
We still have our work cut out for us if we want to pull this series off, but we’re off to an optimistic start. That being said, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t dress up head to toe in gold and purple for Sunday’s game and come to Benjies Deli to be with your friends. Enjoy some of their new Kobe Beef Sliders and watch the Celtics fail at stopping one of Kobe’s runs. If the Kobe sliders don’t tickle your fancy, their menu has seven pages full of tantalizing food. My favorite, the Benjie Special, is a hot pastrami sandwich and coleslaw with Russian dressing on rye, served with potato salad. I can honestly say I could have it every day for the rest of my life and be happy. The atmosphere alone is enough to draw a fun crowd for the game. There’s six large screen TVs and an abundance of space to seat all of your friends. Dunk into a tall glass of ice cold draft beer, and score big with our corned beef, pastrami and Swiss cheese triple-decker sandwich as tall as Andrew Bynum. Or you can just order a few of our deli platters, like the cold cut buffet or the 16″ ring sandwich tray. With our deli platters, no one has to worry about ordering, they can just grab a sandwich while they watch their favorite team—the Lakers.
