Marcus Smart Provides Celtics Starting 5 With Instant Energy

Boston Celtics vs New Orleans Pelicans

Billed as preseason favorites to win the East with both Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward set to return to a lineup that reached the Eastern Conference Finals last season without them, this was supposed to be the season Brad Stevens and co. arrived at the promised land. The Lakers have also been linked with Davis and are seemingly the biggest rivals to Boston in any trade. The Celtics destroyed their closest rivals (76ers) in the season opener, and it looked as though the team had a chance to win their first Championship in a decade.

In what many saw as the flawless low risk, high reward play by taking Harry Giles with the 20th pick in the 2017 draft, the Kings are starting to see some potential out of the former top recruit in his class. Giles sat out all of last season to strengthen his knees after tearing both ACL ligaments on separate incidents but has now become a valuable role piece off the bench with Bagley.

Washington guard John Wall said he recently advised his teammates to "just go out there and play basketball and have fun".

It's not clear whether the other gamer on the Playstation network was the one who reported Fabian to police, WFLA reports. During that time, the witness stated the defendant's microphone was still on and he heard the victim moan and groan.

Davis likely won't be traded this season because he still has another season on his contract, but the rumors are only going to get louder if New Orleans struggles.

Davis scored five straight points on a short fade as he was fouled and a pair of free throws to cut it to 93-87 with almost nine minutes to play. I think we just won like six out of the last seven, so we just lost three in a row. Davis asked with a laugh.

"You can't listen to what somebody else is saying, all the white noise, 'AD's going here, AD's going here, ' - AD's playing for the Pelicans this year. the rest will take care of itself", he said. However, Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry is staying focused on the here and now.

Deadliest Wildfire In California History Finally Contained
On Wednesday, the same system is expected to deliver a half inch to 2 inches to the Woolsey fire area in Southern California. The nation's deadliest wildfire in a century has killed at least 84 people, and 475 are on a list of those reported missing.

"That's what you guys talk about", Gentry said. "We don't talk about it". "If we lose, it's on me".

In a league of super-teams, it's not a great sign when a player feels he has to do it all to keep his team competitive.

The Pelicans just got swept on a three-game East Coast trip, losing at Philadelphia on Wednesday, at NY on Friday and at Washington on Saturday. So we expect him to be in the right spots and doing the right things. "We worry about winning games and putting everybody in the best situation to win games".

Jazz seek to defend better versus Lakers
LeBron James had 24 points and seven assists for the Lakers, who had won three straight games and six of their past seven. The good news is that the Lakers are still playing well despite the fact that they are still developing team chemistry.
