TD GARDEN — Celtics head coach Brad Stevens thought his team’s defensive intensity was up all game in the team’s 84-74 win over the Pacers. Stevens also said he knew Marcus Morris was going to have a big game based on how the veteran forward practiced this week.
STEVENS ON TONE OF SERIES:
“This series is not for the timid and we’ve known that going in…The second you take your foot off the gas, you’re going to get beat.”
“Those guys guarded their butts off,” Stevens said. “That game looked like a 1980s playoff game in a lot of ways with the score. But it’s tough. Those guys are physical. …We have a lot to get better at.”
