ESPN - The Boston Celtics will be entering Game 2 of their first-round series with the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night as significant underdogs. But despite the Celtics having to square off against Brooklyn's obvious star power, Celtics veteran center Tristan Thompson said that his team remains confident in their ability to go toe-to-toe with such opponents. "I mean, listen, if you have a team with Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving, you better step on the court feeling good about yourself," Thompson said after Boston practiced today. "But we don't give a s--- about that. At the end of the day, they put their socks on and their shoes on just like us. So, we're not intimidated or anything like that."
