Heading into a pivotal Game 7 against the Wizards, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens channeled the mindset of someone who is very familiar with high-stakes situations in Boston sports: Bill Belichick.

In a pre-game press conference, Stevens tapped Belichick’s famous mantra, “Do Your Job,” for inspiration prior to Monday night’s winner-take-all contest.

The New England Patriots’ head coach was once again at TD Garden crowd to support the C’s, who defeated the Wizards, 115-105, to earn their first trip to the Eastern Conference Finals since 2012.
