At 10-7, the Cavs haven’t taken too many games seriously this year with many of their core having gone to the NBA Finals the last three years. So pardon them if they have the blinders on for a few more weeks before truly gearing up. “Nah,” JR Smith told B/R when asked if they’re paying attention to the league-leading Celtics. “It’s too early. Too early. We don’t start paying attention until after All-Star break when you see teams spacing out (in the standings). You start getting your best shot after the All-Star break.”
The Wolves have lost consecutive games twice this season, resoundingly to Indiana and Detroit on back-to-back nights in the season’s second week and again on consecutive nights this week. “We’ve got to find a rhythm to winning,” Wolves star Jimmy Butler said. “We’ve got to get back to the fundamentals. Everything we talked about, you can’t drop three in a row because then everything starts to go in the wrong direction. But we’ll be OK. We can’t feel sorry for ourselves, I’ll tell you that. Go out there and figure it out.”
The Boston Celtics’ winning streak had recently reached double digits and, after a satisfying win over the Toronto Raptors, coach Brad Stevens was doing his best to downplay the growing hype around his team’s run. These Celtics, Stevens pleaded, were not sitting around talking about their accomplishments. Inside the Celtics locker room, that sentiment was relayed to third-year guard Terry Rozier, who pondered it for a moment. “We don’t talk about [the streak],” Rozier started, before a smile appeared and he slightly amended his statement. “When [Stevens is] not around we do.”
