Defense the focus as Celtics visit Magic

The Boston Celtics have built an identity the last few years under Brad Stevens as a tough-minded defensive team.

His offensive brilliance with a mismatched roster without a star has always had the stout defense as a backdrop.

To take that next step, Boston added Al Horford to Isaiah Thomas, hoping they would propel the club to the top of the Eastern Conference. They believed Horford would only bolster their defense.
