Game Notes
The Celtics return to action against the New Orleans Pelicans after playing one game in the last 9 days due to their trip to London.  This is the first of two games this season between the Celtics and Pelicans.  They will meet once more on March 18th in New Orleans.  The series between these two teams last season was tied 1-1 with each team winning on their home court. 

The Celtics have won their last 7 games and are 8-2 in their last 10 games.  The Pelicans have won their last 2 games and are 6-4 in their last 10 games.  The Celtics are 18-5 at home while the Pelicans are 11-11 on the road.  The Celtics are 12-2 against Western Conference teams while the Pelicans are 11-5 vs Eastern Conference teams.  The Celtics are 1st in the East while the Pelicans are 6th in the West.  The Pelicans have won 1 just one of their last 6 games against the Celtics, their home game last season. 

There are 4 former Celtics on the Pelicans.  Rajon Rondo has been playing well for the Pelicans.  It's amazing that the only player left on the Celtics who played with Rondo is Marcus Smart.  Tony Allen and Jameer Nelson are both out for this game.  Tony, along with Rondo, won a ring with the Celtics while Jameer Nelson just passed through.  E'Twaun Moore was drafted 55th by the Celtics in 2011 and is starting for the Pelicans. 

Jayson Tatum injured his knee in the game vs the Sixers and missed practice on Saturday.  He was able to practice on Monday and is probable for this game.  Al Horford also missed Saturday's practice to rest his knee and is also expected to play in this one.  Shane Larkin missed Saturday's practice with an illness and is day to day.   

The Pelicans are short handed with 5 players out.  Alexis Ajinca (knee), Jameer Nelson (personal), Solomon Hill (hamstring),  Frank Jackson (foot)  and Tony Allen (fibula) are all listed as out for this game. 

Key Matchups
(http://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/201143.png) vs (http://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/203076.png)
Al Horford vs Anthony Davis
Davis is dominant and is averaging 26.1 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.1 steals,  and 2.1 blocks per game.  He is coming off a game where he had 48 points and 17 rebounds.   He has scored at least 30 points in 6 of his last 8 games.  Al will need to play tough defense to slow him down. 

(http://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/203382.png) vs (http://ak-static.cms.nba.com/wp-content/uploads/headshots/nba/latest/260x190/202326.png)
Aron Baynes vs DeMarcus Cousins
Cousins is a physical center and so Brad Stevens will likely go with Baynes to start against him.  Cousins has been playing very well for the Pelicans with 25.8 points, 12.5 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.6 blocks per game. Aron Baynes is 2nd in the league with a defensive rating of 94.7 and he will need to play tough defense on a very good offensive player in this one.    Cousins major flaw is that he has the highest turnover percentage on drives at 13.3% and Baynes needs to exploit that. 

Honorable Mention

Jaylen Brown vs Jrue Holiday
Holiday is 3rd in scoring for the Pelicans with 18.1 points per game to go with 5.1 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 1.4 steals.  Brown should be able to win this matchup.  He is coming off a game where the Sixers bench was taunting him and he blew a kiss toward their bench as he hit a 3 on his way to a 21 point game.  Hopefully that chip remains firmly in place on his shoulder. 

Keys to the Game
Defense - Defense will always be the key to winning. The Pelicans average 111.0 points per game (4th) while the Celtics average 103.0 points per game (22).  The Celtics must play tough defense to slow down the Pelicans' scoring if they want to win this game.  The Celtics are first in the league with a defensive rating of 99.6.  They are the only team with a defensive rating under 100,  The Pelicans are 23rd with a defensive rating of 107.5. The Celtics defense will be very important in this game.  The Celtics have to especially defend the paint as the Pelicans are 2nd in the league with 50.4 points in the paint. 

Rebound - The Celtics have to crash the boards as a team. Rebounding takes effort and the Celtics have to show that effort on the boards.  When they put that extra effort out to dominate the boards, it often translates to all other areas of the game as well.  The Pelicans are a good rebounding team with both Davis and Cousins crashing the boards and so the Celtics will need to work hard to beat them to rebounds. 

Be Aggressive - The Celtics have got to be aggressive in going to the basket, playing defense, diving for loose balls and just playing harder.   They let the Sixers play harder than them in the first half on Thursday, but they came out more aggressive in the second half and were able to get the win because of it.  Their effort and aggressiveness can make them very tough to beat. 

Take Care of the Ball -  The Celtics need to move the ball to find the open man as when the ball slows down and players try to do too much, they struggle.   But as they move the ball, they have to be careful with their passes and avoid turning it over as the Pelicans are 10th in fast break points and will make the Celtics pay if they get careless. 

X-Factors

Depth - The Pelicans are short handed with 5 players out with injuries.  The Celtics will be close to full strength if Jayson Tatum and Al Horford can play as expected.  The Pelicans have a very strong starting lineup, but do they have the depth to stay close when they go to the bench? 

Rust vs Rest - The Celtics should be well rested in that they have had just one game in the last 9 days.  They have gotten some much needed practice time over those 9 days.  In their one win, they came from 22 down to beat the Sixers on Thursday of last week.  The Pelicans beat the Knicks on Sunday.  Will the Celtics be rusty from not playing or will they be energized from getting rest and practice time?

I was going to post "Will AD get a standing ovation tonight"? I'll leave it at that. Not sure it'll be loud like Gordon got but he will get an ovation unless he says something derogatory (doubtful) about the C's or fans prior to the game.

You know, for the longest time I wanted Cousins on the Celtics, but I'm not sure that I could stand watching him complain 24/7.

Also, what's with the player's only crew gushing over Davis and Cousins like Reggie gushing over Lebron??

I am a Cousins fan as a talent but that part of him is objectively bad.  I think a great system or coach could maybe fix it more (as well as maturing) but it's just a bad part of his game.  I think he often gets p---ed by how hard we play too (especially Smart).

This AM I found out that my broken arm has not healed the way they hoped it would.  I ate dinner alone tonight, and it's my birthday.  I don't have a girlfriend or a spouse.  Every time I sign onto my beloved Celticsblog, I fear that I'll find out I've been banned.  I don't enjoy the Celtics the way I used to.  And my mom is arguably my only friend.

Pelicans starting lineup gives most teams match-up problems.

But their bench sucks. Either play a gassed Boogie and AD in the 4th or rely on the bench.

Honestly, this is also why the Pelicans probably should work to re-sign Cousins and NOT trade Davis.

This team is currently Rondo, Davis, Holiday and Cousins. Add another shooter or two (or a saavy veteran) and the Pelicans can be a sleeper playoff team between the 4-6 seeds in the West IMHO (next year).

It must be difficult being Cousins knowing you've never committed a foul in your entire career.

Even if he was our 2nd best player dropping between 22-24 PPG, that would have been HUGE for us, especially come playoff time.

Frankly, if we had a healthy Hayward, I think we had a chance at beating CLE this year in the playoffs (barring a Cavaliers trade for Cousins, but still...)

Hopefully, this run will help Boogie shrink in the crunch time. Foul trouble will keep him from being overagressive.

The reliance on the 3 in mind boggling

That's today's NBA for ya—threes and layups, layups and threes.

AD does have a beautiful mid range game

AD IS A BEAST!

AD and Kyrie would be amazing in the pick and roll.

yep. can hardly wait to watch them play in march here.

This looks like so many Celtics wins.  Trail most f the gsme while keeping the score close, then take over in the last 5 minutes. We got this.

The thing to remember about falling behind to the Pelicans is that the Pelicans are not a very good basketball team. They will give you chances.  But we've got to take advantage.

Don't understand the rationale for the closing lineups down the stretch. I understand playing a more traditional two-big lineup, but when Rozier has been so bad tonight, why is he not playing down the stretch over Rozier?
Brad thought he subbed in good Rozier for bad Rozier, but in fact it was the other way round.

Yeah, that really helped us. Cousins shooting a turnaround deep three is much better for us than Holiday getting a good look off the dribble.

Crappy game - we didn't deserve it. Unbelievable how many ill-advised iso shots we took this game (looking at you Kyrie, Smart, Rozier, and [kinda] Morris).

The defense was also not all that. We came out sluggish and the players looked like they assumed they would come back to win it...they need to learn that they can't just fall behind every game.

I also wonder how many possessions we gave the Pelicans on lost jump balls. Not including the opening tip, I think we gave them four additional possessions - that is like four TOs.

Women should not get reffing jobs just because they are female. You should know how to do your job.

She was flat out awful

Oh well.  Beat Philly on Thursday and all will be right in the world again.

Also, Laurent Holtkamp should be kept as far away from a professional basketball court as possible at all times.  If only we were all as bad as she is at our respective jobs but got to keep said job, nothing productive would ever get done in this world.  One of the worst referees in the NBA and that's saying a lot.
Literally every game I've seen her officiate has been terrible..
Woah woah woah THIS IS SEXISM! 😂 can't agree with you better, poor CP3 for getting criticized but just saying the truth and tfw are gets to keep her job because she's a woman. The reverse gender discrimination is real guys.

Did we have a freaking timeout left??

We did.  I was yelling at my feed to call TO.

Yet another game Brad blows with this terrible technique. So, so, so, so dumb. For such a good coach, I don't understand how he can consistently make these bad decisions. That makes no sense whatsoever.

Sometimes it pays off if there's cross-matches in transition, but once Brad saw that Holiday picked up Irving he should have called TO.  Draw up a play.
But that doesn't matter when you need a three because no-one will be playing you to drive the ball. Call the bleeping TO and don't be too smart for your own good.

Yep. As good as Brad is at drawing up ATO plays, he should be calling it every single time this happens. It's baffling that he continues to make this mistake, especially given that it's almost always failed us. Just a bad, bad habit of Brad's that he needs to break.

Celtics have to shoot way better to beat a bigs club .

NO will go back to being NO after tonight. A .500 team with 2 good players and a roster full of scrap heap bums

He almost looked like he had turned the page early this game, then he couldn't help himself. Oh well, you can't win them all and this one was well-deserved. Perhaps next time we'll try to run some sort of pro-level offense.

I'm starting to think that being too cerebral about the game makes it difficult to him to react to it at the pace at which it unfolds. Unfortunately, in field conditions you have 5 seconds and not 5 hours to make up your mind. Oh well, take the good with the bad, I guess.

Smart and Rozier were not the problem. Thank You Kyrie for single-handedly dribbling away a 5 point lead. Two key possessions in regulation, Kyrie never even starts the offense, he just dribbles away the shot clock and jacks up a horrible shot. Then in overtime, he gets scored over twice on key Pelican possessions.

When will Stevens man up and start telling these guys what to do and what not to do ?

Bizarre to see Boston go down the floor without using a timeout only for Kyrie to trap himself in the corner and try to cross up an elite defender into a side step three.

My guess is either Brad liked New Orleans' defensive lineup, or he wants practice for a more important game where we don't have any timeouts.

Never said she was a bad referee because of her gender. I was taking shots at the "public outrage" CP3 took when he called her out as a bad referee a few years ago. Unfortunately she'll never get fired or called out by the public because she's a woman ::), not to insult any women here but it's pretty much true, if CP3 called out a male ref that dude would probably lose his job or get roasted on the internet lol.

The other 2 on the court were pretty terrible as well.. 25-16 edge on free throws and 14-24 on personal fouls for NO, which is ridiculous.. there were plenty of ticky tacky fouls on 1 end and on the other end they got away with murder.. it's really frustrating especially when we have a legit superstar on the roster who can't get any respect from the zebras.
