There has been almost two months worth of basketball played in the NBA 2015/16 season and the Boston Celtics have had an impressive start so far with a 5-4 record. The Celtics have recorded impressive wins versus some of the top teams last season including the Atlanta Hawks, who had the best record in the East last season and made it to the Eastern Conference Finals and the Oklahoma City Thunder who boast two of the best players in the league.
With no clear superstar on the roster the Celtics have relied on teamwork on both the offensive and defensive end; Help defense and communication have helped them suppress some of the leagues superstars. Isaiah Thomas has taken the leadership role as a four year veteran and has lead the team in scoring and assists, averaging 20.8 ppg and 6.3 apg. The Celtics will face some tough matchups for the remainder of the month but with good health and teamwork they will finish strong.
