FINAL SCORE: Celtics 140, Pelicans 105
IN BRIEF: The Celtics snapped their three-game losing skid with authority. They jumped all over the Pelicans from the jump, going up 17 after one quarter and leading by 32 after three.
You can thank Jayson Tatum for the torrid start. He was 8 of 9 from the floor for 22 points in the first half, part of a career-high xx-point effort to lead Boston's rout. Elsewhere, Enes Kanter (22 points, 19 rebounds) had a monstrous double-double off the bench.
CELTICS RECORD: 26-11 (3rd in Eastern Conference)
