Irving leads Celtics past Pelicans

Anthony Davis was drafted as the number one pick by the New Orleans Pelicans back in 2012.

With NBA teams upping the ante every season by taking more and more shots from beyond the three-point arc, it's critical to be able to defend that area of the floor, but New Orleans has often struggled in '18-19. Up next, they'll battle the Cavaliers on Friday night.

Anthony Davis had 27 points and 16 rebounds for New Orleans. "So, I got to play nearly flawless every night to give us a chance to win". Offensively they have plenty of room for improvement as they now sit 23rd in the National Basketball Association, averaging just 107.1 points per game.

Without Brown, who suffered a tailbone injury in Boston's 113-104 loss to Dallas on Saturday, Nov. 24, Boston is without one of their best forwards. The "Rose Rule" allows certain players coming off their rookie scale contracts to earn 30 percent of the salary cap as opposed to 25 percent. Last week, Brad Stevens said, "I just don't know if we're that good".

Davis scored five straight points on a short fade as he was fouled and a pair of free throws to cut it to 93-87 with almost nine minutes to play. "So with or without him, if we're not doing those things collectively as a team, it's going to be hard for us to win".

Soon after, Randle's free throws and Darius Miller's 3 ignited an 11-2 Pelicans run to close the period, trimming Boston's lead to 10 heading to the fourth.

"Get me off the ball", Jrue Holiday said half-jokingly at Tuesday's practice. That gives Stevens plenty of time to think about his starting five, which he says will be ever-evolving throughout the season.

For a team that had aspirations of competing for an NBA Title, the Celtics have started their 2018 campaign with a disappointing record of 11-10. "That's the team we know", Boston guard Marcus Smart said. To be eligible, the players must have achieved one of three accolades during the first four seasons of their career: MVP award, Defensive Player of the Year award, or two All-NBA selections. "You know, in my head, I don't pay attention to it, I keep going back to it but it's the truth, I look at what I have now and what I can do now and that's helping my team win". The Pelicans have made the playoffs just twice in Davis' career, with a year ago being the first time they advanced past the first round.
