Celtics-Lakers Preview

Red Sox and Yankees, Bears and Packers, Saints and bad luck in the playoffs. What do they all have in common? They are all great rivalries that we love to watch. Another rivalry writes another chapter tonight as the Los Angeles Lakers come into Boston to take on the Celtics.

Coming into the game tonight, here are a few things to watch out for along the way.

Anthony Davis and LeBron James

This duo is scary to just read on paper. Watching them in person might be even scarier. The Celtics are in a bit of a slump while the Lakers come in boasting a 34-8 record. LeBron James proved he needed some help around him last season. With the acquisition of Anthony Davis, it’s made the Lakers contenders again. These two are going to go off. The question is, will they be the only ones contributing? Can the Celtics shut down guys like Rajon Rondo, Kyle Kuzma, and others? Who will get a majority of the matchups with LeBron and A.D. all night? These are legitimate questions that need to be answered. Otherwise, these two will be putting on a clinic in Boston tonight.

Kemba and Jaylen Returning

After missing Saturday’s tilt with Phoenix, Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown are both expected to play tonight. This is a huge lift for the Celtics. This team is scary when everyone is healthy. But the problem is, they haven’t been healthy lately. They need everyone ready to go tonight if they want to be competitive with this Lakers team. Kemba’s leadership and Jaylen’s perimeter ability give the Celtics a few missing pieces they might have needed the last few games. Plus, they need to keep making their case for the All-Star game, right?

In Conclusion

This will be another great game to add to the rivalry. Celtics-Lakers is always must see television and this time won’t be any different. If the Celtics can pull off this win, it’ll be huge for the second half of their season. Plus, what’s a better way to get your second half going than with a win over LeBron and the Lakers?! Tell me something better, you can’t!
