Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the Boston Celtics in the final game of their 3 game road trip. The Lakers try to continue their recent dominance over the Celtics, as they have won 6 out of their last 7 meetings, including the last 3. Both teams will be without their prized first round rookies, as Marcus Smart continues to sit out for the Celtics and the Lakers lost Julius Randle for the year in the season opener. The Lakers will also be without Ryan Kelly (torn hamstring), while Xavier Henry & Steve Nash have also been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers & Celtics Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:


Los Angeles Lakers Boston Celtics
PG Jeremy Lin
Rajon Rondo
SG Kobe Bryant Avery Bradley
SF Wesley Johnson Jeff Green
PF Carlos Boozer Jared Sullinger
C Jordan Hill
Tyler Zeller
