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).

Free-agent guard Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, his agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports, told ESPN.

Korver labored over a decision between the Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers, but his history and relationship with coach Mike Budenholzer played a significant role in his ultimate choice, league sources said.

The 38-year-old Korver played three-plus seasons under Budenholzer in Atlanta and was an All-Star there in 2015.

According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, the Bucks will incur a $1.6 million cap hit on Korver’s deal. The Phoenix Suns, who waived Korver earlier this month, will receive a $559,000 set-off on the $3.4 million they owe him.
