Brad Stevens has high praise for Heat ahead of Eastern Conference Finals
Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens knows his team has its hands full with the Miami Heat.
Ahead of the Eastern Conference Finals, Stevens had high praise for the Heat, comparing them to the peak Golden State Warriors in terms of their off-ball movement.
Celtics coach Brad Stevens said the Heat is “probably the closest team in the East that we’ve seen to the Warriors with regard to their cutting and shooting.”

That obviously indicates serious concern, and understandably so. Miami dispatched the Milwaukee Bucks, the East’s top seed, in only five games.
The Heat will be the lower seed in the series. They’re definitely not feeling like underdogs, though. This is a supremely confident group, and the Celtics are going to have their hands full.
