Just In: Joe Mazzulla gets 100% real on Knicks challenge that elevated Celtics…

The Boston Celtics played a complete game against the New York Knicks on Saturday night, as every member of Boston’s starting five scored at least 12 points in the 116-102 win.

After the game Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla praised his team, while also indirectly complimenting the Knicks, per Bobby Manning of CLNS:

“Mazzulla: ‘The #Knicks brought the best out of us. They challenged us … there were so many positives from each player.’”

It was truly a complete game from a Celtics squad that clearly is the team to beat in the NBA Eastern Conference.

The Knicks charged back with a 13-2 run bridging the end of the third quarter and the start of fourth quarter, cutting the deficit 99-90 on Bojan Bogdanovic’s jumper with 9:17 to play in the period. But the Celtics took advantage of three Knicks turnovers and six missed shots to go on a 10-0 run to extend the lead 109-90 with just under five minutes left in regulation.

Celtics superstar forward Jayson Tatum shared the secret to his team’s success after the game.
