Lakers, Celtics healthy for showdown

The banged-up Boston Celtics are hoping to be back to 100 percent as they get ready to host a Los Angeles Lakers team that will have Anthony Davis back in the lineup for the first time in five games.

The Celtics have lost six of their last eight, playing most recently Saturday night without guard Kemba Walker (sore knee) and swingman Jaylen Brown (thumb sprain), but both are expected to play Monday night. Marcus Smart stepped up with a franchise-record 11 3-pointers, but Boston still fell 123-119 to the Phoenix Suns - its third straight loss.

The setback was the Celtics' third in their last five games at home after beginning 14-2 at TD Garden. Boston hasn't lost four games in a row this season.
