Team to watch: Boston Celtics

Tuesday, Feb. 5 at Cleveland, 7 p.m. | Thursday, Feb. 7 vs. LA Lakers, 8 p.m. | Saturday, Feb. 9 vs. LA Clippers, 8 p.m.

The Celtics' rise up the Eastern Conference standings continues as they enter the week with a record of 34-19 after winning nine of their last 10 games. The team's one loss? A four-point decision at the hands of the defending-champion Warriors.

Since their home win over Toronto on Jan. 16, Boston has posted an Offensive Rating of 117.0, a Defensive Rating of 106.2 and an impressive Net Rating of 10.7. The Celtics are averaging 117.8 points per game while shooting 49.3 percent from the field and 39.7 percent from 3-point range.

They're spreading the wealth too - 61.4 percent of their field goals have been assisted during this span and seven different players are scoring in double figures.

Leading the offence is All-Star starting point guard Kyrie Irving, who has taken his game to another level. Irving, who has appeared in seven of the 10 games, is averaging 29.7 points, 10.1 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 2.0 steals since Jan. 16. The numbers have also come at an efficient rate - Irving is shooting 56.9 percent from the field and 46.7 percent from deep during this span.

12-year veteran Al Horford has appeared in nine of the team's last 10 games and is putting up 16.9 points (on 64.4 percent shooting) and 8.1 rebounds per game while the trio of Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart and Jayson Tatum have appeared in all 10 games and have played a major role in the recent surge.

Boston Celtics since Jan. 16
GP PTS FG% 3P% REB AST
Team 10 117.8 49.3 39.7 45.8 27.8
K. Irving 7 29.7 56.9 46.7 5.4 10.1
A. Horford 9 16.9 64.4 42.9 8.1 3.6
J. Tatum 10 14.1 45.2 37.0 5.7 2.2
J. Brown 10 14.0 47.7 41.0 4.8 1.0
M. Smart 10 10.1 42.3 40.4 2.7 4.3

One of most impressive stats from the three comes from Smart, who has knocked down the most triples on the team (23) in this span and has done so at a 40.4 percent clip - Irving is the only player on the team that has connected on more threes on a per-game basis.

As eight of the team's last 10 games were at home, Boston opens the week at Cleveland in what's technically an Eastern Conference Finals rematch. The Celtics return home Thursday to host LeBron James and the Lakers in what is James' first appearance at TD Garden since Game 7 of that same 2018 Eastern Conference Finals series.

They close the week at home against the Clippers, who are still working to maintain their hold on the final playoff spot in the West.
