The Boston Celtics are one of the best teams in the NBA.
This wouldn’t typically be surprising news but it’s a bit shocking considering the team had a lot of troubles earlier in the season.
But they have really turned things around and now sit in the fourth spot in the East with a record of 42-28.
They have been surging lately, going 16-3 over the last six weeks.
The Celtics are 16-3 since this tweet.

Weeks ago, Celtics star Jaylen Brown tweeted “The energy is about to shift” and he was definitely right about that.
Since that tweet, Boston has gone 16-3 with 12 of those wins against current Playoff/Play-In teams.
Does this mean the Celtics are the team to fear most in the East?
Big Time Boston
It’s undeniable that the Celtics are rallying at the right time, just weeks away from the end of the regular season and the start of the playoffs.
More and more people are starting to see that this team is the real deal and could be a serious threat to the rest of the teams in the Eastern Conference.
However, do the Celtics have what it takes to overcome the Miami Heat, Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, and others?
They have already passed by the Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers so it’s possible that their rise will continue.
However, the top three teams are a lot like the Celtics – healthy teams that are powerful on both ends of the court.
In other words, they will pose quite a challenge for Boston.
Yet, it should be noted that the Celtics have played – and defeated – those three teams already this season.
So, can they do it again when it matters most?
