The Boston Celtics have been a resilient bunch this season, finding ways to win while overcoming one injury after another.
As they take on the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the NBA playoffs, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens was asked about the parallels between the C’s and the Sixers’ neighbors, the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles showed great resolve in overcoming a handful of injuries themselves, including that of their quarterback, Carson Wentz, en route to a Super Bowl LII victory over the New England Patriots.
So when the question about the Eagles and Celtics’ resilience was posed, Stevens had the perfect response.
Though Stevens’ heart lies with the Patriots, we can’t help but think he’d rather the end result of the season being similar to that of the Eagles.
Well, this time around, at least.
