Tonight, the LA Lakers will take on the Boston Celtics in their second and final meeting of the season. The last time these two teams met, each team only had 5 wins on the young season. Much has changed since then, especially since the Celtics made a move at the trade deadline to try and pole-vault themselves into the Eastern Conference Playoffs. The Lakers will also be without Kobe Bryant, Julius Randle & Steve Nash, who have all been ruled out for the season. For a more in depth summary of tonight's match up, check out the game preview: Lakers vs Celtics Preview. Here are tonight's projected starters:
