Welcome Celtics fans! In this film session, we’ll dive into how the Celtics’ defense has been a significant factor in their success this season. We’ll explore how their methodical efforts to restrict opponents to under 100 points has proven to be highly effective, notably in their latest game against the Mavericks. 

Celtics’ Defense Strategy: The Game Changer

The Celtics secured their victory for the third straight game against the Mavericks, keeping the Mavericks to under 100 points. Though the Mavericks initially came out hot, their fire was quickly doused by the Celtics’ defense. The Mavs were consistently blocked from getting comfortable shots at the corner, a strategy that greatly affected the Mavs’ game.

An adjustment the Mavericks made in these games was shifting the strategy from primarily pick and rolls and pick and pops to keeping many of their key players out wide a lot of the time. This restricts their Corner threes—a trick that they have consistently relied on in previous matches. But despite the changes in their play, the Mavericks were unable to fully adapt to the Celtics defense’s aggressive and dynamic style.

Two Key Celtics’ Defenders: Sam Hauser & Xavier Tillman

A significant part of Celtics’ defense in the recent games involves Sam Hauser and Xavier Tillman. Hauser has proven himself as an underrated defender, holding his ground even against strong opponents like Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic. His skills as a primary defender have been nothing short of important for the Celtics this season. His consistency in forcing a miss has added a layer of strength to the Celtics’ defense. Besides, Tillman has been tremendously valuable in blocking shots and preventing opponents from securing points. An exemplary player who moves swiftly and efficiently, his ability to block quicker players like Kyrie Irving has no doubt been an asset to the Celtics.

Celtics’ Attack Strategy: The Three Pointer Advantage 

Ironically, another factor that has hurt the Mavericks in these games is the lack of three points accuracy. The Celtics have consistently taken and made more threes than the Dallas Mavericks. This notable difference in scoring has been a disadvantage the Mavericks have struggled to overcome. 

Wrapping Up: A Stepping Stone To Victory 

The stellar defense by the Celtics’ team, more notably Jrie Holiday and Al Horford‘s skills, along with the shooting disparity, has allowed them to maintain dominance over the Mavericks. Their defensive resilience, strategic plays, and the team’s ability to adapt have been incredibly impressive, which might just secure them a Championship ring.

This recent performance instills confidence in the Celtics’ fans and the team itself. It’s crucial for everyone associated with the Celtics to remember, winning the Championship isn’t just about scoring, a tight defense is just as, if not more, important! If they can continue this blend of offense and defense, the Celtics may just be on their path to victory.
