Celtics coach Joe Mazzulla on Boston’s postseason expectations

The title may have changed for Boston Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla — the interim tag is no more — but the expectations are every bit the same as the second after the Golden State Warriors won Game 6 of the 2022 NBA Finals: Win the 2023 NBA championship.

But with the rest of the league loading up on depth to make their own postseason run in the 2023 NBA playoffs, what are the expectations for the Celtics relative to the arms race that has been building to temper their regular season excellence both in their own conference and the exoduses from the Brooklyn Nets to the Dallas Mavericks and Phoenix Suns?

The folks over at the Yahoo Sports YouTube channel had the good fortune to have reporter Kristin Peek interview the freshly minted full head coach at the Salt Lake City All-Star game on the new title, the season so far, and the Celtics’ postseason expectations.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
