BOSTON — Aron Baynes has a very light-hearted, funny demeanor and is often captured in games with a smile on his face. But don’t get it twisted. He’s 6-foot-11, weighs 260 or so pounds and is not afraid to mix it up and kick a little ass in the process.
That’s why the Boston Celtics have placed a high premium on what Baynes brings to the floor. Rarely will there be regular season games in which his value will be greater than it is tonight when the Boston Celtics (34-10) put their seven-game winning streak on the line against a surging New Orleans squad led by their all-star big man tandem of DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis.
Boston’s Jaylen Brown revealed that one of the rims in London was slightly off, something backed up by Philadelphia’s JJ Redick. Brown said he told his coaches about it before the game but apparently wasn’t taken seriously. He added that it didn’t matter because both teams had to shoot at that basket for half the game. The Celtics have gone 5-1 against the Pelicans in the past three seasons, winning three in a row at TD Garden.
