    NO Anthony Davis, no problem?

    The Los Angeles Lakers found a way to prevail after the trade deadline expired without getting Davis in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans, hacking out a 129-128 win over the Boston Celtics on Friday, Manila time at the TD Garden.

    Rajon Rondo haunted his former team with the game-winning basket with two-tenths of a second left, while LeBron James posted a triple-double of 28 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists, along with three steals to lead the Lakers to the impressive road win.

    Rondo also finished with an all-around game of 17 points, 10 assists, and seven boards as the Lakers arrested a two-game skid to return to .500 at 28-27, while snapping the Celtics’ five-game winning streak.

    Rondo, who won an NBA title with the Celtics in 2008, took advantage of second-chance possession after Al Horford blocked Brandon Ingram’s layup attempt.

    Kyle Kuzma added 25 points, five rebounds, two assists, and one block, while Javale McGee and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope each chipped 17 markers for LA, which atoned for a 42-point loss at Indiana.
