Walker leads Celtics into battle with Pacers

Surging Boston heads into Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Wednesday night a winner in six of its past seven games, matched up with an up-and-down Indiana Pacers' bunch.

The Celtics are winners of four straight in this current run, with each of the past three coming by at least 13 points. Coach Brad Stevens credits All-Star guard Kemba Walker for setting the tone, as Boston's been effective closing out both a contender in the Denver Nuggets and a sputtering Cleveland Cavaliers' side.

"I just told the team afterwards, I said, 'If you want to be special, then model after Kemba,'" Stevens said in his postgame press conference following the 110-88 rout of Cleveland on Monday. "Special's not for everybody, but that's just different. That's just always ready, always ready to be called upon, always loving to play. You know, he's not untying his shoes, he's staying ready because he knows this game can change in a heartbeat."
