Pelicans vs Celtics Preview
The Boston Celtics replied to Ime Udoka’s criticism by playing aggressively and energetically from beginning to end. The Celtics’ defense was crucial once again in their victory. Good things generally happen when their defense is on point like it was against the Knicks. The Green Machine held New York to 42 points in the first half and then outdid themselves in the second half, allowing just 33 points.
With an average of 105.2 points per game, New Orleans is 25th in the NBA in scoring. The Pelicans are shooting 43.4 percent overall, which ranks them 26th in the NBA, and 33.5 percent from outside the arc, which ranks them 25th. New Orleans’ leading scorer, Brandon Ingram, averages 22.5 points per game but only shoots 44.3 percent.
