The Celtics (29-15) are in a rut unlike any they've seen since assembling the New Big Three in the summer of 2007. They have lost five of their last seven and 10 of their last 16 since beating Orlando on Christmas Day, including back-to-back losses to the Magic and Atlanta Hawks.

The Lakers(36-11) are on the 7th game of an 8 game road trip in which they are 4-2. They won in Philadelphia on Friday for their third straight victory. Noting their struggles against Orlando and Atlanta, Kobe Bryant predicted that the Celtics will have things turned around by the time their archrivals arrive. 

I'm looking forward to seeing how they answer that challenge," Bryant said. "Every time we go back to Boston, it's special, because that's where we lost the championship. All those memories come back."   

 Kevin Garnett, is "dragging his leg," as TNT's Reggie Miller put it, and has it wrapped from ankle to knee in a mummy effect. Ron Artest's feet are feeling better, and his concussion symptoms are gone...

It's been about 2 years to the date, since the Lakers acquired Pau Gasol via trade for his brother and Javaris Crittenton, Kwame Brown, and Aaron McKie. The Lakers have been to the FInals twice with Pau winning it all in 2009. The Lakers are 130-37 during the regular season with Pau in the starting lineup.

So who wins today? What do you guys think? Lakers or Celtics?
