Porzingis, Celtics start strong in 126-115 Christmas Day triumph over Davis, Lakers.

L.A. (Associated Press) — On Monday, the Boston Celtics upset the Los Angeles Lakers for the first time in game that took place on Christmas Day. Kristaps Porzingis scored 28 points  

and grabbed 11 rebounds, while Jayson Tatum contributed 25 points to the victory. The final score was 126-115. 

There were 19 points scored by Jaylen Brown, and Derrick White contributed 18 points and 11 rebounds to the team's total. Every single one of the five starters for the Celtics scored  

at least 18 points, and they have won three games in a row and 12 of their last 14 games. 

Despite the fact that LeBron James had 16 points, nine rebounds, and eight assists, and Anthony Davis had a game-high 40 points and 13 rebounds, 

the Los Angeles Lakers have lost six of their last eight games since winning the first-ever In-Season Tournament

Immediately following the dunk that Jarred Vanderbilt made early in the third quarter, Boston went on a run of seven consecutive points to reclaim the lead. This was 

the only time that Boston had ever been down in the game. Porzingis scored 13 points, which contributed to the Celtics gaining a nine-point lead entering into the fourth quarter of the game.
