Added practice time paying off for Celtics

Greg Dickerson caught up with Doc Rivers for the latest episode of Lahey Health Celtics Courtside Club to talk about what went right during the C's recent winning streak.

On Avery Bradley and the Celtics ability to pressure the ball, Doc said "It stretches what they (other teams) want to do. When Avery, Courtney Lee and Rondo pressuring the ball, the coach is drawing up a play and they want the play over here, but it ends over there."

Rivers also talked about how he made the decision on the recent West Coast trip that the team was going to practice everyday, and practice hard.

Minutes after the Celtics were eliminated by the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals, the folks at Bleacher Report tweeted a video that celebrated the C’s one victory in the series. 

Ouch. 

There are 17 Celtics championship banners that actually exist and hang at TD Garden. You won’t be seeing one for being a “finalist” or celebrating an actual sweep, such as Spurs over Cavs in the NBA Finals.
