Irving, Celtics beat Pelicans

  • Boston Celtics vs New Orleans Pelicans

"You're nearly at that rock bottom point where the team is about to blow up", Irving told Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix after Saturday's loss.

Irving led Boston with 5/10 three-point shooting. "Last year, when they came in, when they played the Celtics, they knew they were in for a fight". Times like this, guys and teams tend to point the finger at one another and go their own way ... but this is a tight-knit group and we care for each and every one in that locker room.

"It's not anything that I'm going to have a say-so in or anything else, so we don't bother about it".

Al Horford scored 20 points, and Marcus Morris had 19 points and 11 rebounds for Boston, which punished the Pelicans for their 22 turnovers, converting them into 32 points.

"That's how we're used to playing", Smart said following the win. He has established himself as one of the best big men in the league that is a legitimate two-way player as he's coming off another All-Star Game selection and his first Defensive Player of the Year award. "When we're playing at that type of level, then we're tough to beat, because offensively it'll take care of itself". "We worry about winning games and putting everybody in the best situation to win games".

"We needed to be on the floor and try and correct those things", Gentry said.

Davis has two years left on his contract with the Pelicans - with a player option to leave the team after the 2019-20 season.

New Orleans trailed almost the entire game, falling behind early because of eight first-quarter turnovers that led to 11 Celtics points. However, Sheridan suggests the Celtics should look at trying to move the point guard this year. And Sheridan goes on to suggest a team such as the Sacramento Kings may need to be included in any deal for Davis from the Celtics, but he adds that no deal involving Irving is "currently being discussed". Davis is now under contract for two more seasons, with a player option for the 2020-21 season. But Ainge insists he is willing to stick with Boston's current roster to see if they can get out of their current sticky patch. But lingering questions about Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball make the Celtics - who boast a wealth of future draft picks and a crop of talented young players led by Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier - the clear front-runner. He also was assessed a technical foul in the second quarter after he tossed the ball away during a stoppage.

The Boston Celtics have the money to buy the shiny new sports auto.

Boston's road trip started off on a good note as the Celtics won at Atlanta 114-96 on Friday. The Pelicans had 13 fast-break points.
