Here’s the Boston Herald reporting what Celtics coach Brad Stevens’ had to say on a big test the team will face right on Day 2 of the upcoming NBA restart:
Practice two days ago was long and hard, and Monday in Orlando the rust came out.
But in terms of scheduling, the bubble gods gave the Celtics something meaty to aim for — a July 31 game against Milwaukee to kick off the seeding schedule.
The best team in the east is a welcome opening opponent.
“Me personally, you’re always preparing to play the next game and to win the next game and that’s it. Then you fall where you fall and you play,” said coach Brad Stevens…
“I like playing Milwaukee first because they challenge you in so many different ways. When you think about their defense being as elite as it is and their offense being as fast and spread out as it is, we’re going to find out a lot about ourselves on July 31.”
