"It was a combination of our defense abandoning us and them playing terrific," Stevens said. "We couldn't get stops. We talked about trying to guard different ways when we should have just do better what we do. We'll move on."
"I think we played with purpose all the way through. We were very businesslike the whole night, even at halftime and just now after the game," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. "We know we haven't played like that enough but It's encouraging as a reminder that we can."
