The Celtics likely had defense on the mind when selecting Marcus Smart and James Young in the first round of the NBA Draft.

Tim Welsh believes these two players bring something special to the court.

"With Smart and Young, the'll take your heart out," said Welsh. "They play at a high level of intensity on both ends of the floor. I like that."

He also believes Brad Stevens had his finger prints all over these selections.

"His influence is also in these picks as well," said Welsh. "These are the type of players he wants to coach. These are the type of gritty type guys that he had success with at Butler."
