Pau Gasol blocked Ray Allen's desperation shot in overtime to preserve the Laker's 110-109 win in Boston Garden.
This is the second time this season the Lakers have stopped a Boston win streak. This time Boston won 12 in a row before falling to the Lakers.
Last time, Boston set a franchise record of 19 straight wins, when the Lakers ruined their Christmas Day by leading all the way.
As a fan since 1962, these are heady days with the Lakers boasting the best record in the NBA.
