Iím psyched for this game. Wonít be easy but even without Kemba we match up well against them. Maybe Kanter can torch the Lakers like he did last time? Hope so.

The good thing about Kemba being is out is our current starting five can switch all they want against Lebron. AD is still a problem, but now it doesnt matter if our PG gets switched onto Lebron, he wont have an easy time.

The bad news... well, more wanamaker.

Wannamaker has been reliant so far, he rarely has bad games and does only what is asked of him...Id rather have him on the court than Langford at this point.

Of course you do. You've been calling Langford a bust as early as september.  ::)

Unfortunately for you, as we saw in the last game, Wanamaker tends to miss defensive assignments. He's a good on-ball defender, but struggles with team D. Last game is a good example. He got benched after making defensive mistakes and Langford got the call in the crucial minutes of the game and did well defensively.

Maybe Carsen or Tre minutes?

I'm happy with Gordy being our secondary PG though.

Don't think either will get minutes against LA, it will be Wanamaker and Gordon backing up Smart.

Oh my god, that Utah Jazz game this week at 10:30 PM. Love my C's, but I really don't think I'm staying up for that one, especially since it's literally the night after another 10 PM game against Portland.

Bill Russell wearing a Kobe Bryant jersey tonight. Classy gesture to honor the late player, but yuck that he had to wear that (rivalry-not-aside).

Kevin Garnett chatting it up with Rajon Rondo on pregame and will be wearing his #9 Celtics jersey lol. Where's Avery Bradley in all this he's a former Celtics too KG!

Let's go C's! Hope we get a good showing from the guys without Kemba.

I hate these ABC only games. Their announcing teams are atrocious, especially when they get terribly sycophantic towards LeBron and the Lakers. Uggg.

Let's prevent LeBron from scoring 30+ today as he's 17-0 when he does this season.
