June 1, 2010 |  3:00 pm

The Lakers practiced Tuesday in preparation for Game 1 of the NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics.

The Lakers watched film of the Celtics on Monday, but got back to work Tuesday, mostly working on their defense.

Kobe Bryant didn't practice because he was getting rest. Andrew Bynum didn't practice because he  his right knee was drained Monday. Bynum said he will practice Wednesday.

"Today was about defense, really," Derek Fisher said. "That's what it's going to take to win this series."

The Lakers finished practice with a five-on-five scrimmage.
