Celtics Notes: Brad Stevens, Marcus Morris Hold Super Bowl Press Conference


The Boston Celtics picked up a thrilling win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday, thanks to a game-winning shot from Al Horford.

It didn’t take long, however, for the focus to shift to what everyone’s talking about: Super Bowl LII.

In case you haven’t heard, Celtics forward Marcus Morris is an unapologetic supporter of the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Brad Stevens, meanwhile, is a converted New England Patriots fan. And after the Celtics’ win at TD Garden, the two took the podium and held their own Super Bowl press conference.

Thanks for holding down the fort, Brad.

Also, nice touch with the cutoff hoodie.

Now, back to the basketball game, which was a real doozy.

Here are some Celtics-Blazers notes:

— Sunday marked the seventh time the Celtics have played before a Patriots Super Bowl. The C’s are 6-1 in those games.

— The C’s now have played on Super Bowl Sunday 36 times, per Elias Sports Bureau. That’s nearly twice as many games as any other NBA team.

— Rookie forward Jayson Tatum seems to have come out of his funk, as he’s scored at least 15 points in four consecutive games.

— Horford was in rare form Sunday.

— The Celtics’ formula for success is rather straightforward at this point.

— Here are some updates on current Celtics injuries, per NBC Sports Boston’s A. Sherrod Blakely:

— Both the Celtics and the Toronto Raptors won on Sunday, meaning Boston still holds a two-game lead over the Raptors for first place in the Eastern Conference. The two teams will square off in Canada on Tuesday.
