Asked about the offense after the game, Irving repeatedly used the word "aggressive" to describe not only how Boston played late Friday but how it needed to play moving forward. "We talked after the last time we played (last Friday in Salt Lake City), and then he went out and had 27 (the next game in Portland)". "It shows the whole idea of a minutes restriction is to get yourself back to the point where you physically can handle the demands of this season and do so without taking steps back".

"I think that we just have to find the happy balance between those two". They shot just 39 percent from the field, 15 percent from beyond the arc and 55 percent from the charity stripe.

As one of the game's best pure scorers, able to score at a high level from all three levels of the floor thanks to his shooting touch, footwork and finishing ability, Irving is Boston's undisputed best offensive option. He was the first player do it in the National Basketball Association this year, and the first Celtics player since Antoine Walker in 2001.

IRVING ISLAND: For far too many stretches of play Saturday night, Irving looked very much like a man on an island surrounded by an ocean full of sharks donning Jazz jerseys.

Before this season began, the Celtics and Raptors were pegged as the teams most likely to square off in the Eastern Conference finals for the right to the throne that LeBron James and his former team had claimed for eight straight years.

And though Hayward continues to struggle with his perimeter shooting, he still went a solid 50 percent from the field in the contest and finished the game an incredible plus-18.

The 26-year-old contributed to every Celtics basket in overtime, scoring four and handing out four assists.

The Celtics turned the ball over four times in the first 5:07 of the game and shot just 38 percent in the quarter while going 1 for 9 on 3-pointers. The great teams bring it the next night. "And I'm pretty sure we'll see them down the road".

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - If not for Anthony Davis' determination to dominate inside for most of his 40 minutes on the court, the New Orleans Pelicans could have been blown out by the New York Knicks.

"He felt like we really weren't going anywhere", said Al Horford, who scored nine for Boston. "Usually when I have those numbers, we're up 12, 15, 20". They'll look to get their mojo back in round two of the revenge game vs.

"I was just trying to be aggressive, trying to get to my spots".

Joel Embiid, who scored 12 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, capped the scoring with two free throws and the Sixers improved to 10-7. He's one of the more vocal players in the league and that has been a good thing for Boston.

Holiday overcame a shaky, turnover-plagued start to finish with 24 points and 10 assists.
