Jordan Clarkson Leads Lakers Past Celtics In Kobe Bryant’s Final Boston Outing

Jordan Clarkson and Louis Williams combined for 43 points as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated Boston Celtics 112-104 at the TD Garden Wednesday night.

Jordan Clarkson, 24 points (10/15 FG), and Louis Williams, 19 points (7/9 FG), combined for 43 points as the Los Angeles Lakers defeated Boston Celtics 112-104 at the TD Garden Wednesday night. It was a special victory for the Purple & Gold, since the occasion marked Kobe Bryant’s last-ever outing in Boston.

Bryant (15 points, 5/18 FG) had another woeful shooting night but was extremely active on the boards (11 rebounds) and played some tenacious defense for a 37-year-old. Lakers’ other two future stars – Julius Randle (15 points, 12 rebounds) and D’Angelo Russell (16 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists) – also had fine outings as Lakers posted an all-round effort for their sixth win of the season. |Final Box Score|

The story of the match was Lakers’ incredible shooting percentage. They shot an unprecedented 47.4% from deep and 45 percent overall. On the other hand, Celtics shot only 25 percent from deep.

For Boston, Isiah Thomas lead the way with 24 points and 7 assists. Evan Turner had 20 points and 8 assists off the bench. Jae Crowder added another 17 points and 5 rebounds.

With the defeat, Celtics (18-14) fell out of the playoff picture in the competitive Eastern Conference.
