Celtics fans to look longingly at Pelicans' Davis in Boston visit

http://www.espn.com/nba/preview?gameId=400975396

BOSTON -- The local fans can be forgiven for doing a little dreaming when the New Orleans Pelicans visit the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night.

You might recall last season, when the TD Garden crowd openly "recruited" free agent-to-be Gordon Hayward during the Utah Jazz's visits, which angered then-Celtics forward Jae Crowder. But the fans wanted Hayward, and they got him.

On Tuesday, Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is on the parquet, trying to end Boston's seven-game winning streak.

The Big Eyebrow is NOT a free agent after the season. But that hasn't quieted rumors that the Pelicans would move him in a mega deal.

Boston fans have come up with all kinds of plans that would make the deal happen. And while they're allowed to dream, it's not likely.

Davis leads his Pelicans (22-20, 11-11 on the road) into TD Garden coming off a 48-point, 17-rebound effort in an overtime victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden -- their third win in the last four games.

"I thought we did a great job in the overtime," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "AD was just huge for us, and when you get into those zones like that, he's really good."

Davis had help. Jrue Holiday scored 31 points and DeMarcus Cousins added 15 points and 16 rebounds, overcoming a 4-of-16 night from the floor.

Asked what his team showed in the win, Davis said, "Resilience. Toughness. Mental toughness. We just wanted to come out and get this win. We felt like we owed these guys. They came in our home and beat us (on Dec. 30) in a game we felt like we should've won."

Davis and Cousins have played very well together -- Davis averaging 26.7 points, 10.5 rebounds and 2.08 blocks per game, and Cousins is at 25.5 points, 12.6 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.

In nine career games against the Celtics, Davis has averaged 24.7 points and 12.1 rebounds.

The Pelicans, who will play the second game of a three-game trip, have a lengthy absence list -- for injury or personal reasons -- including former Celtic Tony Allen (broken leg). But another ex-Celtics player, Rajon Rondo, comes to town averaging 7.4 points and 7.8 assists. He also registered a triple-double, giving him at least one for four different teams.

For the Celtics, this will only be the second game in 11 days -- the other was in London last Thursday. The break in games has allowed Boston (34-10) to get in some practice and healing time.

Rookie Jayson Tatum suffered a knee injury in the win over the Philadelphia 76ers in London and was considered day to day. But he was expected to play Tuesday.

"It feels a lot better," Tatum said Monday. "I just tweaked it in the game in London, and the long plane ride it got a little stiff. We had a few days off. ... So (the Celtics) just told me to rest the other day at practice."

On Saturday, coach Brad Stevens said, "We want to be cautious and know exactly what happened."

Jaylen Brown revealed that one of the rims in London was slightly off, something backed up by Philadelphia's JJ Redick.

Brown said he told his coaches about it before the game but apparently wasn't taken seriously. He added that it didn't matter because both teams had to shoot at that basket for half the game.

The Celtics have gone 5-1 against the Pelicans in the past three seasons, winning three in a row at TD Garden.

I hope the Celtics don’t play in London again. I’ve been jonesing for hoop and can’t wait for tonight.

I wonder though how Brad and the team feel overall about the London game, the condensed first half schedule, and what feels like a bye week?

Good evening all. I am so sad that JoJo White lost his battle today. He was such a terrific player and a fine gentleman. I met him years and years ago. He played in the greatest game I ever saw, the triple overtime game agains Phoenix. Up in the second balcony watching that game was probably one of the most exciting times I had as a Celtics fan. Of course.....there are many, but that was one great game. And they have not even said a word yet on the Celtics channel.
Gotta love those idiots

Getting tired of the Anthony Davis talk. He is not coming here unless Danny is ready to lose one or two of our future superstars. I am not ready for that.

That's too bad about Jo Jo.

Yay for a game finally, but my smile dropped when seeing that. That's outrageous to not mention it on t.v.. Show some respect.

This should be a good game. Rondo gave the C's fits in the playoffs.

Baynes doesn't want to go out to Cousins, and Boogie knows it...

Scal said he's not worried about Baynes covering Cousins. Then a couple plays later he's saying this is the problem for Baynes covering him.

They should demote Scal and let Pierce do the games. And where's Tommy? Maybe with Jo Jo's family.

Cousins usually implodes playing the Celtics! I saw him get thrown out last year when I went to a game. He just loses it. I do think he is better on this team.

When Morris brings the ball up the court, you almost know that no one else will touch the ball.
