Jaylen Brown scored 27 points and 10 rebounds, Derrick White highlighted a 26-point performance with six 3-pointers, and the Boston Celtics beat the New Orleans Pelicans 117-109 on Friday night for their ninth-straight win.

“We can’t try to look too far ahead and forget about the details that need to be taken care of right in front of us,” Brown said, via ESPN. “We can’t take if for granted and get excited. Every day counts. Every game game counts. We’ve got to continue to find ways to win. Tonight, we had some rough patches but it was a good example of still finding a way to get a W.”
