What is the driving force that has not only kept the Boston Celtics afloat after getting gobsmacked by the injury of key players and a scandal terrible enough to get the ball club to suspend the head coach that brought them to within two wins of an NBA title? Even with a handful of losses the Celtics (and their fans) would like to forget, Boston has managed to hang onto the top record in the league.
Is it the star power of wings Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown? Is it the moves the front office made to augment the team’s bench in the offseason to make it one of the association’s deepest?
Could it be interim head coach Joe Mazzulla’s offense? Is it something synergistic combining all of the above?
The hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast linked up with blogger Dan Greenberg making a guest appearance to talk over exactly this question along with an update on Boston’s play of late, the All-Star race, and more.
Take a look at the pod embedded above to hear what they had to say.
