Anthony Davis had the ball stolen in the last few seconds leading to the Celtics’ chance of winning, but overall he had a fantastic game His 27 points and 14 rebounds were both team highs as he took the lead and a smaller Celtics Team exploited

As always, it was Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown who paved the way for the Celtics The young duo scored 58 points out of 25 out of 37 from the field The big story for the Celtics is Marcus Smart’s health however, he went screaming Pain down in what looked like a possible Achilles injury team announced it was officially a calf strain, but Smart will have an MRI done in the near future to determine the extent of the damage

Our defense gave us a shot (or two) in the final seconds of a win we just couldn’t get the ball to find the bottom of the basket https: // tco / woYFq8A5U8

Lakers flipped it over, causing a mess, Celtics backing the ball and Kemba Walker missed a jumper in the final seconds, then missed a follow-up Lakers escape with the win What a game

tatum with the fast floater from time out to make it a one-point game! Lakers to 96-95 with just over 30 seconds left

Wow Tatum with the clutch fadeaway and then Lebron turns it around. All of a sudden his Celtics ball dropped 3 in the last minute

Dennis Schroder with a huge one and one that brings the Lakers to 7 in 90 seconds to play

LeBron got into this game and shot 417% which would be a career high with B2B 3 here in 4th place he’s 4 out of 10 in the evening

wow lol Lebron only kicked half a dozen times assessing her, then buried a three in his face

Marcus Smart of Boston is going to have an MRI on his left calf tomorrow, the source told ESPN

and now Anthony Davis is down. Jaylen Brown got him with a fake pump and kicked and poked AD with an elbow in the painful groin, but he should be fine

Back to the game, now everything is tied at 81-81, with eight minutes left to play
