Pelicans vs Celtics live stream: Florida State vs Boston basketball: tv channel, start time, odds and point spread, preview. Celtics vs Pelicans preview: Boston depth will be tested by New Orleans big men.
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.
Rockets vs Clippers live stream: Houston Rockets vs. Los Angeles Clippers game: tv channel, start time, odds and point spread, preview.
Two Western Conference teams that were both playoff contenders last season are clashing, when the Los Angeles Clippers (21-21), are hosting the Houston Rockets (30-11), with both teams currently on a three-game winning streak and looking to extend it tonight.
onight does not mark Chris Paul’s return to LA and Staples Center (that happened in early January when the Rockets took on the Lakers), but it’s CP3’s first return to Staples to face his former squad, the Los Angeles Clippers.
Most of the headlines and ledes and virtual article space will be devoted to that return. Will the Clippers faithful cheer him or boo him during introductions? Will those reactions affect Chris during the game? Will that reaction be a positive or negative one for the Rockets?
Cavs vs Warriors live stream: West Cavs vs Warriors basketball: tv channel, start time, odds and point spread, preview. NBA MLK Day schedule, scores, highlights: Warriors vs. Cavaliers renew rivalry.
The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will do battle for the final time in the 2017-18 regular season, the last possible preview of a potential NBA Finals four-peat. The Warriors defeated the Cavs 99-92 on Christmas Day, but it hardly carried the magnitude of what Martin Luther King Jr. day is about to bring is.
Two of the four most important players currently engulfed in this rivalry, Stephen Curry and Isaiah Thomas, didn’t suit up in the first meeting due to injury. Both are expected to play Monday. Barring trades, both teams will go in with mostly complete, healthy rosters that could reflect the personnel representing the 2018 NBA Finals.
Sexy once upon a time, filled with chunks of drama that metastasized into two years of rage and conflict, the rivalry between the Warriors at the Cavaliers ends its 30th month Monday in need of resuscitation. The surest way, perhaps the only way, to revive it is if the Cavaliers somehow beat the odds Monday and take down the Warriors in Cleveland.
