The Celtics find themselves at 32-23 overall — 12 wins better than this time a year ago — and owning the third best record in the Eastern Conference. After Boston closed out the first half with a thrilling overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers, Stevens was asked about the looming trade deadline.

“I trust our front office to make the right recommendations and the right calls to help our team,” he said. “I think it would have to be something unique to continue to help our team. I think that we’ve got a lot of future flexibility and, at the same time, we’ve got a hard-playing group of guys. … There’s a lot of room to improve with the group that’s in there. My focus will be on that.”
