06:44 PM ET 02.19 | Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge told media members on Tuesday that it was unlikely the team made a deal before Thursday's trade deadline. Ainge said that the Celtics' unique situation as a lower-tier playoff team and with three season-ending injuries has created buzz in the media simply because so many teams are wanting to gauge Boston's motives. "My first choice is always to try to win now, especially when you have unique players like KG and Paul," Ainge told the Boston Globe. "That's always the best option. But the injuries have at least allowed me to ponder other possibilities. It's still going to be tough to convince me that's what we need to do."

I'm giving the Celtics a better chance at making the playoffs than the Lakers.

Agreed. Don't make a deal just to make a deal.
