Chicago Bulls coaches, players agree team meetings Sunday productive

Boston Celtics make franchise history with 133-77 victory over Chicago Bulls

Pelicans: Davis had been questionable with a right hip contusion, but he played 38 minutes.

Folks, we have arrived at a moment in National Basketball Association time when the Sacramento Kings, a team synonymous with dysfunction, is cracking jokes on another team due to their dysfunction. But we still have to find a way to win.

After the Celtics game, Zach LaVine expressed frustration about Boylen's five-man substitution pattern, which many saw as showing up the players. "Any time you get days off, it's a chance to let your body heal". His latest productive outing helped the Nets get a road win on the second night of a back-to-back, ending a 33-game skid in that department that tied an National Basketball Association record and dated back to December 21, 2015, at Chicago. The victory came without four rotation players, as the Celtics continued to hush their early-season critics with another 110-plus point performance.

"This is what I think is necessary today and they felt they needed a voice and talk too", Boylen said. "I thought he played great throughout the postseason and he's done nothing but add to it here at the start of this season".

"I've got to be the one to make sure that we're ready to play every night", Davis said.

"But I'm just focused on this team".

"One of the things we've been good with is when other guys have to step up the last couple of years, they always do", said Stevens.

After the Boston Celtics went up 13-0 against the Bulls on Saturday night, Boylen pulled all five starters. "We got the whole band back together and we can see what we can do from here on out".

Doing that has been hard, though.

In addition to Irving, Aron Baynes and Guerschon Yabusele are also out for the game due to ankle sprain. Moore sat out with a calf strain and Davis looked hobbled, at best.

"We're all understanding what the main goal is and it's showing", Morris said.

LaVine said that the players and coaching staff are "100 percent" on the same page following the meeting, while Boylen mentioned there is an adjustment period going on since he was promoted to head coach.

"[The job of the players] is to show up, which they did, and work, " Boylen said.

Since the first meeting with Boston two weeks ago, the Pelicans have alternated wins and losses for eight games.
