Irving’s 26 points lead Boston past Pelicans, 124-107

Boston Celtics vs New Orleans Pelicans

Boston's rumoured interest in the five-time All-Star has been well documented and are better positioned than many other National Basketball Association teams to put together an attractive package for the New Orleans Pelicans.

The rumors of an Anthony Davis trade are continuing to build in momentum, although a deal will most likely not be completed until the end of the season.

Boston will enjoy three days off before hosting the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night.

Both Davis and Irving signed their contract extensions under the "Rose Rule", named after point guard Derrick Rose because he was the first player to sign such an extension. "Overall, we've got to play better than we're playing". The Celtics have an abundance of talent, but it is about chemistry and players working as a unit to be successful. "We have to tackle one at a time".

After losing 113-104 to the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday, Irving didn't hold back.

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. "No one's anxious about who's getting the ball, we're just focused on the defensive end".

New Orleans is 8-1 at home and its only loss came earlier in the season when Davis was sidelined by a different injury.

"Get me off the ball", Jrue Holiday said half-jokingly at Tuesday's practice. But as Mannix points out, "To get something, you have to give somthing". 'But I like a lot of things I see in our team this season, and I'm not going to be impatient. I don't even know what to say at this point. 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. While the Celtics built a 20-point lead and showed signs of regaining their status as an Eastern Conference contender, the Pelicans made numerous mistakes that led to last week's 0-3 road trip.

"That's how we're used to playing", Smart said following the win. The Celtics acquired Irving via trade in August 2017, so they can not deal for Davis - or any other player that has signed such an extension - until Irving leaves or agrees to a new deal.

While his free agency is over a year away, there is already buzz about whether Davis will stay with the New Orleans Pelicans, in part because the team isn't close to contending for a championship. "We have to get that swagger back".
