But Stevens doesn’t give the process that much thought. In fact, he’s rather calm and maybe even a little fatalistic about his future with the Celtics. The club is clearly overjoyed with his performance and happy he has four more years left on his contract, but Stevens is assuming nothing. In the case of the tweets, he’s not going to be hindered by those who reply. “I don’t ever really read the responses,” Stevens told the Herald. “I’ll check the people I’m following, but . . . I haven’t changed anything. I still follow the same people. I tweeted the one time, as you know, and I might here and there. But I don’t have a whole lot of desire to do it, but maybe if my owners tell me I need to or Danny (Ainge) says I need to, maybe I will.” Boston Herald

Stevens is a numbers guy who heavily utilizes analytics. However, Zeller said that Stevens and his staff do a good job providing the necessary information to the players without overwhelming them. "He tells us the pertinent information, but not too much to overload us," Zeller said. ESPN.com

Marcus Smart wasn’t sent to the bench because he overslept and was late for the shootaround. As Stevens explained to the rookie, he planned to start Crowder anyway. But Smart, who finished with 11 points and six rebounds, accepted his punishment without any excuses. “I overslept, my alarm didn’t go off. By the time I looked at my phone clock, it was time to be here. I had to push it. I was 15 minutes late,” Smart said. “The coach is doing what he was supposed to do. It’s not acceptable when you have everybody here, especially for a rookie. .?.?. Coach made the right decision. I apologized to the team and coaches. I have to take it like a man. “It actually is my first time, but that doesn’t excuse it.” Boston Herald
