After a couple of home games, the Boston Celtics will be on the road to face the New Orleans Pelicans for a Sunday matinee match at Smoothie King Center. The Celtics won their last NBA outing, a 121-109 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday. It was a game that the Boston Celtics needed to win after their recent struggles against teams at the bottom rung of the standings a week ago.

The Celtics’ struggles can’t just be traced to the absence of the injured Marcus Smart. They have to regain their reputation as one of the top defensive teams in the league if they want to get back to being title contenders.

For the New Orleans Pelicans, they are also a team badly in need of a win. The Pelicans have lost five of their last six games despite brilliant performances from All-Star hopefuls Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram. Williamson and Ingram are two of the best young players in the game but they have yet to consistently translate their individual success to team success.
