Los Angeles Lakers vs. Boston
Surprisingly the Boston Celtics have played well recently in the absence of Rajon Rondo. The Celtics have won 5 games in a row heading into tonight's contest versus the Lakers. Injuries are a part of the game and Boston has made the necessary adjustments so far. The Lakers on the other hand have been decimated with injury losing both Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard. Kobe Bryant is getting fed up and team chemistry is in jeopardy. Whenever you have a 5 time champion still capable of playing at a high level losing will take its toll on their psyche. Don't expect Bryant to continue with his facilitator role either. The Black Mamba will be looking to take matters into his own hands. The game will be close and Kobe will score a ton of points, but the Lakers will come up a little bit short.
