BRAD STEVENS

Great stuff from the Boston Celtics head coach

If there’s a ball on the ground and you are near it, you should dive. That’s your job. You come up maybe with a little scrape, but now these floors are pretty smooth when you dive, [players] got all the pads on. They’re pretty well-covered.

I just think there’s a right way to play the game, and it’s all out, all the time.

It was, basically, there are no excuses. And the only way we’re going to improve is if we’re accountable. You can look in the mirror and say, ‘We need to improve.’

Control what you can control; be great at controlling the controllables. That refers more to trail the screens your supposed to trail. Be reliable in doing your job every day.
