The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics rekindle one of the NBA’s most iconic rivalries tonight, but with a completely different feel.

These two teams, who have so often reigned supreme in the NBA, are fighting for their postseason lives.

Tonight, these teams meet in Beantown in a nationally-televised tilt as they both continue to try and get their acts together. Both have been trying to overcome big injuries. The Celtics lost Rajon Rondo a few weeks ago for the season and now the Lakers are looking at life without Pau Gasol.
