Celtics’ Confidence High Going into Cavs Match-up

Maybe it’s simply a hangover in part from a pair of intoxicating battles with the two best teams in the NBA, but the Boston Celtics appear to be playing with a newfound poise and confidence. This young Boston roster truly believes it is now capable of competing with anyone in the league.

Boston was notably composed at the end of Saturday’s win in Charlotte. Even as the Hornets, winners of four straight and lingering near the top of the East, made a late-game charge, Boston never flinched. For a team that struggled to win close games at the start of the season, the Celtics played like a team that knew it was going to pull that game out (and sandwiched between the Golden State and Cleveland games, the Celtics needed to find a way to steal it).

[Tyronn] Lue is scheduled to interview for the job on Tuesday, according to multiple sources. One has to wonder if he thinks his meeting could just be a formality and/or insurance in case former Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni, whose job it is to lose, doesn’t accept the job.

Sources have been saying for weeks that the job is [Mike] D’Antoni’s to turn down. They say he’s the guy the ownership group wants. One source even said the 69-year-old would have to bomb his interview with the Sixers owners not to be offered the job.

Jerami Grant wants to be back with the Denver Nuggets next season. Whether that happens may be up to Nuggets president of basketball operations Tim Connelly.

Grant, who is expected to opt out of his player option, according to a league source, made himself invaluable throughout the Nuggets’ postseason run. When the Nuggets traded a first-round pick last summer for Grant, they hoped he’d provide the defensive versatility that he ultimately did.
