The Los Angeles Lakers have shocked their rivals on the road. With a slight 127-126 lead in the final seconds against Boston, Kyrie Irving successfully drove to the basket and notched the layup to give the Celtics a 128-127 lead. The Lakers would drive down the court, and after a failed layup attempt by Brandon Ingram, Rajon Rondo would grab the deflected rebound and hit a buzzer-beating shot from inside the arc to give the Lakers the win.
With all the talk surrounding the Los Angeles Lakers, from losing out on Anthony Davis to the speculated deteriorating relationship between LeBron James and his team, the Lakers came together to pull off the upset.
Brad Stevens: “I think the basketball Gods rewarded the right team. I hate to say that.” Stevens said the Celtics defense wasn’t good the whole game.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) February 8, 2019
The Lakers have silenced us all for now.
