Los Angeles Lakers:

The Los Angeles Lakers are sixth in the Western Conference standings with 12 wins and 12 losses each.

After defeating the Detroit Pistons (110-106) and Sacramento Kings (117-92) last week, Frank Vogel’s men lost to the Clippers (115-119).

Anthony Davis scored 27 points and 10 rebounds in the derby. LeBron James added 23 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists. Malik Monk added another 20 points off the bench.

Kendrick Nunn and Trevor Ariza will definitely not play for the Lakers. The status of Lebron James, Anthony Davis, and Carmelo Anthony remain uncertain.

Boston Celtics:

The Boston Celtics are sixth in the Eastern Conference standings with 13 wins and 11 losses.

In their last four games, the Celtics lost only to the Utah Jazz (130-137), while beating the Toronto Raptors (109-97), Philadelphia 76ers (88-87), and Portland Trail Blazers (145-117).

Jason Tatum and Dennis Schroeder scored 31 points each against the Trail Blazers. Peyton Pritchard had 19 points and Marcus Smart had 17.

Only Jaylen Brown is among the Celtics injured, but he still has a chance to come back to the floor.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics Statistics: 

  • 15.2 and 13.2 – that’s how many losses the teams are averaging per game in the current regular season.
  • In the current NBA campaign, the Boston Celtics are averaging 46.5 rebounds per game.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Boston Celtics Tips:

In the first game between these teams, four Celtics players scored at least 20 points at once. The home team dominated on the rebounding and made a lot of free throws.

Would we expect the Boston Celtics to play like that in Los Angeles? Not likely. Slowly but surely the Lakers are picking up their pace, and the return of LeBron James has given the team a boost.

Yes, the Californians still don’t look like a winning team, but they still look a lot better than the Boston Celtics. 

Our first prediction and bet are the Lakers’ win with the odds of 1.69 with the VBet bookmaker.

We expect the game to be a real spectacle. The Lakers can attack well, and the Celtics are unlikely to give up the initiative, so they’ll also respond sharply, so we expect the total to be broken.

Our second prediction and bet are total match points over 215.5 with the odds of 1.90 with the Vbet bookmaker.
