This feels like a potential NBA Finals matchup someday. If it is not this year, then don't be surprised if it happens within the decade. The Boston Celtics continue to be the best team in the league and they look to cement that status with a win here at home tonight against one of the best teams in the West. New Orleans is only two-and-one-half games back from the top-seeded Denver Nuggets. The Celtics won 117-109 in the first matchup between these two this season. Can the Pelicans pull off the upset and make a statement in the Garden tonight? It will be a tall order as Boston has won three games in a row and the Celtics have won five in a row at home. The duo and chemistry of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown continue to be undeniable.

Tatum scored 32 and Brown had 19 in a dominant 107-99 victory on Monday over the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls lost DeMar DeRozan in the third with an injury but it didn't stop Chicago's comeback.
The Bulls were down by as many as 16 points but cut the lead to two with two minutes to play. That is when Boston turned on the afterburners and showed how adaptable they can be at any moment.
The Pelicans' last game was a dominant one from the second quarter on against the Washington Wizards. New Orleans won on the road 132-11 led by CJ McCollum who scored 34 points.
