Despite being heavy favorites, the Celtics were surprised by the Lakers’ resilience, with Austin Reaves scoring 32 points and leading the team to victory.

ESPN’s Chiney Ogwumike criticized the Celtics, suggesting that at times, they appear to be “too cool for school.” Despite their overall strong performance this season, including successful moves like acquiring Jrue Holiday and Kristaps Porzingis, the analyst emphasized the importance of the team maintaining focus and intensity, especially as they head into the postseason. The loss at home to a shorthanded Lakers team serves as a reminder that slipping up in crucial moments could jeopardize their playoff success.
