Record vs. Celtics (2008-09): 2-0.
Update: The Lakers are 4-2 on this current eight-game, 13-day trip and want a win over one of the better teams in the East after starting with a loss to Cleveland on the road. The Celtics are looking old. They are 4-6 in their last 10 games. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett still are solid, but Lakers Coach Phil Jackson said that Boston point guard Rajon Rondo, who made his first All-Star team, makes the Celtics go with his speed and penetration.
