The Boston Celtics are poised to sweep the team that was widely seen as likely to win the 2022 NBA title on the Brooklyn Nets’ home court this coming Monday, and questions about what could be going wrong with the Nets have shifted to how impressive the Celtics have been not only in their series with Brooklyn but well before the postseason even began.

What did Boston’s Game 3 win tell us about the Celtics’ title chances? How will the return of big man Robert Williams III inflect those odds? And what were the elements that came together in the latter half of the 2021-22 NBA season that set the table for this unprecedented success?

The hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Lab” podcast Alex Goldberg, Justin Quinn, and Cameron Tabatabaie got together with the creator of the “Alex Hoops” YouTube NBA video breakdown series Alex King to try and get a handle on what it was that got Boston to this enviable position.
