All eyes will be on the TD Garden Thursday night when the Boston Celtics host their most hated rival, the Los Angeles Lakers, in a match-up of the two teams currently standing in seventh place in their respective conferences.
The Celtics, winners of five straight, have a chance to climb within two and a half games of division-leading Philadelphia with a win, which would be just their second against a Western Conference foe this season.
Forward Paul Pierce surpassed Larry Bird for second-place on the Celtic' all-time scoring list during Boston's Tuesday night win against Charlotte, and can now set his sights on John Havlicek's franchise-leading mark.
Here is more broadcast information on the game.
Game Date/Time: Thursday, February 9, 8 p.m.
Location: TD Garden, Boston, MA.
TV Schedule: TNT
Radio Schedule: WEEI (93.7 FM/850 AM)
