It's nights like these that make Celtics fans dream of Anthony Davis. The Brow was everywhere in The Pelicans' 108-89 victory on Sunday.

Superstar big man Anthony Davis isn't exactly getting antsy in New Orleans, not with the Pelicans in the hunt for a Western Conference playoff berth even after the loss of DeMarcus Cousins.

For years, we heard how badly Danny Ainge wanted Gordon Hayward, and when the All-Star swingman finally hit free agency, the Celtics got their man.

Doc Rivers has been here before, and has had way too much experience this year in trying to rip his team a new one after blowing a double-digit lead and losing to an inferior opponent.
