Marcus Smart on what resonated from Kevin Garnett's speech the Celtics played before their Game 3 win over the Bulls: "The fact when he said, ‘I'm a Celtics for life. That's what we do. We play, we gotta have dogs and we play like dogs and that's what Celtics is about.' That's big for us and that's what we needed to hear. We're all Celtics and we need some dogs."

In phone call today, John Farrell and Joe Torre had difference of opinion about slide rule as relates to Pedroia-Machado affair. Torre believes Pedroia didn't attempt to turn double play, therefore no interference call. Farrell contends Pedroia couldn't have attempted double play because of Machado slide.

Gerald Green wasn't about to get Rajon Rondo in trouble for kicking out his leg when Jae Crowder was nearby: "He may have had to stretch his leg out. I don't know. I ain't no snitch, so I don't know. That's not something I grew up being a part of. Where I'm from they know snitches get stitches. So I don't know."

During the Celtics' shootaround today, coach Brad Stevens says it was "good to see our guys feel good about themselves" after winning Friday, on the heels of this emotional past week. Said Gerald Green: "It changed the atmosphere of this locker room." Avery Bradley added that while it was great to finally celebrate, the Cs need to have short memories to refocus for Game 4.
