Momentum building for Celtics as Pelicans come to town

Jayson Tatum and the Boston Celtics will look to keep building positive momentum when Brandon Ingram and the New Orleans Pelicans come to town for a Martin Luther King Jr. Day matinee on Monday.

Boston appeared destined for another late collapse after blowing a 12-point first half lead and falling behind by seven with just over four minutes remaining in Saturday night's game versus the Chicago Bulls.

But a spark from Robert Williams III helped the Celtics find late life as the center scored six of his team's final 10 points amid a game-ending 13-4 push to secure an encouraging 114-112 win over the Bulls.
