After getting pounded by the Atlanta Hawks 121-97,a clearly furious Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens said, "we had this coming".

Stevens spent extra time talking to his team in the locker room and when he came out to meet with reporters he was still upset at his team's play.

Defense, or lack of it, is his big beef. After losing to Brooklyn Sunday night, the C's allowed Atlanta to shoot 56% from the field. Paul Milsap led seven different players in the Hawks lineup scoring in double digits. He scored 25 points.

Avery Bradley led the Celtics with 25.

The Celtics are now 7-7 with a game against winless Philadelphia next tonight.
