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:

Los Angeles Lakers Boston Celtics
PG Jordan Clarkson Marcus Smart
SG Wayne Ellington Avery Bradley
SF Ryan Kelly Evan Turner
PF Tarik Black Brandon Bass
C Robert Sacre Tyler Zeller

Your drinking triggers for tonight include anyone mentioning:

  • Rivalry.
  • Jared Sullinger being out for the season.
  • The Celtics and their many trades this season.
  • The newly acquired Isaiah Thomas for the Celtics.
  • The draft lottery.
