Talen Horton-Tucker was the most productive in the last game with 25 points. Russell Westbrook had a double-double with 19 points and 15 rebounds, Anthony Davis added 18 points.
Trevor Ariza, Austin Reeves, and Kendrick Nunn will definitely not play for the Lakers. LeBron James and Anthony Davis remain questionable.

Boston Celtics vs Los Angeles Lakers Tips:
The Boston Celtics will play at home, so they have a good chance of winning. The Lakers are still too unstable on the road. Vogel’s team has little hope of success. We suggest that the home team should be favored.
Our first prediction and bet are the Celtics’ win with the odds of 1.73 with the VBet bookmaker.
Both opponents can’t score many points. The Boston Celtics are scoring106 points at home on average. The LA Lakers are scoring 108 on the road on average. It’s unlikely they’ll be able to improve significantly. We have our doubts and believe the 217-point mark will be missed. One of the teams could fail the match.
Our second prediction and bet are the total match points under 217 with the odds of 1.68 with the Vbet bookmaker.
