New team, new changes. The 2017-2018 Boston Celtics are new and improved. Many changes were made in the off-season. They got new players including Kyrie Irving from the Cleveland Cavaliers, Gordon Hayward from the Utah Jazz, and Jason Tatum 3rd overall in the draft from Duke University.

If you follow NBA, you may have seen something trending around late October through mid-November. It started in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and ended in Miami, Florida. What is this you may ask? It is the sixteen game winning streak, the longest winning streak since 2015, made by the Golden State Warriors (28).

Kyrie Irving has been putting up some excellent numbers for them this year. He is averaging 22.8 points per game, 3.2 rebounds per game, 5.3 assists per game, and 1.5 steals per game. Senior Nate Durbin added, “He [Irving] has been a good addition to the team.” Durbin also believes that winning sixteen in a row doesn’t happen by accident. It takes hard working teammates and lots of talent. They also have to trust each other.

They also have deep playoff potential, as they work well together.  Durbin also commented on the playoff run by adding, “If Hayward comes back and is healthy like he was with the Jazz, they will make it to the NBA Finals.” Is it too soon to predict that? Tune in for the rest of the 2017-2108 season to find out how it unfolds.
