Although Avery Bradley knew there was a strong possibility that he would be dealt in light of the Gordon Hayward signing; it was still a tough pill to swallow.
It's not about how you start, it's about how you finish.
I don't think there's a better saying that could accurately describe the Celtics' first 18 wins of the season.
