The Boston Celtics and the New Orleans Pelicans will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Smoothie King Center.

ABOUT THE CELTICS (5-4): With Horford and forward Jae Crowder (ankle) still out, and Thomas banged up, Boston was pleased with a rare contribution from reserve swingman James Young, who entered Saturday having gone scoreless in 19 minutes on the season but emerged to record 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting. “He’s shot it at such a different level than he shot it two years ago when he got here, as far as accuracy in workouts, in practice, and everything else,” coach Brad Stevens told the media. “He’s certainly always a capable shooter with a beautiful stroke, but he’s really really worked hard on becoming accurate.” Kelly Olynyk chipped in 16 points and is averaging 17.5 and 6.5 rebounds in two games – both wins – since being inserted into the starting lineup.

ABOUT THE PELICANS (1-9): Davis played through back pain in the loss to the Lakers and continues to forge ahead through mounting frustration as the superstar of a franchise that looked to be heading in the right direction but it 31-61 the last two seasons. “He’s not happy. No one would be happy in this situation,” coach Alvin Gentry told reporters. “I don’t think anyone’s happy. This is not what we anticipated.” The rest of New Orleans’ starters combined to score fewer points (16) than rookie reserve Buddy Hield (18), although he was 1-of-4 from 3-point distance and is shooting 23.6 percent for the league’s worst long-range squad (28.8).

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Celtics listed as 4-point favorites versus the Pelicans, while the game’s total is sitting at 212½.

The Boston Celtics hope to have All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas in the lineup and could welcome back big man Al Horford when they visit the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday. Thomas sprained his left middle finger in Saturday’s 105-99 win at the Indiana Pacers but recovered to score his team’s final eight points and finish with 23.

Thomas told reporters after the game that he expects to play, but just has to “figure out how to shoot.” Horford, meanwhile, has missed six consecutive games due to a concussion but traveled with the team to Indiana with the idea that he would play either against the Pacers or the Pelicans. New Orleans could be a soft landing spot for the banged-up Celtics, having won just one game after falling to 0-5 at home with a 126-99 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday. Anthony Davis scored 34 points and is averaging 31.1, nearly a third of the Pelicans’ production (101.3) as a team.

Last time out for New Orleans, they were a 126-99 loser as they battled the Lakers at home. The Pelicans failed to cover in the match as a +1-point underdog, while 225 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Celtics were a 105-99 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Pacers. They covered the -2-point spread as favorites, while the total score (204) made winners of UNDER bettors.
