The Boston Celtics rolled to an easy win and cover over the Los Angeles Lakers earlier in the month, and they'll try to do it again when the teams play at Staples Center on Wednesday.
Boston beat Los Angeles 116-95 as a 1.5-point home favorite on the NBA betting lines at the sportsbooks on February 7, improving the Celtics to 4-6 SU and 6-4 ATS over their last 10 games against the Lakers. The OVER/UNDER went 3-7 in those 10 contests.
Will the emotion of owner Jerry Buss's death Monday play havoc with the game and with handicappers?
The Lakers sport records of 25-29 and 21-33 ATS heading into this matchup, while the Celtics sit at 28-25 and 23-27-3 ATS on the season. The OVER/UNDER records are 27-26-1 for the Lakers and 25-27-1 for the Celtics. (Note: follow us on Twitter for line updates and injuries news).
