Last quote by Brad Stevens

I can't believe it. I tried to say that earlier this week. But what he's been through and the day-to-day, it's been unfathomable the way that he's performed on the court. It's been really incredible. And it didn't go our way in Boston but the guys were resilient enough to come back and tie this up. But we have a long way to go. But what he has done has been remarkable.feedback

Brad Stevens quotes

We're going to have to play that way once the games start [Sunday] because every team is tough and you gotta play well to win.feedback

I think that's been one of the reasons why we've been at the level we've been at. Not only this year, but being able to come together in the last 15 months before that and play with a chip on their shoulder. If there's anything that would have been used to describe this group of guys, both early on and throughout, it's they have a chip on their shoulder.feedback

And then I just said, basically, Let me know if it gets close. But that wasn't the deciding factor in any moves.feedback

I'm excited about progress, from the standpoint that we've been consistent in our approach. We haven't got too high or low with regard to long losing streaks or, if things don't go our way, not being able to respond. Most good teams are that way.feedback

In Boston, you only talk about one goal, right?feedback

They're so versatile with how many different ways they can play, and that's mostly due to the fact they've got a guy at 6-8, 260 who can play all five positions.feedback

I don't really get into when you're playing people. I've seen it go any number of ways. I've seen teams be really fresh and get pounded, teams be really fresh and win, teams on the second night of a back-to-back look like the best game they've played all season. So I don't really put a lot of stock into that. It's part of it. And through 82 games you see it all. So it's not part of our discussion. Our discussion is playing well.feedback

No frustration from my part. I do what I was hired to do, and that's coach the 15 guys in the locker room, and listen, I very much understand where we are in our present state. But I also understand where we could be, and we have a chance, things have to go well, to have a good, competitive team for a long time. One of the things I really appreciate about our front office and our ownership is they are really measured. We were really active in seeking the right deal, but we weren't going to make the wrong one. So I completely, I don't have anything but great things to say about all of them.feedback

I think that, a couple of years ago, I would have thought that [getting to 50 wins] was going to be something that we were really going to have to build for a while to [achieve]. Obviously, we've been lucky to strike on a couple of guys. Everybody's got a like mind with regard to the bigger purpose of playing for the Celtics and trying to compete every night. So we're happy, but we've got to finish out these next five games well and then get ready for the playoffs. We'll look at whatever we accomplish at the end of the season at the end of the season.feedback

He has been a winner from Day 1. I'm not surprised by Malcolm Brogdon at all. ... He's an impressive young man.feedback

We don't play with enough sustained level of play and that' pretty consistent for us. I'm surprised at where we are record-wise, because we've got to play at a higher level for 48 minutes. We just don't do it.feedback

I think he's got two things: One, he's not afraid to put his body on the line. No. 2 is he's got great instincts to beat people to a spot. I think he does a good job of knowing people's tendencies, knowing what they want to do, the directions they want to go. But then he plays with multiple efforts to get there. And then, you know, it's easier said than done to be willing to step in front of some of these guys driving the ball. He does that over and over.feedback

I don't think I'm saying anything earth-shattering here: We're all chasing Cleveland.feedback

There were a few too many transition baskets allowed. But I think that was strictly coaching.feedback

Everything fuels him. I think that's the thing we've all learned about Isaiah. Everybody knew he had a chip on his shoulder. Now you realize he's hungry for more. Success fuels him, too, just the same. He's an incredible guy because he just wants to get better, because he just wants to keep getting better whether he's getting accolades or getting criticism.feedback

There are so many guards right now that can make exceptional plays off the dribble. Maybe more so and a higher efficiency than I've seen before, and Lowry's one of the best of them.feedback

I thought our guys really battled and the response was great when they did tie it up.feedback

I don't have any reaction until I know things are completed. Once that is a thing and we're made of it aware of it, I'll talk about it. I think the NBA is in a great place. I think we're all hopeful that something like that would happen.feedback

You know what you're getting from Kawhi, and he played great. But I thought those guys really changed the complexion of the game.feedback
