LOS ANGELES -- The Celtics will face Lakers team without Kobe Bryant tonight but that doesn't mean the Lakers will lay down or be that much easier to defeat.

Los Angeles has received increased production from Shannon Brown and Andrew Bynum as well as the usual scoring from Ron Artest and Pau Gasol.

The Celtics are going to be shorthanded because they are without Eddie House and Bill Walker while Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry aren't yet with the team following the trade. So the Celtics have 11 dressed players tonight.

BOSTON

PG Rajon Rondo
SG Ray Allen
SF Paul Pierce
PF Kevin Garnett

LOS ANGELES
