Brad Stevens reacted to the critics he receives during the Eastern Conference Finals series against the Miami Heat.

The head coach of the Boston Celtics said he is focusing on what he can control to get his team to the NBA Finals.

“Everyone’s entitled to say whatever they want. I’m doing my best to make sure we’re in a great position. I don’t get caught up in the outcome as much as how we play because there are just things you can’t control.

But you control mindset, prep, readiness I feel good about us,” Stevens said, via Sean Grande.

Stevens and the Celtics are down 3-2 in the series. Game 6 is on Sunday.
