Danny Ainge Shoots Down Major Boston Celtics Trade Rumor

Irving drove for the lead on each of the first three Celtic possessions - each basket answered, twice by Booker - and on the fourth possession Al Horford hit an up-top 3-pointer for a 109-106 edge. Simply put, Boston is the much better team and, given the fact that the Celtics were 10-point favorites in Las Vegas for the battle between the two teams on Thursday evening, expectations were in line with that.

"It's great that we were able to rebound because you're going to have [a poor] half, but it's good to know that we got some of that stuff we looked like at times previous year in that locker room", said Celtics coach Brad Stevens. It's the team that didn't back down when Irving and Gordon Hayward were lost to season-ending injuries, taking LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers to seven games in the East finals.

"Guys like Kyrie, he is going to have all the focus on him", Morris said.

"We just fell apart down the stretch". Stevens scrambled to make changes in the second half, starting Marcus Smart ahead of Jayson Tatum, who sat for the first nine minutes of the third quarter.

"I talk to Terry quite a bit and I haven't heard any of those types of things, so I don't know how reliable any of the sources or rumors are", said Ainge.

Saying the Boston Celtics' start to the season has been less than ideal would be a small understatement. He fed Morris at the top of the 3-point arc, who then handed off to Kyrie Irving who had just streaked in from the backcourt. They moving in the right direction, really good friends with (James) J-Jones, he's a ideal guy for the fit, for the job, and you know, hope they have good things down the road. "And that's even within games".

But the Celtics will enter with renewed vigor and a fresh reminder of what they are capable of when they play to their abilities.

"Terry knew going in this year what his situation what his role was going to be and he was as excited and enthusiastic as anybody on our team for the upcoming season", added Ainge.

Sure, an elite National Basketball Association team shouldn't need to dig itself out of a 22-point deficit against a lottery-bound opponent.
