Sure, the Celtics have had an up-and-down season and are clinging to the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference and have faced their fair share of COVID-19 and injury-related issues. That isn’t stopping Stevens from believing the character of the C’s is anything but positive.
“We’ve had a good locker room with everyone that’s been in our locker room this year,” Stevens told reporters prior to tip-off against the Chicago Bulls, per Forbes’ Chris Grenham. “We haven’t always been a great basketball team. We’ve had our issues, but the character of the people in the locker room has not been it. It’s a good group of guys. They compete, they play together, they care about each other, they’re accountable when things don’t go well, they’re easy to coach — all that good stuff.”
We’ll see if they can build on their chemistry Friday night at 7:30 p.m. ET.
