Videos: Baynes talks guarding Embiid, Smart is ready to guard LeBron

It's safe to say that defense is a big part of what got the Boston Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals.

Aron Baynes' defense of Joel Embiid in their matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers was absolutely crucial to the series victory, and it's quite possible the technical foul Aron baited Joel into making with a well-timed block is one of many examples one can point to.

In the next round, against the Cleveland Cavaliers, containing LeBron James will also be key, and Marcus Smart is revving to match up with the man on-court.

Watch the videos below to hear what they had to say last night about the defense that got them the W, and how they see it being used going forward.
