CLPod 44: Brad Stevens is Coach of the Month & the East race warms up

The Boston Celtics are still in pole position when it comes to the NBA's standings, but the Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons are quickly gaining ground.

Join Mark Allison and Luís Gonzalez as they discuss how Brad Stevens' Coach-of-the-Month performance got them where they are, how real of a threat the Cavs and Pistons really are, the week's upcoming games and last week's results, and how all this bodes for the rest of 2017 as we enter the season's second quarter. With games against the Milwaukee Bucks, Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs, the slate is as hard as the team may face before we usher in the New Year, and these two are starting to wonder exactly how high the team's ceiling really is.
