Evan Turner (who was in Vegas for Andre Iguodala's bachelor party) chatted with NBA TV during halftime of the Celtics 91-85 win over the Blazers on Thursday night. Turner appears very excited about Boston's chances in 2015-16:
Evan Turner on NBATV: "I think we set the groundwork for something big this year."— CelticsLife.com (@CelticsLife) July 17, 2015
Via the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett, here's more of what Turner had to say on the team's offseason moves and its outlook for the coming season:
I think they did a great job. You know, Amir Johnson and David Lee, re-sign Jonas [Jerebko] and Jae Crowder, I think they've done a great job. I think they've got a lot of players that are underrated.
I think our guard warmups are going to be great. I think we can get a five-on-five with the guards alone. Obviously just watching, their energy and intensity is great. I think they're really blending in well.
I think we're going to be good. I think we're going to be really good. I think we're going to pick up where we left off at the end of the season. I think we're going to make a lot of noise, and I think we're going to grow. I think the mentality and the culture is starting to form at the right pace. It's great.
The Celtics finished last year by going 24-12. If they really do pick up where they left off as Turner says, there's no doubt they'll make some noise around the league.
