Huge week from the crew from Bean Town as they capitalize on an easy schedule as well as a one-point victory over the OKC Thunder.

Although the Celtics have delivered quality wins against elite clubs there are still a few areas to be cemented by this crew. Some of those are a product of circumstance. For example, the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks have endured the easiest strength of schedule to date. Some of their wins came with major rest advantages.

On the reverse side of the coin, they’ve struggled against size (76ers) and their road record of 15-10 is deceiving since only four of those wins are against teams with winning records. More on this next week.
