Tatum, who scored 20, threw down a right-handed dunk while being fouled by Davis with 2:26 left, at which point Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry began subbing out starters and fans started filing out, resigned to just New Orleans' second loss in 10 home games this season.

With NBA teams upping the ante every season by taking more and more shots from beyond the three-point arc, it's critical to be able to defend that area of the floor, but New Orleans has often struggled in '18-19.

Boston's road trip started off on a good note as the Celtics won at Atlanta 114-96 on Friday. But Irving has a point. "We're not playing with the same personality we played with a year ago".

Without Brown, who suffered a tailbone injury in Boston's 113-104 loss to Dallas on Saturday, Nov. 24, Boston is without one of their best forwards. With Smart's spirited enthusiasm on the defensive end (picture a small dog running after a truck), the Pelicans turned the ball over eight times in the first quarter, leading to 11 Celtics points.

"I feel like the season is kind of like a rollercoaster", guard Jrue Holiday said. The Celtics have an abundance of talent, but it is about chemistry and players working as a unit to be successful.

For a team that had aspirations of competing for an NBA Title, the Celtics have started their 2018 campaign with a disappointing record of 11-10. 'The Celtics, at some point, if you want to get a Kawhi Leonard or in this auto Anthony Davis you can't just protect your five-man core.

"It feels like deja vu all over again", Smart told the team's official website. "That's the team we know", Boston guard Marcus Smart said.

Davis Cup redemption for Croatia as classy Cilic secures title
Coric had won his other singles rubber against Jeremy Chardy , while Cilic had put Croatia 2-0 up by beating Tsonga. Chardy had won five of his six Davis Cup singles matches but Friday's was the biggest he had ever been involved in.

"I don't even know what to say to you guys at this point", Smart said.

Davis is now heading into the third year of his five-year, $127.1 million deal that contains no player or team options that run through the 20-21 campaign.
