“Preseason workouts, that was a big emphasis,” Tatum said. “Guard without reaching. Guard your yard without fouling. We focused on that a
lot … the veterans on the team helped me out a lot in preseason and
training camp. Chris Kunitz Authentic Jersey Coach can talk all the time, but when you get that advice from the
older players, it can be more valuable.”

Brown has made the transition to playing two guards about as seamlessly
as possible. He got bigger, of course, as young players who are diligent
in the weight room do. But it hasn’t seemed to impact his quickness. Conor Sheary Authentic Jersey If he can stay in front of his man, his arms can do the rest. And he
still texts former Celtics guard Avery Bradley (now in Detroit) -- the
guy who’s position he’s playing -- for pointers on occasion.

“They utilize their length appropriately,” Stevens said. “They’re both
long for their positions; I think that helps. So you’re not playing
Jaylen at the three as much and Jayson at the four as much; you’re
playing them at the two and the three. They can use that length … we saw
that the other night; all of a sudden, Jaylen’s guarding a three man
that’s seven feet tall, and it’s a Daniel Sprong Authentic Jersey little different. But the biggest thing is they work hard on technique
and they work hard on film study every day. And they need to continue

But Brown and Tatum are also being productive on offense, and not
leaving it all on Irving’s shoulders to score. Brown is averaging 15.8
points per game, while making 39.5 percent of his 3-pointers. Eric Fehr Authentic Jersey Tatum averages 13.9 ppg, shooting 49.4 percent overall and 47.9 percent
on 3-pointers. (These were not 3-pointers, but they’re cool to watch.)

Boston’s next four opponents -- Dallas tonight (8:30 ET, NBA League
Pass), Miami on Wednesday (7:30 ET, NBA League Pass), Orlando on Friday
(7:30 ET, NBA League Pass) and Indiana on Saturday (8 ET, NBA League
Pass) -- are all eminently beatable. If the Celtics get through that
quartet, they’d be riding an 18-game streak with a five-game homestand
looming at the start of December. Their offense may not be fixed by
then. But that hasn’t mattered for a month. Defense travels, and fits
nicely in your locker at home, too.

“Brad’s made that very clear,” Irving said, “if the (defensive) effort’s
not out there, if you’re not paying attention, if you’re not preparing
the way we all should be preparing -- that goes from the head coach down
to the 15th guy -- if you’re not preparing the way you should and
perfecting your craft outside of the game, being very diligent,
understanding our system, why it works, why we’re doing it, why the hell
would you expect to play? He made it very simple. And I think all the
guys, they understand it.”
