Practice Report: Bradley’s Feeling Good, Defense is a Concern

 

A few odds and ends here in Waltham as the Celtics wrapped up their second day of practice after a three-day respite for Christmas break. The top item on the docket was the status of both Avery Bradley and Gerald Wallace, who bumped knees at the end of practice yesterday and sat out the remainder of the session.

Both players were back out on the floor today and showing no ill effects of the injury.

“I’m fine. I just iced it down. I could have finished, but everyone was just like sit out.” Bradley said of the injury.

That’s a good thing for the Celtics, as Bradley has been red-hot over the month of December, shooting 50.8 percent from the field and a staggering 57.1 percent from 3-point range. He’s also been consistent, averaging 16.1 points a game during the past month, and scoring in double digits during every game but one during December. That’s helped breath some serious life into an offense that had struggled early in the season.

“He’s comfortable in his role and clearly understands what he’s supposed to do, where he’s supposed to be, how he can best pick his spots. I do think he’ll grow and get better and that will be something that will happen now and over time. I think he’ll get incrementally better as we move throughout the season,” Stevens said.

Rajon Rondo also took part in practice. Nothing noteworthy there, although he was seen doing various conditioning drills with strength coach Bryan Doo after practice.

The focus going into tomorrow afternoon against the Cavs though remains containing an improving Cleveland offense. That group includes Kyrie Irving, who is coming off a 40-point performance last night in a double overtime loss to the Hawks. Stevens and company know it won’t be so easy to contain him and the Cavs, who they routed by 30 points earlier this year, this time around.

“It probably wasn’t as much of a margin as it ended up being. We banked a couple of 3s in and Irving and Waiters really got to the rim on us,” said Stevens. “And they get to the rim on everybody. I watched the game live [last night], it was as entertaining a basketball game as I’ve seen in a long time. Irving put on a show and that’s probably putting it mildly.”

The C’s tipoff against the Cavs on Saturday afternoon with an early 1pm start.
