Los Angeles Lakers Form

Los Angeles head to Boston looking to get back on track after suffering back-to-back defeats.

The Lakers enjoyed a decent run in the second half of January when they won five of their seven games.

They beat Oklahoma City 112-105 and Dallas 127-110 at home, and then bounced back from a 130-112 defeat to Brooklyn with a 134-110 blowout of Portland.

Los Angeles failed to make it back-to-back wins as they lost 127-116 to the LA Clippers, but they did rebound quickly to beat Chicago 141-132 at home and Golden State 145-144 (2OT) on the road.

However, the Lakers have failed to keep that run going this week, following up a 135-119 defeat in Houston with a 138-122 loss in Atlanta.

Boston Celtics Form

Boston enter this matchup on a good run of form, having now won eight of their last 11 games.

The Celtics started this sequence with a 145-113 blowout of Houston at home, which was followed by a 105-96 victory in Toronto and a 117-98 win at home to San Antonio.

Their run was halted at three games by a 102-100 defeat to Denver, but their response was to then reel off three consecutive wins.

Boston went out on the road and beat Houston 116-107 and Dallas 119-110, before downing the Heat in Miami, 143-110.

The Celtics failed to make it four-in-a-row as they lost 115-96 to the LA Clippers, but they bounced back quickly to beat New Orleans 118-112 and Indiana 129-124.

Verdict

Boston are the better team in better form, and they have repeatedly beaten and covered against Los Angeles in recent teams.

We are riding with the Celtics despite the big spread for this one.
