Business as Usual for Boston Celtics




   Business as Usual for Boston Celtics



November 9, 2022

Disruption in the dugout threatened to derail the Boston Celtics before the new season had even begun. Coach Ime Udoka was suspended for off court issues and Joe Mazzulla was placed in temporary charge.

It wasn’t an ideal start to the 2022/23 campaign, but the Celtics’ roster has responded. After nine games of the new season, Boston lead the Atlantic Division with a 6 and 3 record and they’re on course for another appearance in the playoffs.

The Big Players

The numbers indicate that there have been some solid performances throughout this roster. After the first nine games of the regular season, Boston Celtics’ stats show that Jayson Tatum has been the key man with an average of 30.3 points per game.

Behind Tatum, shooting guard Jaylen Brown is providing good support with his average of 25.3.

At the other end of the court, there are some good numbers in terms of defensive rebounds. Center Al Horford weighs in with an average of 4.9 while Grant Williams has been solid with 3.8.

The figures are impressive and they are in sync with a team that tops their division. There is, however, some room for improvement as the Boston Celtics look to target the postseason.

Celtics Chances Rated

Ahead of the regular season, Boston Celtics were second favorites to win the NBA championship and clear favorites to claim the Eastern Conference title. Nine games into the new term, that position is unchanged.

The latest NBA betting odds, as supplied by sportsbooks affiliated with Sbo.net, show Boston as second favorites for the pennant, behind the Milwaukee Bucks. Other teams expected to challenge include the Golden State Warriors, the Phoenix Suns, the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Those odds will adjust as the regular season progresses and updates will always be shown on the website. Readers can assess any changes while taking into account other related information. SBO provide breaking news stories, along with sportsbook reviews and handy betting guides including system analysis and an explanation of American odds.

With so much information to hand, site visitors may want to take things a stage further and it’s possible to do so. Any betting operator linking to the pages will be ready to accept new customers.

Upon receipt of a secure online sign up form, it’s likely that there will be a generous welcome offer to take advantage of on the other side. If a qualifying bet is needed to trigger that promotion, a range of deposit providers can help out.

Customer service facilities should prove fast and friendly throughout the journey while there will be other benefits moving forward. Most bookmakers publish ongoing bonuses while the majority will have in-play markets and mobile betting.

It’s the most logical site to follow the Boston Celtics from a betting point of view, but can they continue to impress, despite the uncertainty off the court?

Can Boston Break a 15-Year Drought?

They may hold the joint record for most NBA Championships, but the Boston Celtics haven’t won the pennant since 2008. They have made a solid start to the season but, in the wider sense, there are teams who are performing much better.

Milwaukee Bucks have a return of 9 and 0 and, while that’s an extreme example, there are other franchises that put Boston’s opening into greater context. The Cleveland Cavaliers have opened up with a record of 8 and 1, while the Phoenix Suns and the Memphis Grizzlies have both won seven of their initial matches.

If we look at the overall NBA standings, the Boston Celtics sit in third place in the Eastern Conference. Over in the west, there are a number of sides who have enjoyed better starts to the campaign.

The early reports on coach Mazzulla are largely positive ones. At 34 years of age, he may be younger than some of the players, but his previous three years as Boston’s assistant coach means that he’s earned the roster’s respect.

Boston may also want to end the speculation over Ime Udoka early. Reports claim that he’s already been lined up by the Brooklyn Nets and, by ending the uncertainty, it can help Joe Mazzulla to focus on taking the Celtics forward.
