Celtics Torch Lakers in Boston, 116-95

The Los Angeles Lakers received good news just prior to the start of their game versus the Boston Celtics, that Dwight Howard would be in the line up for the first time since missing the last 3 games. That was the last bit of good news for the Lakers on Thursday night. In front of a nationally televised audience, the Celtics absolutely torched the basketball nets at the TD Garden last night and what was left in the aftermath was a 116-95 drubbing of the Lakers.

The Celtics shot 52.9% from the field and 45.5% from 3s; luckily for the Lakers the Celtics only took 11 shots from distance. The Boston Celtics took control of the game in the 2nd quarter where they extended their 4 point lead at the end of the 1st to a 14 point lead to end the 1st half. The Celtics dominated the rest of the way, extending their lead to as many as 32 points.
