Celtics' Stevens finally gets shot to coach NCAA hero Hunter

WALTHAM, Mass. (AP) Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens knew all about R.J. Hunter long before he hit one of the biggest shots of last season's NCAA Tournament.

If Stevens had his way, Hunter would have played for Butler instead of for his father, Ron, at Georgia State. And there would have been no memorable scene of dad tumbling off his stool after his son's 3-pointer clinched a stunning upset of Baylor in March.

"When R.J. was coming up, I said, `If you get sick of your dad, call me,'" said Stevens, who left Butler for Boston in 2013. "He finally did. After three years he decided to go to the NBA."
