If the Celtics were looking for another storyline as the Golden State Warriors come to TD Garden on Friday night, they have one: It’s the 54-point scorer versus the … pit bull?
That’s what Avery Bradley and Courtney Lee have taken to calling themselves, apparently, and that pit bull mentality will be out in full force on Friday night, when Stephen Curry plays his first game since dumping 54 points on the Knicks on Wednesday. Lee and Bradley know Curry can be a handful when he goes off, but that has not kept from them from issuing the most ill-fated words in sports: a guarantee.
“No way. No way,” Bradley said when asked if Curry would be able to score against Boston like he did against New York.
Lee backed him up.
“First of all, listen. You can put this on record: He’s not scoring 54 in the Garden. … The pit bull is not letting that go down,” Lee said, pointing at Bradley, according to ESPN. “And when the pit bull gets tired, you’ve got the other pit bull right here, growling.”
BEST OF MAXIM
