Celtics have pieces to make a big move

The Celtics are not only surging in the Eastern Conference standings, they have perhaps the best portfolio of draft picks to offer at the trade deadline. The question is, will Trader Danny make a big splash?

The numbers behind the Celtics' success (2:05)

Doc Rivers on coaching against Brad Stevens: "It's tough. He's good. He's a heck of a coach, I think, one of the best coaches in the league. I love his offense. I love his movement. I just like everything about him. He's a great guy. He's one of the best."

Chris Forsberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Former Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers on the state of the Celtics current rebuild: "I don't know what I expected, but they are in a great spot. They are playing winning basketball. They are tough to play because they are 12 deep and they clearly have a lot of decisions to make in the next year or two. They are in a really good place. I think when you look at them compared to other teams that are in a rebuild' it's not even close. I just think they are in a really good place to take a huge next step."

Celtics rally to lose in bizarre fashion (0:43)

Bucks 112, Celtics 111: The hero last week in Cleveland, Avery Bradley with a terrible foul in the final second as Milwaukee escaped with a win. Celtics had rallied all the way back from 19 down to start the fourth quarter and Kelly Olynyk's clutch free throws with 1 second to go had tied the game. Bradley tried to help defend Milwaukee's final shot and fouled Khris Middleton.

Bucks 93, Celtics 74 (end 3rd) Celtics were due for a dud, but not sure they could stop Greg Monroe (27 points) if they were clicking. Bucks doubled up Boston in third quarter (40-20) and lead by 19 heading to final frame.

Celtics 54, Bucks 53 (half): Jonas Jerebko picked up a slumping Boston bench with nine second-quarter points (making just about everything but a heat-check hook shot). Celtics didn't have an answer for off-the-bench Greg Monroe, who has 15 points and helped Bucks dig out of early hole.

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart took an elbow to the nose from teammate Evan Turner while chasing a rebound. He needed a minute to collect himself, but the team says Smart is available to return.

Celtics 30, Bucks 26 (end 1st): Avery Bradley hot early (as usual, lately) and his nine first-quarter points have Celtics out front. Bucks started slow with new-look lineup, but got a spark from Giannis Antetokounmpo to trim deficit after falling behind by double digits.

Boston Celtics swingman Jae Crowder, dinged up lately and battling what he said is a high ankle sprain, is grinding it out again tonight in Milwaukee. No surprise considering he played up there at Marquette. While Crowder clearly isn't himself, he hasn't let his defensive intensity slip.
