The New Orleans Pelicans head coach Willie Green was interviewed following the team’s 117-109 loss to the Boston Celtics on Friday night. Boston has now won their ninth straight game, as they continue to be a buzzsaw to the rest of the league.

On playing the Celtics and how things went for NOLA, Willie Green said “1st quarter they knocked us on our heels right away, it was an uphill battle from there … The last three quarters we played better, but there’s some things we can learn from playing a championship-caliber team.”
