If you are a fan of the Boston Celtics, the first part of this NBA season was a bit uncomfortable, to put it gently.
The team underwent a few changes in the offseason, presumably so they could be one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.
But the Celtics came into the season looking uneven and rough and things stayed rocky for months.
That certainly isn’t the case anymore.
The Celtics were as low as the 11th seed in January.
Now, Boston holds the No. 1 seed in the East.

There was a time when Boston was ranked as low as the 11th seed in the East.
On Sunday night, the team was able to tie for first place.
While other teams have fallen from great heights, the Celtics have only been going up and up and up.
There is a slew of other NBA teams who aren’t performing as they should.
The Atlanta Hawks, New York Knicks, and Los Angeles Lakers come to mind when you think of underperforming teams.
They could all learn a thing or two from the Celtics, who righted their wrongs and steered their ship in the proper direction.
During the team’s struggles, new head coach Ime Udoka said that the best times for Boston were still ahead.
He claimed that the multiple injuries and absences plaguing the team were the reasons they were towards the bottom of the standings.
Udoka told fans they just needed to have patience and believe in him and the team.
It turns out he was right: now that Boston is healthy and has found a rhythm, they are on fire.
They have won 24 of their last 28 games and have taken down some of the biggest competitors in the league.
There was a time when other teams thought playing against the Celtics would ensure an easy win but now they’re the scariest squad in the East.
