Why the Celtics Can Cover
Jayson Tatum heads a terrific two-way team in Boston. Tatum is averaging 27.0 points and 8.5 rebounds per game this season, with a true shooting percentage of 60.3%, and he’s been doing even better recently. The All-NBA forward has scored at least 20 points in ten consecutive games, averaging 28.2 points and 9.1 rebounds on 50.3% field goal shooting over that span. Boston is an excellent offensive team, leading the NBA in 3-pointers (16.2 per game) and averaging more than 1.2 points per possession.
Boston’s defense remains excellent, allowing just 110.8 points per 100 possessions. That puts the Celtics in the top three in terms of total defensive efficiency, while Boston leads the NBA in free throw attempts per game with 18.9. Opponents are similarly failing to make shots against Boston, converting just 44.9% of field goal attempts and 34.9% of three-pointers. The Celtics average 6.6 blocked shots per game, putting them in the top three in the NBA.
