Ime Udoka Following Sweep of Nets: 'We're Not Scared of Anybody'

Following a series sweep of the Nets Monday night, Coach Ime Udoka gave a clear message to the rest of the teams still alive in the NBA playoffs:

“The overall message that I’m going to give to the team and that they relied back to me is — we’re not scared of anybody, we’re not going to run from anybody. If you’re going to win, you’ve got to go through certain teams at certain times anyway, so might as well get a really good test early, and I think it’ll help us going down the line.”

Being the only team to sweep their first-round opponent in the entire playoff bracket, the Celtics await the winner of the Bucks versus Bulls series, which is currently 3-1 in Milwaukee’s favor.

With a Wednesday tip-off for Game 5 of that series slated for Wednesday, the Celtics have time to rest and prepare with a boost of confidence surging through their veins.
