     In Boston, last year’s Finals Game 7 is lamented as The One That Got Away. A 13-point fourth-quarter lead vanished in the blink of an eye as the Lakers dominated Boston on the boards, Paul Gasol went for 19 and 18, and it didn’t matter that Kobe Bryant shot 6 for 24 from the field. The Lakers had the game and the title, and the Celtics were denied championship No. 18.

    The Celtics got amends of sorts earlier this season with a dominating win in Los Angeles and can show the two-time defending champs tonight that they are serious about grabbing the trophy back come June. Problem is, the team the Celtics send out onto the court tonight is not the same one the Lakers will see in June if both teams make it to The Finals. Online Sports Betting at Sportsbook

     Boston has back Kendrick Perkins, who blew out a knee in Game 7 last season and whose absence down the stretch allowed the Lakers to do whatever they wanted in the paint that night. But Shaquille O’Neal is out, as are rotation reserves Marquis Daniels (spine injury) and Delonte West.(wrist). That means bench players like Nate Robinson and Semi Erden move down a seat closer to Doc Rivers.

      For Los Angeles, this is game 3 of a seven-game road swing, the Lakers having already taken care of New Orleans and Memphis. They’re saying all the usual things about this being just another game, and while it may be just the 53rd with 28 more to go after tonight, the TNT audience will know that this is hardly just another mid-February game.

Trends:

LAL are 1-10 ATS in their last 11 Thu. games.
Under is 26-10-1 in LAL last 37 Thu. games.
Under is 18-7-2 in LAL last 27 vs. NBA Atlantic.
Over is 9-2 in BOS last 11 home games.
Under is 21-8-1 in BOS last 30 vs. NBA Pacific.
Under is 33-16-1 in BOS last 50 Thu. games.
LAL are 2-6-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Boston.

     Best bets: Liking Boston -3 at home against Los Angeles as both teams are jolted awake from the grind and boredom of the interminable regular season.
