What's the perfect cure for a 20-point loss on your home court?

How about an emotional win over your former captain's new team and a dominant performance from your still-rehabbing star?

"You’re going to have a down day or two, but how you come back is what matters," said Celtics coach Brad Stevens.

The Celtics still have plenty to work on, especially after turning the ball over 28 times in Friday's win over the Nets.

"I’m not going to worry about [the turnovers]," said Stevens. "I did think at the end we really executed when we needed to.

"We missed some shots at the rim that I’d like to have back, but for the most part I thought our defense was better than it was the other night, which was a positive."

When you're coaching a team through a rebuilding phase you'll take the wins any way you can get them, and while sloppy at times, Friday's win felt pretty sweet.
