Can the Celtics maintain the magic they found against the Lakers?


BOSTON — For 60 seconds on Monday night, it looked like the Boston Celtics‘ nightmarish start to 2020 would continue unabated against the Los Angeles Lakers.

The game opened with LeBron James‘ hitting JaVale McGee on an alley-oop from half court, followed by an ugly Jayson Tatum drive. Then came a poor Boston defensive rotation, leading to Gordon Hayward‘s fouling Danny Green on a made 3-pointer. After a Kemba Walker drive was swatted away, Anthony Davis caught a lob at the front of the rim and casually slammed the ball home.

The Celtics were down 8-0 in an instant, with some of their biggest weaknesses on display against their forever rivals.
