Article Summary:

From the Celtics’ first game on December 23rd through the end of February 2021, the team held their opponents under 100 points a total of four times. After splitting a back-to-back against the Phoenix Suns and Brooklyn Nets, the Celtics hold the 3rd best defensive rating over their last 15 games. How many games did the Celtics get lit up in the first quarter by three point shots with the double-big starting lineup? And sure, it’s happened a couple times within the most recent winning streak, but the defensive stats over that span speak for themselves. The Heat are ranked 24th, the Timberwolves are 26th, the Cavaliers are 28th, and the Magic 29th. The fourth through eighth seeds in the East are within 3.5 games of each other, with the Celtics narrowly in sixth.
