As for the Celtics, their struggles continued as they come off another double digit loss, this time at the hands of the Toronto Raptors.

New Orleans

5-5 over their last 10 games, the Pelicans look to string together a couple wins and stay above the .500 mark as they head to Boston to take on the Celtics. New Orleans comes off a victory that put an end to a 2 game losing skid.

A day after getting removed from the starting line up, Tyreke Evans scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the win over Memphis. Evans will look to build off his best performance of the season on Monday.

With Evans hitting the bench, Eric Gordon and Jrue Holiday started in the back court together and responded in a big way. The pair dropped 6 3 pointers and 11 assists on Monday. Combined, the two scored 36 points. They’ll get the nod to start in the back court together again on Monday.

Sitting with an 18-18 record, New Orleans sits just 2 games out of the 8th spot in the Western Conference. They’ll need to improve on their 6-13 road record if they want any hope of stabilizing a position in the top 8.

Razor Ray's Picks

Anthony Davis will look to continue his string of scoring 20+ points. Davis has scored 20+ in 3 straight contests.


If the Celtics weren’t in rebuilding mode when they shipped Rajon Rondo off to Dallas, they certainly have solidified their spot in the rebuilding phase with the dealing of Brandan Wright to Phoenix. They’ll look for their young guns to now carry them throughout the season and attempt to catch fire and get back into the playoff race.

Currently, Boston sits 3 games off the pace for the 8th seed in the East. The absence of PG Jameer Nelson has been a major piece missing for Boston. Nelson has missed 5 straight games with an ankle injury. In those 5 games, Boston is just 1-4.

It was the same story for them against the Raptors on Saturday, as they allowed another opponent to score over 100 points. Allowing 103.9 points a game (26th), the Celtics need to figure things out on the defensive end if they have any hope of improving.

The last time Boston held an opponent under 100 points in a win was back on Dec 31 against the Sacramento Kings.

NBA Basketball Trends:

  • Pelicans are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. NBA Atlantic.
  • Pelicans are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Monday games.
  • Celtics are 8-17 ATS in their last 25 vs. Western Conference.
  • Celtics are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Southwest.

Laying points with Boston just isn’t safe these days. On the flip side of things, betting on New Orleans on the road is not safe either.

New Orleans 108, Boston 103

Both teams have the weapons offensively to make this into a shootout type game.
