The Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at STAPLES Center.

ABOUT THE CELTICS (39-22): Guard Avery Bradley, who returned from a lengthy absence due to an Achilles issue two games ago, made the most of his 22 minutes Wednesday with 11 points and several big defensive possessions against Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving. “It’s a good feeling. That’s what I play this game for, to go up against the best players,” Bradley told reporters. “I know I haven’t been out there in a while, but hopefully I can still be mentioned for first-team all-defense. It’s something I take pride in.” Thomas scored 38 points in a 113-107 win over the Lakers at home last month.

ABOUT THE LAKERS (19-42): Julius Randle was a bright spot in the loss to the Hornets with 23 points, 18 rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocked shots, and coach Luke Walton is urging the talented forward to bring that effort more often. “That’s the longest period of time he’s played that hard all season long,” Walton told the media. Randle, who missed the loss to Boston in February, has tied a career high with four straight double-digit rebounding efforts.

Oddsmakers currently have the Celtics listed as 7½-point favorites versus the Lakers, while the game’s total is sitting at 220½.

The Boston Celtics will try to build off perhaps their best win of the season when they begin a challenging five-game road trip at the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday. After losing three of four, and looking very sluggish in a 16-point home loss to Atlanta on Monday, the Celtics made a dramatic turnaround with a 103-99 win over Cleveland two nights later.

“We just played to win,” guard Isaiah Thomas – who scored 31 points – told reporters. “They’re the No. 1 team in the East. One of the best teams in the NBA, and we just wanted to protect home court and get a win. We did that tonight.” Boston enters Friday three games behind the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference and it hopes to stay close while navigating a trip that includes games against the Golden State Warriors, the Los Angeles Clippers and an improving Denver Nuggets squad. Fortunately for the Celtics, they get to start the voyage against the two worst teams in the West – the Lakers and the Phoenix Suns. Los Angeles has dropped five in a row and Tuesday’s 109-104 loss to Charlotte clinched its fourth consecutive losing season.

Los Angeles lost its last outing, a 109-104 result against the Hornets on February 28. The Lakers earned a push in that game as a +5-point underdog, while the 213 combined points took the game UNDER the total.

In their last action, Boston was a 103-99 winner at home against the Cavaliers. They covered the -1.5-point spread as favorites, while the combined score (202) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.
