The last time we saw these two titans battle, it was Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
The Lakers were able to knock off the Celtics to win their second straight NBA title after a furious fourth-quarter comeback.
Today, the two meet up again for the first time during the 2010-11 season.
The Celtics have the second-best record in the NBA and have one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. The Lakers have been one of the better offensive teams in the NBA; however, they have been showing their age at times during this season.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see Los Angeles really step up at home against their bitter rivals, but really, in the big scheme of things, this game doesn’t mean much. After all, you can’t win a championship in January.
Stay tuned here for all the latest pregame news and note as well as my take on Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett and the rest of these two juggernauts.
Also, be sure to let us know what you think.
Is Kobe showing his age?
Is KG the key to the Celtics, or has that moved to Rondo?
Are these two on a collision course to meet in the finals again this year?
