There was a lot to like about tonight’s win. Not only did the Celtics snap an abominable four game losing streak, they got a convincing win over the best defensive team in the league. Getting a W is always nice. Snapping a four game losing streak that sparked rumblings of trades is extra nice.
However, the most important part of tonight’s win was the way the C’s were able to do it. The C’s dominated the Pacers by being the better defensive team. They made great rotations, closed out on three point shooters, and played the passing lanes exceptionally well. Through their defense, the C’s were able to get quick transition points which made their half court sets easier to run.
Grades and analysis later. Now, we dance!
