(Celtics’ Coach Brad) Stevens was so bullish on (Victor) Oladipo’s potential that he had this to say about the rookie guard prior to Sunday night’s game: “When you talk about guys in the draft, there are guys who are sure things and to me he was a sure thing because you knew he was going to give it everything that he had, his work ethic is off the charts and he’s got an extra gear that a lot of guys don’t have.’’

“He’s outstanding,’’ Stevens said. “He just has a huge upside. He’s playing even more comfortably in high pick-and-roll and they are playing him more in that. He’s going to have games like he did the other night when he had (35) points.’’
