    The Boston Celtics were asleep for most of their early MLK Day game against the New Orleans Pelicans, but they woke up in time to pull away in the fourth quarter. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal explains why this would be just a normal game for most teams, but the Celtics haven't earned the right to be treated that way. Jayson Tatum and Dennis Schröder were the big 4th quarter catalysts but Jaylen Brown had a hand in things as well while Aaron Nesmith provided a big energy boost.

    This did not turn out to be the good basketball game we thought it might be. The Brooklyn Nets walked into the TD Garden and waxed the parquet with the Celtics from the jump. Patty Mills exploded out of the gates, Kevin Durant was unstoppable, and the Nets made it look easy. The Celtics, meanwhile, did more settling than the Pilgrims. Their intensity rose in the fourth quarter as they made their obligatory run, but it was too big a hill to climb. John Karalis of Boston Sports Journal discusses that, Jayson Tatum getting a little to caught up in the Kevin Durant matchup and everyone getting too caught up with the refs.
