Improving how the Boston Celtics moved the rock ahead of the 2021-22 NBA season was a major priority for (then) new head coach Ime Udoka, and the Celtics transformed themselves from a moribund passing team near the bottom of the league in assists per game to one of the better passing squads in the NBA.
With that increased propensity to pass the ball came a redoubled creativity in how it was done, making for some especially flashy dimes whizzing about the court from players on Boston’s roster over the course of the season.
So much so that the Celtics managed to make the NBA’s video compilation of the best court vision of the 2021-22 campaign across the entire league.
Be sure to take a look at the video embedded above to see what caught the league office’s eye with regards to Boston’s passing.
