The Boston Celtics are getting ready to face the Toronto Raptors for Game 7 of the EC semifinals series. Brad Stevens revealed what the coaching staff is planning to do ahead of the most important game of the season.
The Celtics’ head coach was pretty jocular in his answer, per USA Today Sports:
“We’ll start with 17s, which are one minute sprints, side to side with the floor and then we’ll go into full court sprints, and then we’ll do a full practice and get each other and all that stuff, and — nah, we’re not doing , we’re going to watch film, and we’re going to mentally prepare.”
The Celtics and the Raptors will get one more game to learn, which team will continue in the Orlando “bubble”, after a hard-fought Game 6 battle.
Game 7 will take place on Friday.
