While opposing teams are forced to deal with the physicality and trash talk of the Golden State Warriors, Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka revealed that his response to such antics would get him in immediate trouble.

During Tuesday’s media availability, the Celtics coach addressed how his players should handle taunting and other intimidation tactics. He advised that his young squad with little NBA Finals experience has to face the physicality head-on or try to disregard it altogether.

“Be who you are. If you want to ignore it, ignore it. If you want to engage, engage,” Udoka said. “The main thing is to continue to stay composed.”

However, from his own viewpoint as a former player, he admitted that he would not be able to shrug off Golden State’s extracurriculars so easily.

“If I was a player, who I was, I’d probably get a double technical immediately,” Udoka confessed. “But that’s not everybody. Do what you do. Block it out or meet physicality with physicality.”

The Celtics coach spent seven seasons in the league and had to fight to get there. He is known as a no-nonsense type coach and was the same as a player. So, it is not surprising that Udoka adopts a fearless mentality. And even though he is no longer playing, he proved he was not afraid to draw a technical foul during Game 2 of the Finals when he intentionally picked one up in the loss.

“I just let [the referees] know how I felt throughout the game in a demonstrative way, on purpose, to get a technical,” Udoka said following the game.

However, Celtics forward Grant Williams questioned whether or not certain players will get ejected. All of this comes as wily veteran Draymond Green was spared a second technical in Game 2.

“When the refs decided to not give Dray a second tech, we expected it and moved on,” Williams told Yahoo Sports. “We just hope that grace is extended for everyone.”

Regardless of the referees’ will, Boston has to learn to live with the Warriors’ physicality during Game 3 on Wednesday night. Or perhaps they’ll embrace Udoka’s philosophy and learn to fight back.
