As New Orleans star Anthony Davis prepares for the second half of the season with the Pelicans holding on to the eighth seed in the Western Conference, he still thinks about what could have been this year had teammate DeMarcus Cousins not ruptured his Achilles. “We could have gone through the playoffs. No one could really stop us as bigs. We go to the Finals if we went,” Davis told ESPN’s Rachel Nichols in an interview over All-Star weekend. [Teammate Rajon Rondo] reminds us of it: ‘You guys are the two best bigs. I know what it takes to win championships; we got it.’”

Rondo aggressively hounded Thomas’ every move, even during stoppage in play late in the first quarter, before the two had to be separated and were tossed with 33.3 seconds left. Thomas said Rondo hit him in the face three times and brought up the video tribute the Celtics had planned for him earlier this season. That video became a source of controversy because the Celtics had planned it on the same day as Paul Pierce’s jersey retirement ceremony, which took place in Boston this past Sunday. “Whatever reason, he’s an upset guy about me,” Thomas said after Wednesday’s game. “I don’t know what it is, but it’s fine. He kept bringing the tribute up, when I was the one that shut the tribute down. I’m far past that. … For me to be ejected was uncalled for.”

Asked if he has had any other history with Rondo, Thomas said he didn’t know. “I mean, my team beat his team in the playoffs last year,” Thomas said, referring to the Celtics beating the Chicago Bulls 4-2 in the first round last postseason. “Maybe that is what’s wrong. I don’t know. There’s nothing. Nothing should’ve made that escalate like it did. He already had his agenda written down right when I checked into the game. It was obvious. He picked me up full court, trying to be physical.

The NBA is filled with insomniacs. When point guard Rajon Rondo was in Boston, he used to watch Celtics replays at 2 a.m., then call power forward Kevin Garnett at 4 for a debrief. When Derrick Rose was in Chicago, he kept a key to the Bulls practice facility so he could play cutthroat with his roommates in the middle of the night. Kobe Bryant’s sunrise workouts became the stuff of legend in Los Angeles, but the Mamba wasn’t necessarily setting his alarm at dawn. He was usually awake anyway. Celtics forward Gordon Hayward has sat out this whole season, after breaking his ankle Opening Night, but sleep remains elusive. He plays video games, specifically Destiny 2, until his lids close.
