Anthony Davis adds to star power as Lakers visit Celtics

Two of the NBA's marquee players will face each other Saturday night when Jayson Tatum and the slumping Boston Celtics play LeBron James and the visiting Los Angeles Lakers.

Saturday night's game will be the second meeting between the teams this season.

Anthony Davis led the Lakers with 37 points and 12 rebounds. James finished with 33 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.
