Head coach Brad Stevens is bringing a much different style of play to the Boston Celtics this year and as one would expect, it is a work in progress from how he handles the media to the plays he draws up in both practice and during game time. Several players on the 2013-14 Celtics are experiencing growing pains with the style of pick-and-roll defense Stevens is aiming for. The desired effect is icing of the play and is designed to prevent the ballhandler from using the pick- an additional layer of protection for the Celtics' undersized team. “There’s all kinds of different ways of looking at it. . . . It’s a good way, if we become very good at it,” Stevens said. “We just have to get better at it. It’s the right time of year to work on it..” Follow Padraic O'Connor on Twitter @padraic_oconnor Source: Mark Murphy; Boston Herald
