The Boston Celtics have been on an absolute year recently. They’ve won 15 games in a row after dropping their first 2 games of the season. At 15-2, they have the best record in the NBA. After losing Gordon Hayward for the season, and coming back from a few 15+ point deficits during this stretch, it’s pretty much confirmed the Celtics can handle adversity and are destined for greatness this season.
This stat here gives me a Celtics boner that I don’t even know if WebMD can fix. There have been 4 teams in NBA history that have had 15 game win streaks this early in the season, and all 4 teams have gone on to the NBA Finals:
Celtics are the 5th team in NBA history to have a 15-game win streak during the team's first 17 games of the season.
