For someone who neither played for the Celtics nor in a playoff series against them, Davis has generated plenty of animosity in Boston.
But nobody can accuse Davis of ducking the Celtics.
After missing the last five games due to a butt injury, Davis will return for the Lakers’ game in Boston today.
Mike Trudell of the Lakers:
Anthony Davis is available to play for tonight’s game in Boston.

Davis has jumped headfirst into playing playing for the Lakers and everything that comes with it. Playing in Boston – given Los Angeles’ rivalry with the Celtics, given his personal history with them – is entering the eye of the storm.
Should be fun.
