Early on in the 2022-23 NBA season, the Boston Celtics have picked right back up where they left off, looking every bit of a title contender as star wings Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum having career seasons. Interim head coach Joe Mazzulla has not only stepped into Ime Udoka’s shoes with gusto but has taken it to another level with Boston converting from a defensive identity to a historically good offensive one.
To try and get a handle on just how good this ball club has been so far this season, the host of the Hoops Digest YouTube channel put together a video to talk over how the team has been playing, and what has been behind it.
Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what they had to say about what’s driving the Celtics’ success.
