The Lakers donned the throwbacks Sunday night and also took it back to the old days of being dominated by Boston as they lost 109-96 to the Celtics. The C's where just too much for L.A. in their revenge game. This was the first time these two storied, related franchises have played at STAPLES, since the hard-fought Game 7 that the Lakers won along with the NBA Championship. Kobe passed the 27,000 point milestone with a season-high matching 41, but this Glen Rice number couldn't shoot down Boston's lead. Pierce had 32 for the Celtics, while Ray Allen kept up pace with 21. Garnett also added 18 while Rajon Rondo set the table with 16 dishes. With all this firepower the Lakers just couldn't clear the table. Now these big losses are becoming food for thought for the defending champs. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
