New acquisitions Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks are expected to be available to play tomorrow night, should D'Antoni opt to use them.

I doubt the Celtics will want their revenge. I believe we'll play harder than them, especially being in our home.

 

Wonder if the crowd will be lively & loud throughout the game considering it's Boston, or since we both suck and are irrelevant, they won't take it as seriously.

Always sends a shiver down my spine when we play them.

Really? I mean it's a great promo don't get me wrong, but excited for tomorrow night? Bunch of scrubs mainly on both teams? No guys really having rivalry history with one another other than maybe Rondo & Pau, that is if Pau even plays. Hmmm... I don't know. Think the draft is clearly more important for both teams and probably especially Boston imo.

You also have Marshon Brooks going against the team that got rid of him twice before ever giving him a chance.

and Bazemore always plays with a chip on their shoulder.   That 'walking dead' Lakers team that was drained with no intensity whatsoever with Blake's departure is likely not to happen again because Bazemore's energy he brings to the bench.  

 

Bazemore + Young + Sacre on the bench....

I hope that Brooks has a good game though against the Celtics and that we can see what Bazemore brings defensively.  Both are getting 15-25 mins tonight according to D'antoni so we'll see what they can do. 

Due to lack of playing time for either in the past and a new system D'antoni expects rust but has given them the green light to go be themselves, make mistakes as long as they are trying to play the right way and play hard. 

Pretty much said the Lakers are looking at who is gonna play "winning" style basketball.  As in people that won't pack it in and will keep competing for 48 mins.  

That's who the Lakers want to bring back next year and that's what they'll be looking for the rest of this season.

It will be tough to lose this one given how bad Boston plays. But if anyone can achieve this it is the Lakers.

Kobe isn't passing Jordan this season

Nice
But

No one will talk about this year in lakers and celtics lore

Lakers won the first meeting
Let's see if the celtics pull it out
