Celtics overpower Anthony Davis, Pelicans

Celtics overpower Anthony Davis, Pelicans NEW ORLEANS — As has been their pattern this season, the Celtics didn’t make their Monday evening in Big Easy very easy, despite playing one of their better games of the season. They defended well. They hit key shots. They were stellar from the 3-point line, and they jumped out to a big lead. Still, the Pelicans pounded the paint and lived at the free throw line to slice a one-time 20-point deficit to 7. But the Celtics carried a different vigor and swagger than they have during their doldrums. They maintained their poise and responded with big shots.
