Evan Fournier has 0 points on 0-10 shooting in Celtics debut

Evan Fournier made his Boston Celtics debut during Monday's matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans, after being traded from the Orlando Magic prior to the deadline. Fournier's debut was eye-opening for all the wrong reasons, as the 6-foot-7 shooting guard out of France put up zero points while shooting 0-10 from the field and 0-5 from behind the arc.

According to StatMuse, that’s the most scoreless minutes by a Celtic with 10+ attempts since the start of the three-point era (1980). There was no shortage of playing time for Fournier, as he logged 33 minutes, but the nine-year veteran just couldn't buy a basket in his new threads.

Per Elias Sports Bureau, Fournier is the fourth player in the shot clock era to go 0-10 or worse in their debut with a new team. The others: Antawn Jamison (who went 0-12 with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010), Corey Blount (who went 0-10 with the Golden State Warriors in 2001) and Kevin McKenna (who went 0-10 with the Indiana Pacers in 1983). 

The last time Fournier was scoreless in a game in which he wasn't ejected or injured was an 0-6 shooting performance in a loss to the Detroit Pistons on Jan. 4, 2016. He also had a 0-point game against the Memphis Grizzlies on March 10, 2019, but that's because he was ejected after just 14 minutes because he picked up two quick technical fouls.

Tonight, Fournier's plus-minus was a -23 and his final stat line read: 0 points, 0 assists, 2 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. Boston ultimately fell to New Orleans, 115-109, and they are now below .500 with a 23-24 record.

Fournier will look to bounce back on Wednesday when the Celtics host Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks on ESPN at 7:30 p.m. ET.
