Ainge on Big Show: C's 'Big 4' must deliver

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined The Big Show on Wednesday and talked about his team's playoff hopes. The Celtics looked strong in a first-round win over the Heat after struggling for much of the regular season. "I think that the inconsistency is more a state of mind," Ainge said. "Everyone said we're going to turn the button on and off. I don't think we did that except in the course of each game. It was like we came out to play all the big games of the year and many others.
