The Boston Celtics are scorching hot as of late, what with their eight wins in 11 games, including a six-game winning streak and a few huge victories over big-time teams, most recently coming at the expense of the Phoenix Suns, in between.

Though the start to 2020-21 was a tad bit rough, this second-half stretch has given fans a greater sense of hope as we close out the regular season and head into the playoffs.

Over the last four postseason excursions, the Cs have managed to make it to the Eastern Conference Finals on three separate occasions. This year, should they wish to see yet another deep playoff run, a few aspects to their execution and roster makeup must be tweaked.

Today, we present to you 3 things that must improve should Boston wish to see yet another deep playoff run:

Thing that must improve for Boston Celtics No. 1) Core health

Throughout the 2020-21 campaign, the Boston Celtics have been ravaged by injuries.

From Kemba Walker missing the entirety of the first month of action due to an offseason knee procedure and Jayson Tatum‘s bout with COVID-19 to Marcus Smart‘s scary calf injury a few months back and, even more recently, Jaylen Brown‘s nagging shoulder injury this team’s core has had a tough go at it this year.

The team’s fab-four is vital when it comes to Boston reaching their full potential and, obviously, they need to be on the court in order to reach such heights.

If Boston wishes to simply have a chance of sniffing another ECF run, health must be on their side.
