Paul Pierce was the highest scorer for Boston with 19 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and a steal. Kevin Garnett also had 13 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and a block.

Kobe Bryant was the points leader for the game with 33 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals for the Lakers. Pau Gasol also chipped in 21 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 blocks to the losing effort.
