NBA -- Celtics hold off Lakers, 107-96, notch 10th straight victory

BOSTON – Don’t look now, but after stumbling to an 0-2 start, the Boston Celtics have won 10 straight.
Aron Baynes had 23 points and eight boards while Kyrie Irving added 19 despite going just 7-of-21 from the field to lead the Celtics to a 107-96 win over the visiting Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night at the TD Garden.
Baynes filled in nicely for Al Horford, who was out the contest after entering the concussion protocol. The Celts would lose another body during the game when Jayson Tatum sustained a sore right ankle and did not see action in the second half. Tatum will undergo an MRI on Thursday, Boston head coach Brad Stevens told reporters at the post-game press conference.
Highly-regarded rookie Lonzo Ball had a rude awakening as the sold-out crowd of 18,624 booed the Lakers point guard voraciously throughout the action-packed encounter. Ball was held to 9 points after missing 11 of 15 shots.
Brandon Ingram led Los Angeles with 18 points while Jordan Clarkson chipped in 18 markers off the bench.
With a 10-2 slate the Celtics now have the best overall record in the NBA. The Lakers dropped to 5-6 and fell to No.11 overall in the Western Conference.
