Boston head coach Brad Stevens gained NBA betting success with hard-working team-first players. As a result, Irving is gone and the Celtics are back up. As a matter of fact, Boston has bolted out of the gate in impressive fashion. By contrast, the Clippers employ the star system. Kawhi Leonard’s arrival flipped expectations and the Los Angeles brand.
