Boston Celtics Team News

After a great last season, the Celtics again found a place in the Finals. This summer has been very turbulent and busy in Massachusetts. The head coach of the team, Ime Udoka, who did a great job last season, was suspended from the position of head coach. Udoka was replaced by Joe Mazzulla, who will continue according to the principal that Udoka has already appointed.

Boston entered this season with a couple of great reinforcements.

The team was strengthened by Malcolm Brogdon and Danilo Gallinari, who injured his ACL during the preparatory matches of the Italian national team. Former All-Star Blake Griffin arrived as his replacement. What is very important for the Celtics is that they brought in excellent signings on minimum contracts. Jake Layman, Justin Jackson, and Noah Vonleh arrived, players who can bring great width in both directions off the bench. Brad Stevens did an excellent job and provided coach Mazzula with a very powerful team, which is young above all, but with a lot of experience already behind it.

Tatum and Brown are the main stars of the team, who carried Boston to the top of the East last season. The Celtics ground the opponents with their defense, and Marcus Smart and Rob Williams dominated in that segment. Smart was also named the league’s best defender.

This season they have problems with injuries; Danilo Gallinari is out until further notice, while “Time Lord” Williams had an operation on the meniscus, which he has had problems with since last season, so he will be out for a couple of months.

Philadelphia 76ers Team News

The Sixers were stopped in the semifinals by the Heat last year, but they showed a serious improvement in their game compared to previous seasons. PJ Tucker and Trez Harrell arrived, who, with their energy and experience, will contribute a lot to the jump of the 76ers.

Danny Green and Isaiah Joe left the team. This season, the 76ers, led by Embiid and Harden, will try to get their hands on the big Final, which they have been waiting for for a long time. Last season they got great minutes in the form of Maxey, who had the game to bury opponents to the top.

But still, the main star this season, if he is not injured, will be Joel Embid, who was especially inspired against the Celtics and has been causing them serious problems for years. This will be especially pronounced in these games when the Celtics will not have Rob Williams in their lineup.

The 76ers played a very good preseason, winning all four preseason games, and they looked very good.

Probably because of his contact with nature, he is so calm, and often, his predictions have such cold-blooded reasoning.
