TNT | 10:00 pm

A historic rivalry gets another chapter tonight at Staples Center, where Anthony Davis and the Los Angeles Lakers will defend home hardwood from Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics. With LeBron James kept on the shelf by an abdominal strain, the Lakers have hung around the .500 mark but hope for better times upon the King's return. Similarly, the Celts have broken even in the early going but their team defense has remained solid.
