the lakers and celtics met in the NBA finals eleven times.
The Lakers went to the NBA Finals seven times in the 1980's.
5 times with Minneapolis Lakers and 9 times with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Boston Celtics in the NBA finals 8 times.
the lakers have been there 30 times and the celtics have been there 38 times
I'm pretty sure it twice. The lakers are 2-8 verse the celtics in the finals.
