Have to give credit where credit is due. Ime Udoka's goal was to have the Celtics have a defensive identity this season, and over the past six weeks they have been elite. According to Stat Muse, the Celtics have both the NBA's best defensive rating and Field Goal Percentage defense since Christmas. Not surprisingly the team has been winning a lot more during this period.
Things seem to be looking up for this Boston Celtics squad.
