  • Boston Celtics vs New Orleans Pelicans

"We really had that mindset going that we wanted to start off the game and have a defensive presence", said Irving. "He's definitely a tone-setter".

"At winning time like that, I have the confidence in my teammates and confidence in my coaching staff to make the right plays and seek out the mismatches that we want", Irving added. In fact, Smart's 40-minute effort made him just the second Celtic to log at least 40 minutes in a single-game this season, joining Irving's 43-minute effort in an overtime win over the Suns. This season, the five-time All-Star is averaging 27 points with 12.8 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game.

"Marcus (Smart) brings, and (Aron) Baynes, they bring such a level of grit to our group and I think that I wanted to see what that would look like with Marcus Smart in the starting lineup", Stevens said. As one of the most highly anticipated teams heading into the 2018-19 season, throughout 21 games, the team has an 11-10 record which stands sixth in the Eastern Conference.

Again, they are coming off a win Monday night against the Pelicans. So he's here. He's playing on our team. According to Chris Sheridan, the Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly been working on a trade for New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis for years.

New Orleans is 8-1 at home and its only loss came earlier in the season when Davis was sidelined by a different injury. Irving will become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of this season and has expressed his intention to re-sign with the Celtics.

"You're nearly at that rock bottom point where the team is about to blow up", Kyrie Irving said, according to Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix.

"Get me off the ball", Jrue Holiday said half-jokingly at Tuesday's practice. "We've got to get back to who we are".

Irving closed out a 26-point, 10-assist performance with a 3-pointer and a tough baseline fade over Davis, and the Celtics pulled away late for a 124-107 victory over the Pelicans on Monday night. "That's the only thing that matters right now". "We're not playing with the same personality we played with previous year". He also had five steals and five rebounds. Still, there's plenty of time for the Celtics to get back on track.

Celtics guard Marcus Smart said "words can't even explain" the frustration he's feeling with the losses.
