Celtics-Lakers games just hit differently, even if both teams are not playing at a particularly high level at the moment.
“That game is special. Obviously, everyone knows the history between the two franchises, and I’ve been fortunate enough to be a part of that going on five years now,” Celtics forward Jayson Tatum said Wednesday night.
The Lakers are hoping to get James back in action after he’s missed 10 of the team’s last 16 games with an abdominal strain. The Lakers are 4-6 in their last 10 games, and fell to the Milwaukee Bucks, 109-102, on Wednesday.
