The Celtics have won all their matches since Rajon Rondo was ruled out for the season due to injury, running away against the Lakers with a strong third quarter showing.

Kobe Bryant's 27 points proved mere consolation for Los Angeles, who suffered their heaviest defeat of their campaign.

The Dallas Nuggets are also in fine recent form and a 128-96 victory over the Chicago Bulls was their eighth in succession.

Wilson Chandler poured in 24 points, with Kenneth Faried adding 21 points and 12 rebounds.
