Otis Smith On Celtics: 'They're Not Really Tough'

Despite the fact that the Boston Celtics have the best record in the Eastern Conference, Orlando Magic General Manager Otis Smith still doesn't think highly of them.

In an interview with Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Smith assessed the blockbuster trades he made last month and then took the time to criticize Boston's toughness.

"They act tough," Smith claimed after Robbins said one could argue that Boston is tough. "They're not really tough. They act tough."

The Celtics beat the Magic 109-106 on Monday night at the TD Garden.

Smith went on to explain that when talking about toughness, he is referring to "being mentally strong and handling adversity well."
