Celtics are a true contender

Celtics are a true contender

              As much as it pains me to say it as a Sixers fan, the Celtics are looking extremely good right now. In their last 10 games, they are 9-1. On top of that, they have only lost 3 games since February 1st, which is actually unreal.

              How did we get here? At one point the Celtics were sitting 5 games below .500, and people were calling for Jaylen Brown to be traded. Since then, they have been on an absolute tear.

              It’s hard to say what caused this, but the biggest reason I see is that it took some time for Tatum and Brown to adjust to their new big men. Bringing Al Horford back has been a pleasant surprise, and Robert Williams is holding it down as well.

              You pair all that with Marcus Smart, who is clamps on defense, then you have a very solid starting 5.

              However, The X Factor in my eyes is newly acquired Derrick White. He immediately came in playing an important role, as he is averaging 10 points and 26 minutes a game.

              As a prior starter in the league, White is a great option to be a 6th man for a contending team.

              As long as Tatum and Brown continue to play this way, it’s hard to see them losing many games.
