Which parts of the Boston Celtics’ 2022-23 season will be the toughest?

One of the biggest contributors to the Boston Celtics losing the 2022 NBA Finals in six games to the Golden State Warriors was the lack of rest built into the second half of their 2021-22 campaign after a slow start convinced head coach Ime Udoka he needed to lean on his best players hard in the second half of the season.

The Celtics have since added proven veteran depth to their bench in anticipation of making the finals again and being ready with fresher legs, but part of that equation will also be the schedule they play, released on  Wednesday by the league.

Which months will be the easiest and which the hardest? Where can Boston hope to get a reprieve, and where can it expect a pounding from its opponents next season?

The host of the NBC Sports Boston podcast “Celtics Talk,” Chris Forsberg, recently sat down with MassLive’s Brian Robb to hash it out. Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear their views on the season to come.
