Ever since that fateful NBA trade deadline back on February 7 when most of the starters for the Lakers were seemingly on the trading block yet all but stayed put, LA managed to steal a victory from the Celtics that night but it has gone downhill since then. Indeed, the wheels have fallen off with the Lakers losing 8 of their last 10 games and since the victory, their playoffs hopes have all but vanished. Meanwhile, the Celtics are slowly building momentum and enter this tilt as a 4-point road favorite, according to MyBookie Sportsbook, with the total set at 230 points.
