Fournier makes NBA history with rough C's debut

There haven't been many debuts worse than Evan Fournier's first game as with the Boston Celtics on Monday night.

To say the former Orlando Magic forward struggled to find his shot vs. the New Orleans Pelicans would be an understatement. He went 0-for-10 (0-for-5 from 3) and finished with a goose egg in the points column.

According to Boston Sports Info on Twitter, that makes Fournier the first player in NBA history with those numbers in the first game with a franchise.

Fournier has his worst game of season in C's debut

Yikes.

As rough as Fournier's C's debut was, there's no reason to believe those struggles will continue. The 28-year-old was brought to Boston to be another scoring option to complement Celtics stars Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and Kemba Walker. He entered Monday night's action averaging a career-high 19.7 points per game.

Head coach Brad Stevens certainly isn't worried about Fournier going forward.

Fournier will look to redeem himself Wednesday night when the Celtics host the Dallas Mavericks.
