Stevens: “I just feel like in the first half, we didn’t have any juice. In the second half, we did.” #Celtics

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: James Harden had an off night, but I thought our D on him was pretty good too.

Jared Weiss

Stevens: “I think Harden was off and he missed some shots he would usually make, but I thought our defense was good on him too.” #Celtics

Scott Souza

#Celtics coach Brad Stevens: Tough decision to foul at end, but thought would be little time left if we played it out for miss.

Scott Souza

#Celtics Brad Stevens: That second half night have been the best half of D we've played all year. They scored 33, and 6 or 8 from line.

Jay King

Celtics defense plays great to lead second-half charge. Offense holds back what would have been a great comeback. masslive.com/celtics/index.…
