Brad Stevens perfectly describes Marcus Smart's mentality

Terry Rozier barely slept Sunday night because he kept replaying Game 7 in his head.

If Hayward can successfully get back to playing like his former self next season, the Celtics will nearly assuredly be the favorites to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals. That's the way it will probably be for Rozier, who appears nearly certain to come off the bench behind Irving next season, assuming Boston doesn't pull off a blockbuster trade this summer.

Kyrie Irving was not on the Celtics bench for Game 7 because of minor nasal surgery, Boston general manager Danny Ainge said Tuesday , according to multiple reports.

Official tally shows big win for abortion rights in Ireland
After the "Yes" vote is confirmed in official results, the eighth amendment of Ireland's constitution will be repealed. Irish voters have overwhelmingly cast their ballots in favor of repealing a constitutional amendment banning abortion.

The 24-year-old has been an integral player for the Celtics since being drafted in 2014, averaging 28.7 minutes per game so far in his career. "You never know what he sees that a coach does not see".

Following the Celtics' loss to the Cavaliers, Smart told ESPN's Jackie McMullan that he felt the "heart" he puts on display is hard to to "price gouge", if he were to get the raise he's been clamoring for.

"The farther you go in the playoffs, the more hard it is to lose", Ainge said. "We were able to win some games and we were able to fight through some tough battles, but we're much, much better with Kyrie and Gordon". But, as it turns out, he had a good reason. "We think that he'll be playing basketball in the next couple months". Ainge said the team is willing to pay the luxury tax if that's what it takes to build a contender. "At this time past year, I didn't think we would have 11 new players". I'm really excited about their motivation and how hard they've already been in their rehab.
