The 8-8 Los Angeles Lakers head eastward to Boston to take on the 7-8 Boston Celtics at Boston’s TD Garden at 7:30 pm ET.
Of course, those 2008 teams were starkly different from the performances seen thus far in 2021. The Lakers have a .500 record through 16 games, while the Celtics are .467 through 15 games. Both the Lakers and Celtics have struggled in ways that would make the 2008 veterans shake their heads.
The greatest in NBA history may not be much mid-season, but Lakers-Celtics games are always fun to watch as fans gloat over wins and stew in losses. The Lakers and Celtics are tied for championships with 17 apiece, and they’re nearly tied at this point in the season.
Tonight also features an interesting tidbit: four of the top seven scorers in TD Garden history will be there, as will four of the building’s top scorers among visiting players.
