Jrue Holiday will never get the same accolades that Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins receive, but he’s almost played just as big a role in the New Orleans Pelicans’ overall success this season. He registered team-highs in points (27) and assists (eight) in the win and the Pelicans (24-21) picked up their fifth victory in the last seven games. “I really just take the opportunity that’s given,” Holiday said. “From there, make some floaters, make some jump shots — it’s just so easy when they key in on two people. It’s pretty much just leaving me with one person.”
Sorry to shut down the party, but a Davis-to-the-Celtics deal isn’t happening any time soon. During an appearance on “The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz,” ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski explained why Davis will remain in a Pelicans jersey. “New Orleans has no intention of trading Anthony Davis,” Woj said. “Boston’s uniquely positioned in that they have draft picks and young players and all the things — if a team was gonna trade Anthony Davis — all the things you’d want. But [the Pelicans] aren’t trading Anthony Davis… He wants to make it work in New Orleans. He wants to get into the playoffs.”
Storyline: Anthony Davis to Celtics?

The Pelicans are nowhere close to even entertaining a single trade proposal for Davis from Boston or anyone else. The Brow, based on everything I’ve heard, badly wants to make it work with the Pels and also happens to be under contract for two more seasons after this one. No matter how many people suggest it, Boston can’t trade for Anthony Davis. So can we drop this one?
