One of the NBA’s most historic rivalries continues Tuesday when the Celtics visit the Lakers.
There have been many ups and downs for each team up to this point in the season with the Celtics (13-11) and Lakers (12-12) hovering around the .500 mark.
The Celtics, who are in the middle of a five-game road trip in the Western Conference, are fresh off scoring a season-high 145 points in a regulation victory over the Trail Blazers. In the victory, Jayson Tatum and Dennis Schröder each scored 31 points to lead the way for Boston.

Every member of the previous duo in Los Angeles is worth keeping an eye on, as Tatum has seen a recent increase in efficiency, while Schröder will be looking to make a statement against his former Lakers team and a former Thunder teammate Russell Westbrook.

Westbrook scored just 10 points (on 4 of 8 shooting) in the Lakers’ loss to the Clippers on Friday. Anthony Davis led the way with 27 points and LeBron James scored 23 points to go with 11 rebounds, the game-high, after missing a game due to a false positive COVID-19 test result.

James wasn’t exactly satisfied with his performance against the Clippers and will be looking to set the pace for the Lakers by getting a better rhythm with the Celtics in town. With several teams in the Western Conference keeping service in the middle of the group, a big rivalry win could be just what the Lakers need to build momentum and create some separation.
