The road trip gets brutal when the Celtics travel to LA to play the Lakers the following night. The Lakers are a surprising second in the Pacific Division. Kobe Bryant is the league's best player, and with Lamar Odom and the emerging Andrew Bynum, the Lakers can give anyone a game. The Celtics beat Kobe's crew in Boston earlier this season, but they should be a much tougher task at the end of a difficult road trip.
