Avery Bradley: We Love Basketball

It's always good when you love what you do. Avery Bradley and the Boston Celtics certainly fit into that category -- heck, they get paid millions and millions of dollars to play a sports. Sounds like a good deal to me. Bradley, speaking after his team's 88-86 overtime win against the Atlanta Hawks, said that he is looking forward to playing the sport he loves on the team's upcoming road trip.

"I think it'll be fun, we love the game of basketball." said Bradley, whose team heads out for a four-game road trek starting Friday. "We are ready, getting ourselves mentally prepared, we are going into every game as hard as we can."

Boston's trip begins north of the border in Ontario against the Toronto Raptors on Friday night, marking the first game of the Celtics' only back-to-back-to-back stretch. After Friday's game, the Celtics face the New Jersey Nets on Saturday and the Charlotte Bobcats on Sunday before wrapping up the quick trip against the New York Knicks on Tuesday.

But first thing's first: the Raptors. Boston has played Toronto three times this season, winning the first two games -- 96-73 on January 18 and 100-64 on February 1. However, in their last meeting, the Raptors upset the Celts with an 86-74 victory on February 10 at Air Canada Centre. In their final meeting of the season, Bradley believes energy will be the key.

"We just need to go in there and play with energy," he said. "We've been playing with a lot of energy, like today. Me, my role is to into the game, get everyone else going and that's what we are going to do in Toronto, try to get that energy up.
