Kyrie Irving finished with 30 points, seven rebounds and five assists and Marcus Smart and Marcus Morris added 16 points apiece to lead the Celtics to a 120-107 win against the Lakers last Saturday.
The Celtics shot 51.6 percent (48-for-93) from the field and made 14 3-pointers while limiting the Lakers to just 5-for-27 (18.5 percent) from beyond the arc, including 1-for-5 by LeBron James. The Celtics are now 3-0 in their current California road trip and as of Sunday afternoon, they’re just 1.5 games behind the Pacers for third place in the Eastern Conference.
Lou Williams scored 40 points off the bench, 19 in the second quarter, to help the Clippers beat the Thunder 118-110 last Friday.

George finished with just 15 points and he scored just seven points on 3-for-10 from the field in 44 possessions when guarded by Beverley.
