Tip-off is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on ABC. Live streaming will be available within the Reddit basketball streams community.
The Lakers notched their fourth consecutive win as they defeated the Memphis Grizzlies in their first game post All-Star break. Though the vibes are positive in La La Land, LeBron James and Co. will be out to make a statement against Boston.
In the last meeting, the Celtics demolished the Purple and Gold at TD Garden by a final score 139-107, good for Los Angeles' worst loss of the campaign.
The Celtics, on the other hand, won their second straight and ninth of their last 10 when they bested the Minnesota Timberwolves on the road in their last contest.
Brad Stevens side will look to keep pace in the tightly-packed Eastern Conference standings. Entering Sunday, Boston sits 1.5 games behind the Raptors for the No. 2 seed. The C's will have to do so without star point guard Kemba Walker, who remains out of commission with a knee injury.
