Ainge: Celtics 'want to continue' momentum from playoff berth

BY foxsports • June 11, 2015

The Boston Celtics qualified for the 2014-15 playoffs despite just about every prognosticator predicting they'd fall somewhere at the bottom of the Eastern Conference before the season began.

The experience was a positive one for those involved, and, according to director of player personnel Austin Ainge, the Celtics are looking to build on it this summer, per ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg:

"Our coaches do a great job and our players are in and working hard. We couldn’t be more pleased. Even the guys who aren’t here, we know they are working elsewhere and guys are getting better. I think they felt that they had some momentum going last year and want to continue it. Everybody is working hard." 

Several players from last year's roster are working out at the team's facility, and those who aren't are maintaining communication with the organization, letting them know how hard they're striving to improve on their own time.
