The Celtics failed to complete a sweep of their back-to-back road games and fell back down to .500 at 10–10 after a 113–104 loss to Dallas on Saturday night.
The Mavs led just about the entire way; Boston took a single one-point lead before Dallas regained control and maintained a double-digit lead for most of the fourth quarter.
Gordon Hayward got the night off, the second of the back-to-back, but it doesn’t even feel like that’s anything that even matters anymore. Kyrie Irving scored nineteen inefficiently and Jayson Tatum led the scoring with twenty-one. Al Horford returned from a brief absence due to knee soreness.
The Celtics’ schedule gets soft after this one in New Orleans but I’m afraid they aren’t in any sort of position to take advantage of it. Through twenty games, there hasn’t been much good but panic still shouldn’t be high. That will change if the C’s are still playing .500 ball after thirty games.
New Orleans Pelicans
New Orleans dropped down to 10–10, just like Boston, with a ten-point loss on Saturday night in Washington. Otto Porter Jr. scored twenty-nine and the Pels missed Anthony Davis, who was out with a hip strain.
Julius Randle scored twenty-nine and got fifteen rebounds in Davis’ place but Cheick Diallo had to play bigger minutes off the bench that would have been Randle’s and the Pelicans weren’t able to exploit a weak Washington interior like they should have.
The Pelicans have five or six really top-notch players but they do struggle with depth. This should be a fun game between two teams with quite a few elite shooters.
Then there’s also the rumor that Anthony Davis could be on his way to Boston. It seems to be either Boston or LA, though it’s hard for me to imagine that the Pelicans deal him in the middle of this season. Hopefully he comes back to play this game and has a big one.

Free Boston Celtics vs. New Orleans Pelicans NBA Prediction: Davis returns, Pels win.
This is a tough game for Boston to swing things now. As long as Davis plays, I like the Pels.
