The Boston Celtics came about as close to winning an NBA title as one can without sealing the deal, the team running out of gas in the Finals after a grueling second half of the season and path through the 2022 NBA Playoffs, in particular, damning them after landing the second seed and the toughest of all East paths to the league’s biggest stage.
What do the Celtics need to do to secure the Eastern Conference’s top seed for 2022-23? How can they ensure they have an easier path this time around so as not to have their very legs betray them in the Finals?
The hosts of the CLNS Media “Celtics Beat” podcast recently tried to tackle this issue with guest Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
