NBA’s best plays of 2022 highlight video features the Boston Celtics

The 2022 NBA calendar year was an intense one for the Boston Celtics, who had a roller coaster of a season that spanned the gamut of disasters and successes on and off of the court.

From the proverbial treadmill of mediocrity to the 2022 NBA Finals, with road bumps in terms of leadership and a roster in flux, there were plenty of things going on to keep fans of the ball club busy.

One of the bigger on-court developments for the Celtics was the growth of Boston’s star wings in terms of their playmaking ability, coupled with the addition of former Indiana Pacers floor general Malcolm Brogdon to the team in the 2022 offseason.

This all blossomed into some seriously elite playmaking as veteran point guard Marcus Smart expanded his game as a distributor as well, creating the synergy to make Boston into one of the top teams in the NBA last year.

Take a look at this highlight clip of the best plays in the league from 2022 put together by the NBA’s YouTube channel, which of course features the Celtics for the reasons highlighted above — and a few that were not.
