Celtics star Irving to miss game against Pelicans with shoulder injury

Chicago forward Zach La Vine says the Bulls

New Orleans, the likes of Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris, Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier reprised their act from last spring, posting a convincing win over the Pelicans.

That was the closest the Pelicans would get as the Celtics led by as many as 22 points during the fourth quarter.

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart just recently tied his boss, Danny Ainge, now the team's president of basketball operations, on the Celtics' all-time three-point leaders list.

New Orleans was short-handed as well, but to a much lesser degree, playing without E'Twaun Moore (leg) and then losing Nikola Mirotic (ankle) in the second half to injury.

Boston continued its recent red-hot offensive pace with a 113-100 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, and now has racked up an average of 124 points per game in its six victories ahead of Wednesday night's Celtics vs. Wizards betting matchup at Capital One Arena.

"This is a family thing", Boylen said. "The main thing that we can tell you guys is that we went in there and we went in as a unit".

"We were very, very honest with one another; very direct", Carter said. "I think everybody has gotten their shot blocked at one time or another". Denver also got 17 points and 10 rebounds from Juancho Hernangomez, and Malik Beasley came off the bench to scored 19 points. "When you're shooting jumpers and Robert's in the vicinity, you feel him".

Shaquille Harrison scored a career-best 20 points, Zach LaVine added 11 and Cameron Payne had 10 for the Bulls, who have lost eight of their last nine.

To do that, New Orleans will have to get healthy.

Pelicans: The Pelicans haven't found any sort of stability this season. On Saturday, they suffered the worst loss in franchise history, a 56-point drubbing at the hands of the Boston Celtics.

Fox hit 8 of 11 shots in the second half to score 23 of his 25 points.

Said Williams: "Obviously it's a confidence booster, but I still have a lot stuff I have to work on". "It was a great assignment".

Point guard Kyrie Irving (right shoulder soreness), center Aron Baynes (left ankle sprain) and forward Guerschon Yabusele (right ankle sprain) have all been ruled out, while forwards Al Horford (left knee soreness) and Gordon Hayward (illness) are listed as doubtful. Horford is now averaging just over 12 points, six rebounds, and three assists on the season and remains the veteran leader in the Boston clubhouse. We're trying to worry about winning games.

Doug McDermott thwarted two Sacramento challenges in the fourth quarter with 3-pointers, and host in finished with the most energy between two teams playing the second night of back-to-backs to earn a victory.
