The Celtics lost their season finale to the New York Knicks, 96-92. Boston was missing their top seven players, and their reserves were carrying the load while Stevens rested their key guys. Brad Stevens and Tremont Waters were interviewed after the Celtics loss.
On the effort, Stevens said “I thought our guys came back, the last group played with great poise, great purpose” Said Stevens, “I thought they did a good job.” On facing the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night, Stevens said “Obviously Washington’s rolling… it starts with Westbrook and Beal… they’ve got great size… they can go way bigger with shooting… they’re a handful, Tuesday night’s going to be one heck of a challenge.”
On facing Washington on Tuesday and Westbrook, Waters said “he is a dynamic player…he also obviously is great at recording triple doubles and making his teammates better…he does a lot of different things”
