The Eastern Conference is very tight. Boston Celtics have been able to join the race for the top of the table along with the Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks and the Philadelphia 76ers. We still must see how they manage to keep up the pace for the remainder of the season and if they become the surprise of the Playoffs.
Defense as the base:
The defense is the strong area of this team. It has been the best aspect of the Celtics since the start of the season. The outstanding job by a debutante coach like Ime Udoka is paying off. The key of the defense of the Boston Celtics is to try to reduce the space and force the opponent to run out of time in their possessions. Celtics can neutralize their rivals thanks to their tough defense.
No doubt that Jayson Tatum is the leader of this team. The small forward is having great numbers this season. He averages 27.1 points, 8.1 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. However, he is not the only pillar of the roster. The addition in the game from other stars such as Jaylen Brown and Marcus Smart must be added to Tatum’s talent.
An exciting end of the season:
The race for the top of the table in the Eastern Conference is too tight to guess a winner. All the candidates have chances to end first, which makes any game a decisive one. Remember that the regular season wraps up on April 10th.
What we can certainly assure is that the battle is going to be between the Celtics, Heat, 76ers y Bucks. The Chicago Bulls fell from the race for the top a long time ago and the eyes are also in the ‘Play-In’, which will be held between April 12th and 15th.
