Clutch 3 pointers by Avery Bradley, Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder down the stretch helped secure the win for the Celtics but most notably was the shutdown defense of Avery Brady in the final seconds.
With the Celtics up by 2, Bradley stuck to Kyrie Irving like white on rice and kept the Cavs from tying the game:

Bradley is a huge addition to this Celtics team and will help tremendously down the stretch. After missing the last 21 games to an Achilles injuries, Bradley was the Cavs Achillies heel.
The win puts the Celtics 3 games behind the Cavs for the #1 seed. The Celtics next take on the L.A. Lakers Friday night in LA.
