First of a four game road trip and the first real test of where we are as a team.

Boston looks tough.
Their defense is so good that even Kyrie has positive defensive numbers.
Now that's saying something.

Exactly what I thought! Man, I hate that team. Really liked Kyrie and Hayward... But that Celtic hatred comes first!

They have the best record in the league without Hayward. Big test for our young team. Keep playing good defense and we have a chance.

You know what? I'm positive we can win this game.

Brook is better and bigger than Al Horford. And Marcus Morris is also 6'9 like Kuzma. We are great shape in the rebounding battle.

Ingram and Tatum in a Duke battle but Ingram has more expiernece on both ends of the court this time over his matchup.

KCP will need to do his job on the defensive end against Brown.

Lonzo has got a very difficult task in containing Kyrie. But Lonzo has had very good outings against caliber players like Wall, and Kyrie as great as he is, is still very prone to bad shooting nights nor is he as good of a defender as Wall.

Bench scoring is also gonna be a factor with needing good scoring from Clarkson and smart IQ from Randle.

After last night's game, I'm much more optimistic about this game than before. We had a good amount of rest going in this night, defense has been fantastic, and offense is slowly but surely clicking. Just gotta keep Kyrie from dropping 40 on us and guys like Brown and Horford from having a big game and we got this. As good as the Celtics are, they are far from perfect offensively as well.

Tough game, Boston has been playing really well. They have a
physical style game going, so expect lots of contact and bruises.

I've been invited to a few of their away games & it has always
been physical.

We'll see how our guy handle that style of play, very good
experience.

Honestly, if Lonzo puts up another horrendous shooting clunker against the Celtics I might punch a wall. The score is almost secondary (yes, I know that's irrational.)

Watching this Celtics - Hawks game, and this Celtics team is very beatable. Their offense is a bunch of isos and their defense looks slower than I thought.

I could agree with your Offense assesment but the Celtic Defense
is brutal from what I've seen; very very physical.

We'll see if the younger Lakers can take it and maintain an attack. It
should be interesting to watch.

Also; of interest for many here @ LG, a first glance of Tatum
playing a full game.

Go Lakers !
