  • Nylon Calculus: What’s driving the Celtics regression?

Billed as preseason favorites to win the East with both Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward set to return to a lineup that reached the Eastern Conference Finals last season without them, this was supposed to be the season Brad Stevens and co. arrived at the promised land.

The Pelicans just got swept on a three-game East Coast trip, losing at Philadelphia on Wednesday, at NY on Friday and at Washington on Saturday.

That was until Monday night in New Orleans. The Celtics acquired Irving via trade in August 2017, so they can not deal for Davis - or any other player that has signed such an extension - until Irving leaves or agrees to a new deal.

Teams like the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, and Golden State Warriors are considered suitors right now, but the list would expand if teams think Davis is gone from New Orleans.

"That's how we're used to playing", Smart said following the win.

"If you do that", Gentry said, "more than likely you're going to be playing uphill for the other 36 minutes".

In an interview with Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, Stevens spoke on how there is no individual player holding the team back, but it is that the entire team is no clicking. "We worry about winning games and putting everybody in the best situation to win games", he added. The Pelicans rank No. 27 of 30 teams in three-point percentage allowed, a number that worsened Monday when the Celtics connected on 19 of 39 treys (49 percent).

The Pelicans fell to 10-11 on the season.

They committed eight first-quarter turnovers, fell behind by 20 points in the second quarter and could never catch up.

Irving raised a some eyebrows a few weeks ago when he did not mention Smart in a laundry list of players who needed to step up as leaders. If the Lakers don't land Davis via trade this year, it's safe to say Magic Johnson will make a run at the National Basketball Association star in 2020.

But Boston never let it get closer than that.

Boston's road trip started off on a good note as the Celtics won at Atlanta 114-96 on Friday. Carter Jr. posts averages of 7.1 rebounds and 1.7 blocks to go along with 11 points per game, and his two-way potential is why some pegged him to become the best big man out of the 2018 draft class loaded with the likes of DeAndre Ayton, Bagley, Jaren Jackson Jr. and Mohamed Bamba. The Pelicans had 13 fast-break points.
