Article Summary:

The Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers – a rivalry like no other.

The Celtics took control of the game early on, taking a 31-23 lead after the first quarter and that lead remained steady in the double-digits throughout most of the game until the Lakers cut the lead to just 7 points late in the fourth against the Celtic reserves, forcing Brad Stevens to put the starters back into the game to seal the deal.

Rookie Payton Pritchard was effective off the bench as the Celtics await Evan Fournier’s return, finishing with 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists.

The Celtics will look to extend their winning streak to six games on Saturday against the Golden State Warriors on ABC.
