Lakers Stop Celtics' Streak... Again


The Los Angeles Lakers beat the Boston Celtics for the second time this season, thus accomplishing two things: sweeping the regular season series against the Celtics, and stopping the Celts' streak to 12.

The Lakers need an extra period to win, as they were considered underdogs in the Celtics' home floor. Most people have always referred to the last time the Lakers were in Boston-- the time the Lakers were beaten to pulp and lost the NBA Finals.

This game was a different story as the Lakers kept the game close and played solid defense in the stretch to get the win. Kobe Bryant led the Lakers in scoring, but it was Lamar Odom who sealed the deal with his free throws in the dying seconds of the OT period. Pau Gasol contributed 24 points and 14 rebounds.

This win gives Lakers fans some reason for hope and optimism that the Lakers can win in Boston despite not having the injured Andrew Bynum on the floor .

Go Lakers!
