Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

‪2021-22 NBA Regular Season

Saturday 20 November 2021
TD Garden, Boston, Massachusetts
Tip-off at 01:30  
The Boston Celtic will take aim at the Los Angeles Lakers for an NBA Regular Season clash at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts on the morning of Saturday 20 November 2021. Tip-off is at 01:30.
It’s been an up-and-down campaign thus for the Celtics, who find themselves in mid-table on the Eastern Conference standings. However, they did claim a ‪122-113 win over the reigning champions, the Milwaukee Bucks, this past weekend. The Bucks were without star man Giannas Antetokounmpo, but it was still a great showing from Boston, who had Dennis Schroder score 38 points.
"There's always a natural letdown. That was the message before the game," Celtics coach Ime Udoka said after Boston beat Milwaukee ‪122-113 in overtime Friday night. "The other guys are going to play hard and come in with a ‘nothing to lose' attitude, and they did."

The Lakers have also struggled to find any consistency and sit in mid-table in the Western Conference. This past weekend they slumped to a season low with a shock 107-83 defeat at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
This prompted one of their star players, Anthony Davis, to exclaim “We sucked!” He added: “No defense. Can't score. That's not just this third quarter, it's every third quarter we've played this season. We come out slow, lackadaisical offensively and defensively. We got to get it together. Why? I can't tell you. But we got to do a better job.

“We got to decide who we want to be. A championship team? That's not us right now. We're not winning a championship the way we're playing. We got to be better, and we got to care more for our wins at home. Wins in general. That was embarrassing.”
In head-to-head stats, the Celtics and the Lakers have met in 294 Regular Season games since ‪1948-49, with Boston claiming 162 wins compared to 132 for Los Angeles. The teams’ last Regular Season meeting was in April 2021, with the Celtics winning ‪121-113 in LA thanks to 40 points from Jaylen Brown.
