Since the new NBA season started, the #Boston Celtics have been the most successful teams with a record of 10 straight wins and two losses at the beginning of the season. The main thing everyone is concerned about is how are the Celtics getting these results and are the best team in the NBA this season? Although one of their star players, Gordon Hayward, who was signed by Boston this offseason, was injured on the season opener, the team has flourished. There is some reason why their performance is the way it is, and I will break them down for you.

Brad Stevens

Brad Stevens has become one of the best coaches in a very short time.

He is already being praised by some of the greats, including Gregg Popovich himself. According to MassLive, Popovich had very high praise for Stevens, saying that he is a very intelligent coach and that he does the right thing with his team. He also said that although Stevens still has a long way to go in the coaching world and he will eventually get even more experience, he is already a heck of a coach.

Kyrie Irving

This offseason, #Kyrie Irving was traded to the Boston Celtics [VIDEO], leaving LeBron James and the Cavs. Cleveland got Isaiah Thomas, Ante Zizic, Jae Crowder and a 2018 pick from the Nets.

During this 10-game winning streak, Irving has contributed in a lot of ways. He averages 22.0 points with 5.7 assists per game, and if he keeps this up or gets even better, it will just be better for Boston.

The young blood

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown are also playing very well. Right now, they are doing what nobody expected them to do, and they helped their team in a lot of ways, defensive and offensive. Tatum averages 13.5 points per game, and Brown is averaging 14.8. With performances like that, their team will just continue to win and they will have the potential to become future NBA superstars.

The big men

Every team that is trying to showcase good results should have a veteran player on their roster who has more experience and will help the other guys. Al Horford is that player on the Celtics. Let's just remember when he hid his teammate's chain and prevented his team from getting a technical.

Also, Horford is having a great season, both contributing on the defensive and offensive end of the floor, averaging 14.3 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 4.7 assists per game. Aron Baynes is the other Celtics big man that is having the best season of his career so far, averaging 7.1 points per game and helping the Celtics in every way possible.

With that being said, the Boston Celtics have all of the necessary players needed to achieve great results and right now they can not be stopped. We will see if that keeps up for the remainder of the season, but looking at the way they are right now, it probably will. #Basketball
