Anthony Davis Trade Rumors: Lakers May Be Preferred Over Celtics

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.

For the Celtics, who have frequently lost the battle of the opening 12 minutes, this victory was really found in the first quarter when they scored 26 of the game's first 37 points in all.

Kyrie Irving, who led the way for Boston with 26 points, said having Smart alongside him in the starting backcourt made a big difference on many different levels. "We have to tackle one at a time".

"We don't impose our fear and will on other teams", [Marcus] Smart said.

Davis is now heading into the third year of his five-year, $127.1 million deal that contains no player or team options that run through the 20-21 campaign.

In an interview with Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, Stevens spoke on how there is no individual player holding the team back, but it is that the entire team is no clicking.

Real Plus-Minus is an estimate of a player's impact at each end of the floor, expressed as a point differential per 100 possessions, based on both box score statistics and on-off splits.

"I think we all just started focusing on what we did two or three years ago, not anxious about who's getting the shots, just trying to lock in on the defensive end and move the ball". "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", he added. With LeBron James also represented by them, many connected the dots for a potential Lakers move and Sheridan brought that point up as well. With Smart's spirited enthusiasm on the defensive end (picture a small dog running after a truck), the Pelicans turned the ball over eight times in the first quarter, leading to 11 Celtics points. The Pelicans are now 10-11 and 12th in the Western Conference standings. "Put Anthony (Davis) at the point guard". 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.

Boston's road trip started off on a good note as the Celtics won at Atlanta 114-96 on Friday. He had four rebounds, two points and an assist. The Pelicans had 13 fast-break points. New Orleans was 27 of 29 on three throws, but went 12 of 32 from 3.
