Marshall: Defensively, they really stepped up

The Celtics held off the Jazz Wednesday night, 98-93, and it was what they did on the defensive end in the end of the game that really mattered.

And get this, it wasn't just the starters either. Donny Marshall has more:

"We show you the baskets because they're exciting ... but defensively this team really, really stepped up off the bench," Marshall said. "They held the Jazz to 40-percent shooting. That's one of the better shooting teams in the NBA. one of the higher scoring teams in the NBA. Celtics really, really did a terrific job."
