The Boston Celtics are coming off an undefeated week in which they went 4-0. Kyrie Irving has just been phenomenal and Jaylen Brown has really stepped up off the bench. Celtics have won four straight games.
The Boston Celtics are coming off a pretty good 3-1 week. Their only loss came to the up and coming young Brooklyn Nets team; Kyrie Irving and Marcus Smart were out, but they still should’ve won. They played isolation ball and took too many contested threes; they started to play well too late in the game and came up short.
The Boston Celtics defeated the Toronto Raptors who are the #1 seed in the East Conference on Wednesday night. The chemistry looked great all around, there was a lot of ball movement and less isolation basketball. Gordon Hayward is slowly becoming more consistent with his play, he dropped 18 points along with five assists and Kyrie Irving ran the show with 27 points and a career-high 18 assists.
The Nets franchise has been riddled by bad moves and signings. Will they ever get better? I don’t know. What I do know as that history tends to repeat itself. This team has very limited potential. Let me explain why this is the case.
After an extremely successful season, despite injuries to key players, the Celtics are looking to take their success to the next level and challenge the Warriors in the NBA Finals in 2019. Can the young, but experienced Celtics win the chip?
