One magical at-bat showed how Mookie Betts -- No. 14 on ESPN the Magazine's list of the most dominant athletes of the year -- morphed into an MVP.

Robert Williams has shown tonight why he was a potential top 10 talent in the draft each of the past two years. Really impressive showing against one of the league's best players tonight.

Anthony Davis, who was questionable to play with a right hip contusion, is not moving around well. He's taken a few hard falls in this game, and has gotten up slowly more than once.

Marcus Morris remains red hot, as he has been all season, going 3-6 from 3 and scoring 22 points to lead Boston so far tonight. The rest of the Celtics, though, are an ice-cold 2-for-22 from 3.

Celtics lead the Pelicans 59-53 at halftime. Despite five guys being out, Boston has played well. New Orleans has looked like a team dragging on the second night of a back-to-back. Anthony Davis has 16 points, but appeared to maybe bang his hip again late in the second.

Depleted Celtics still too much for Pelicans, Davis

The Boston Celtics were without five players, including Kyrie Irving, Al Horford and Gordon Hayward, Monday night, but still breezed to a 13-point win over New Orleans. Despite dealing with a hip contusion, Anthony Davis led the Pelicans with 41 points.

Rookie center Robert Williams has given Boston some good minutes here in the first quarter. He's contested multiple shots by Anthony Davis — and just rejected him at the rim.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Anthony Davis is playing tonight. No restrictions.

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Marcus Morris and Daniel Theis will start for the Celtics tonight. Also sitting out: Gordon Hayward, who is under the weather. Five guys out for the Celtics tonight in total.

Brad Stevens says Al Horford has been dealing with patellar tendinitis for some time, and it just hasn't healed. Stevens adds Kyrie Irving has shoulder stiffness, but that he doesn't expect it to be an issue "long-term."

Tim Bontemps ESPN 

No Al Horford, Kyrie Irving, Guerschon Yabusele or Aron Baynes tonight for Boston.
