Los Angeles Lakers push past Boston Celtics

See also

Los Angeles Lakers played the Boston Celtics yesterday on the Jan. 17. It was a away game victory for the Lakers as it was able to beat the Celtics by 3 points (107 to 104). Although the teams are almost 3000 miles apart, they still have a very strong rivalry going on between them.

The Lakers scored the most points almost every quarter, but the teams stayed neck and neck. It was really anybody's game. It came down to the final minutes of the last quarter when things became interesting. Kendall Marshall made a three pointer in the last minute of the game that put the Lakers up by one. It ended up being the winning shot, because the Celtics lost the ball after the referees decide an out-of-bounds call should be determined by a jump ball. Ryan Kelly was then fouled and makes both free-throws, which kept the Lakers in the lead. It may have been luck, but there is no denying the Lakers won the game.

Rajon Rondo made his first appearance for the Celtics in almost a year. He tore his ACL during the Atlanta Hawks game on Janurary 25th, 2013. Rondo did play well, but it wasn't significant enough to help the Celtics beat the Lakers. Celtics' coach Brad Stevens even went on to say Rondo "has been studying the game [...] instead of just sitting there and doing what a lot of hurt guys do." This really gives Rondo and the Celtics and advantage.

The Lakers next game is on Sunday January 19, against the Toronto Raptors, which is another away game. Hopefully it will beat the Raptors just as it beat the Celtics but with a more comfortable score gap.
