It seems that the absence of their coach Ime Udoka has not affected them, The Boston Celtics end the week as the hottest team in the NBA reaching six wins in a row with a Jayson Tatum in super star plan.
Boston added its sixth consecutive win by defeating the Pistons 117-108 with a brilliant performance by Jayson Tatum who commanded the team with 43 points. But the victory was a team effort, in addition to Tatum, they collaborated in the victory, Grant Williams with 19 points and 10 rebounds and Marcus Smart, who added another double-double with 18 points and 10 assists.
Boston is placed with a record of 10-3 and is on the heels of Milwaukee in the race for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, the Bucks are 10-2, so unless something strange happens, We will see this pair of teams fighting until the end to reach the NBA Finals.
Keys to a good time in Boston
With Joe Mazzulla at the controls, Boston has won 10 of its first 13 games, Not bad for a coach who took on the team with a month to go before the season started. They are so far the best offensive team with 119 points per game, that is largely due to Jayson Tatum is having a good start to the season, who is averaging 32.3 points, the best record of his career.
In addition, they have started without an important piece, because Robert Williams, still recovering from his knee injury, so when he returns, Boston will have a major weapon on defense.
The season is young, but the champions of the Eastern Conference have great expectations and for now they must take advantage of what happens with teams like Brooklyn, Sixers or Miami, who for various circumstances have not started in the best way. So taking a few games ahead to take advantage of home play in the playoffs isn’t bad.
