Lakers vs. Celtics: Stream, lineups, injury reports and broadcast info for Thursday

The Los Angeles Lakers visit the Boston Celtics on Thursday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Lakers are 1-2 on their current six-game “Grammy” road trip, and it took a turn for the worse when they got blown out by the Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks on Monday and Tuesday, respectively. With a 24-25 record, they’re clinging to ninth place in the Western Conference and are just one game ahead of the 11th-place Houston Rockets.

Just about everyone agrees that overall, Boston is the best team in the NBA right now. It has a league-best 37-11 record, and it is second in offensive rating and third in defensive rating this season.

The Celtics defeated the Lakers at Crypto.com Arena on Christmas Day without too much difficulty, 126-115. Anthony Davis, who sat out Tuesday’s contest in Atlanta, scored 40 points on 15-of-26 shooting, but it wasn’t enough, as the Celtics held LeBron James to 5-of-14 shooting.
