MarShon Brooks, who played 10 games this season for the Celtics  before being dealt to Golden State, poured in 10 fourth-quarter points for a Lakers team that had acquired him from the Warriors earlier in the week. Brooks led a fourth-quarter surge by Los Angeles in which the Lakers outscored their visitors by 20 points (38-18) en route to a 101-92 victory at the Staples Center .
Brooks shot 7-for-11 from the field, joining a balanced offensive attack that featured six Lakers (including Pau Gasol , who scored 16 in his first game since Jan. 31) in double digits. Though the Celtics  entered the fourth quarter with an 11-point lead, the Lakers blitzed them with a 13-2 run in the first 3:03 of the final quarter, with the two sides trading buckets and leads before Jordan Farmar‘s 16-footer put Los Angeles up for good at the 8:10 mark.
The Celtics  were paced by Jeff Green ‘s 21 points, but the forward battled foul trouble for much of the night. Jared Sullinger recorded a double-double (12 points, 12 rebounds) but shot 6-of-16 from the field, while Rajon Rondo  misfired on 10 of his 12 shots (though he managed to contribute 11 assists and six boards).
