On January 29, the Boston Celtics (35-11) host the New Orleans Pelicans (26-20) at TD Garden.
In what was a true statement of intent from the scorching-hot Clippers, Boston lost 115-96 in their last game. It is now up to the Celtics to recover well in order to avoid dropping 2 straight games, which would only happen twice this season. With a 35-11 record, Boston still has the best record in the league, so there’s no reason to panic. Their 20-2 record at home also ranks among the best in the NBA. Kristaps Porzingis missed the Clippers game, so the Celtics are still concerned about his health. The Latvian is still questionable which is unfortunate because he is averaging 19.5 points per game on 52% shooting. For almost 3 months, the Celtics were unbeaten at home. They have now suffered losses to the LA Clippers and the Denver Nuggets twice in a single week. When Boston plays the Pelicans, they’ll be attempting to get back to their winning ways.
The Pelicans arrive in town with a 26-20 record, good for 7th place in the tough Western Conference. After losing to the Thunder and the Bucks, two of the best teams in the NBA, back-to-back, they’ll be anxious to start winning again. In their most recent game, they were held to just 83 points against a formidable Thunder defense and lost 141-117 to the Bucks. This matchup won’t get any easier as they take on the Boston Celtics, who are coming off a loss and are the best team in the league. The Pelicans deserve credit for being better than their 26-20 record would indicate. With an adjusted net rating of +3.7, they are ranked ninth in the NBA, above teams like the Bucks, Suns, Pacers, and Kings. They have no names on the most recent injury report and are in perfect health going into this match.
