Coincidentally, Davis has been in full on Final Four beast mode recently and demonstrating why he will likely be a perennial MVP candidate within a couple of years.
In his last five games Davis is averaging: 30.8 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 3.0 blocks, 1.6 turnovers, 57% shooting.
New Orleans is 3-2 during this time including a historic win last Sunday.
Davis had a 32 points (tied career high) 17 rebound, six block performance in an overtime win versus the Nuggets.
The Celtics, on the other hand, touch down in New Orleans after a disappointing 87-80 loss to the Suns in a game which they easily could have won considering Phoenix shot just 5-26 from downtown.
The only problem is Boston was even more ineffectual from deep on Friday, 3-21 including a 1-7 output from Jeff Green.
Boston will definitely need to shoot the ball well from three point land tonight if they want to get a win. Shots at the rim will probably not be plentiful due to Boston's lack of size and Davis' prolific shot blocking abilities.
