Evan Turner's amazing recap of the key sequence in Boston's comeback: "I had confidence [Crowder] was going to make it. Before I had told Crowder, even though hed missed a couple of shots, I said, Youve got some big shots in you. He was like, I know. When I was dribbling, I was like, 'Oh snap, Im at 15 feet, Im about to end this.' And then I thought about [Michael Jordan] passing to Steve Kerr. And I thought, 'Well, let me add that to my legacy. Ill pass one time.' And that was it. It was unbelievable actually. Ingenious by me."

Celtics guard Marcus Smart spotted with crutches and brace entering TD Garden. Brad Stevens on the injured guard: We just dont want him to put any pressure on it at all. Its a unique injury. I think its usually an injury thats associated with other areas of your knee getting hurt, so we feel fortunate it is what it is and that its not a long-term thing.

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Brad Stevens on what he wants from his disconnected Celtics: I just think we need to defend with greater urgency. We need to play offense with more purpose and more ball movement. And we need to play to the standard which weve set for closer to 48 minutes than we have. We just havent done that yet this year. And weve been living on good days, on good quarters."
