Al Horford evaluated for concussion, won't play vs. Lakers

Al Horford evaluated for concussion, won't play vs. Lakers

Irving's post-LeBron prospects looked dim when Gordon Hayward went down with an injury, but Coach Brad Stevens has pressed all the right buttons.

Ball came into Wednesday night's matchup with the Celtics shooting 29.9 percent from the field, and missed 11 of his 15 shot attempts in the Lakers' 107-96 loss.

The most expensive, but most comprehensive coverage of every NBA game - and the only option for out-of-town fans who want to stream every game.

Lonzo Ball and the Lakers will continue their East Coast road trip with a match-up against the Washington Wizards on Thursday (Friday in Australia).

The team opened the campaign in dismal fashion, suffering back-to-back straight-up defeats including a 108-100 loss to the visiting Milwaukee Bucks as 1.5-point chalk in the team's home opener on October 18. According to the team, Horford's first symptoms linking him to a possible concussion occurred on Wednesday morning. With the defender already on Irving's back, there's nothing the defense can do with Horford also rolling to the rim.

Kyrie Irving showcased his dribbling skills against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night, navigating around all five defenders on one play.

Sure, he's averaging one-tenth of an assist less per game this year (5.7) than last year (5.8). He is playing smart on both ends, and is looking like the most efficient player on the team. But he remained relatively quiet until the fourth when he scored two buckets in a row to push a six-point game to a 10-point Celtic cushion.

The biggest surprise, however, has been Daniel Theis and Semi Ojeleye. He didn't return for the second half. He does a great job of running that team. Just got to stay positive and keep putting in work. Horford stayed on the ground but remained on the floor for a little while. Behind reserves, Jordan Clarkson and Julius Randle, the Lakers cut the lead to six before an Aron Baynes' basket and free throw at the end of the half took the Celtics' lead up to nine.

Ball struggled early, which caused the boos to intensify.

That gives a big edge to the much-improved rebounding Lakers. Al Horford is the third double-digit scorer and Jayson Tatum is grabbing six rebounds.

The Boston Celtics lost the first two games of the Kyrie Irving era.
