CELTICS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Full Court Press: Does Brad Stevens really want his team swinging for the fences so much? Depends

Avery Bradley is one of the Celtics leading the 3-point barrage this season. (Greg M. Cooper/USA Today Sports) The 3-point shot is the home run of basketball.

For every Avery...
