Brad Stevens Praises Marcus Smart For Defusing Jaylen Brown-Marcus Incident

Are the Celtics starting to put together something special

"The young guys don't know what it takes to be a championship level team", Irving told reporters following Boston's 105-103 loss to the Magic on Saturday, via Yahoo Sports.

"They have got depth, good coaching and just need to be a little more consistent".

But Ainge remains focused on the big picture of things, noting that this is hardly uncommon for a team.

Hunter then found his way onto the Houston Rockets for five games during the 2017-18 season, averaging 3.8 points over nine minutes per game.

"Definitely them getting to the Eastern Conference Finals a year ago showed what they are capable of".

Brad Stevens added that the heated moment was just part of playing through an entire season.

It's believed the incident between Brown and Morris was sparked and came at the first stoppage following Brown's lazy defense after a miss, which featured the veteran Morris clapping at Brown in obvious frustration.

"It's something where those things happen to best friends even", Ainge told the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett. The players recently had a team meeting that Kyrie Irving said he believed helped them clear the air.

"Experience", he said, via NBCS Boston. We're lacking it, and because of that we have a lot of learning to do. "It gets tough. When it gets hard you've got to think". "So the things you're doing, that you've done your entire career of being able to coast by in certain situations...being on a championship ball club, you can't get away with that".
