In his first season as a head coach, former Nets assistant Ime Udoka has led the Celtics to one of the best half-season turnarounds in NBA history. And now he stands in his former team’s way, starting Sunday with Game 1 of the first-round playoff series at TD Garden.

“He’s a player’s coach. He played the game,” Kevin Durant said. “The NBA is a grind, so he understands the work you’d have to put in each individually.

“He’s played with some of the greatest players all time and under arguably one of the greatest coaches in any sport, so it’s a lot of knowledge he gained from there and was an assistant coach for so long. So he just went through the grind as a player and as a coach, and throughout that time, he just understood what winning basketball is like.”

After bouncing around as a player with the Lakers, Knicks, Trail Blazers and abroad, Udoka found a home as a glue guy in San Antonio playing for Gregg Popovich, with whom he got his first assistant coaching gig in 2012. Then came a season with the 76ers, and another under Steve Nash on the Nets before finally getting his shot as head coach with the Celtics.

“I got to know him pretty well. He’s a real cool dude,” Nic Claxton said. “He’s doing a phenomenal job especially with them having a rocky start and them coming back [after] the All-Star break. … That’s dope. I’m happy for him. He’s a good guy. But we’ll be ready for him.”
