Boston Celtics will renew their fierce rivalry with the Los Angeles Lakers in a National Basketball Association (NBA) match on January 29.
This will be the 298th meeting between the two teams in regular-season games since the Lakers made their debut in professional basketball in the 1948/49 season.
The Celtics have dominated this fixture having recorded 164 wins compared to the Lakers' 133 victories from 297 matches between arguably the two biggest basketball teams in the world.

The Celtics also claimed the bragging rights in the last meeting between two giants which was on 14 December 2022 at the Crypto.com Arena in Downtown Los Angeles, USA.
Jayson Tatum led the way with a game-high 44 points, along with nine rebounds and six assists for the Celtics who defeated the Lakers, 122-118 in overtime.
The Celtics are still placed at the top of the Eastern Conference standings having registered 35 victories and 14 defeats from 49 matches.
Meanwhile, the Lakers find themselves 12th on the Western Conference standings having recorded 22 wins and 25 defeats from 47 games.

LeBron James hit a career-high nine 3-pointers while scoring 46 points, but the Lakers lost 133-115 to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday morning, January 25.
“I was able to make a few shots tonight and try to help us stay in the game. But the Clippers, they are really good," James said.
"Exceptionally good when they’re shooting the 3-ball, and tonight they did that. I’ve got to this place by not even thinking about it. Just being in the moment, trying to play the game the right way. 
"Even tonight, as well as I shot the ball, I was still trying to distribute to my guys, to make sure they felt some type of rhythm. That’s just always how I’ve played the game.”
