It's game No. 48 for the 2017-18 Celtics (34-13), as they take on the Los Angeles Lakers (17-29) at the Staples Center as part of TNT's Tuesday double-header.
Boston is on a three-game skid, as they begin their West coast swing in L.A., the first of a back-to-back. The Lakers are winners of two straight and will be without their rookie Lonzo Ball (ankle).
This is the second and final meeting between these two teams after the C's won the first battle back in November at the TD Garden.
