"I didn't know about it or I would have taken the last shot", Thomas said.

Thanks to 17 fourth quarter points from Isaiah Thomas, and 38 for the game, Boston now stands alone as the winningest team in League history.

The Celtics have the second-best winning streak today, tied with the Washington Wizards, and both are behind the Miami Heat, who have won nine consecutive victories and had a break. In Boston's final possession of the second quarter, a roar rose up all around as he dribbled nonchalantly between his legs. Larry Nance Jr. had 18 and Nick Young 17 as Los Angeles (17-36) lost for the fifth time in six games. He opened February by scoring 19 of his 44 points in the fourth quarter of a win over Atlantic Division rival Toronto that helped earn Brad Stevens a trip to New Orleans to coach Thomas and the Eastern Conference All-Stars.

The game got off to a quick start with the Celtics jumping to a 7-0 lead.

While the Lakers continue to search for their footing in the Western Conference and find players who will lead them back to relevance, the Celtics rebuilt smartly around a collection of players like two-time All-Star Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder.

That said, the combination of poor Celtics shooting and generous looks by the Lakers played heavily in LA's early, albeit thin, lead.

"We've got to get better at putting whole games together", Walton said.

Then in the 80s, the Lakers core of Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, James Worthy, Byron Scott and A.C. Green was complemented by the Celtics in the East with their group which featured Larry Bird, Robert Parish, Kevin McHale and Danny Ainge. Rozier's buzzer-beating 3 drew the Celtics to 30-29 after one.

A smile stretched across Thomas' face when he found out what the Celtics legend had to say about him.

The return of Avery Bradley to the Boston Celtics is near, but it won't be tonight. Friday's loss meant that for the first time since the end of the 2000-01 season, the Lakers did not at least share the lead in all-time victories.

Boston and Los Angeles began the night with with 3,252 wins, tied for the most in National Basketball Association history.

"I think it's a unique enough rivalry that 100 years from now it will probably be tied again", he said.

"Nah, you can't put my name with Kobe", Thomas said.
