Video: Best Lakers vs. Celtics Games Since 2008

Even though this season’s version of the rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics isn’t as star-packed as those in years past, it’s still one of the best rivalries in all of professional sports.

So, even though this year both teams appear to be on the downward slope of their dominant past, it’s always fun to look back at some of the historic moments between the two teams and reminisce about the great moments in the Lakers/Celtics rivalry.

To keep things simple we’re simply going to choose from games since 2008, when the majority of these current teams were put together.

Celtics @ Lakers: Dec. 25, 2008

After losing to the Celtics in the NBA Finals the previous season the Lakers were looking for a little revenge on Christmas Day. The Lakers got that revenge, and ultimately won the NBA title six months later.

Lakers @ Celtics: Jan. 31, 2010

Ultimately these two teams would meet in the NBA Finals again in 2010, but their regular season matchups were no joke either. In this particular meeting the Lakers won a nail-biter thanks to a game winning bucket from Kobe Bryant.
