Celtics notebook: Avery Bradley’s defense throws off Jimmy Butler’s game

CHICAGO — Though Avery Bradley gives up five inches when he guards the Bulls’ Jimmy Butler, the Celtics guard doesn’t see the difference.“Size doesn’t matter. It’s heart,” Bradley said following yesterday’s practice at Roosevelt University.In Friday’s Game 3 of the Eastern Conference first-round playoff series, Chicago increasingly turned to Butler to run the offense in the absence of Rajon Rondo (broken thumb), and going forward that means Bradley will apply even more on-ball pressure.

I don’t know exactly why this story gives me such joy. Perhaps it is the nostalgia of days gone by. Maybe it is just that I still love Kevin Garnett so much. Or perhaps it is the way Garnett bridged the gap between the good ol’ days and today’s team. I’m sure it is a mix of all of those reasons and more. Regardless, though I haven’t seen heard the recording myself,...
