In the recent time all the players and the member of Celtics and despite constant roster movement, the Celtics enter the NBA All-Star break with a 20-31 record. The Celtics won only 25 games a year ago, so they will be showing improvement in that category. Progress and gaining experience are what Stevens is looking for, and there has been some of that with the young players, including guard Marcus Smart.
That s how the Celtics have catapulted themselves into the All-Star break following Wednesday s final-shot victory over 43-11 Atlanta, which has the second-best record in the NBA and is tops in the conference.
In the present time Boston is playing some quality basketball lately and, even when it hasn t like shooting 32.3 percent overall on Wednesday night and spotting the Hawks an early double-digit lead these Celtics have found a way to grind out wins.
And The Celtics reached into the All-Star break after rallying from an 18-point deficit to top the Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night at TD Garden. Boston is now 7-5 over its last 12 games and players were openly daydreaming about the possibility of a playoff push and seeing these same Hawks in the first round of the postseason
By the time the Celtics reconvene for a game in Sacramento on Feb. 20, perhaps what he ll see is physical and mental freshness. Then, as the Celtics play subsequent road games against the Lakers and Suns, Stevens may start to think about the playoffs as something real.
Stevens said in a statement before a stunning win over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night. We ve had the same team for three weeks, so that s been helpful, . This team, starting with a couple of those close wins out West and putting together a solid week last week, I think this team is progressing and that s fun to see.
There is no doubt that the playoff conversation increases for the Celtics. They are one loss out of the No. 8 and No. 7 playoff seeds, currently held by slumping Miami (22-30) and Charlotte (22-30), with Brooklyn (21-31) also a half-game ahead of the Celtics (20-31).
