Mazzulla, Brown define what it means to play ‘Celtics basketball'
After Sunday's 114-97 win over the Orlando Magic, Boston Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla said his team is finally finding its identity.
Celtics opponents have the fourth-worst shooting percentage in the league at 44.8 percent. The Celtics allow 109 points per game, third-lowest in the league.
This week's Celtics schedule was tough. After defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers twice, the Celtics defeated the Orlando Magic o
n the second night of a back-to-back and again on Sunday.
With Al Horford resting on the second night of back-to-backs this season and Kristaps Porzingis nursing a calf injury, Boston's
bench helped secure four wins.
Every player kept a next-man-up mindset and played team-first basketball, as Mazzulla has preached since the preseason.
"I think we've got to set the tone on defense, first and foremost," Brown said of Celtics basketball. "That should be our foun
dation for success.
I want to challenge myself and our teammates. I think playing with pace. I think those two will guide us."
