The Boston Celtics have perhaps the best young duo in the NBA with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Early in the 2020-21 season, both of these guys have looked excellent, with Brown taking yet another offensive leap early on.
Although they haven’t had the best start to the season, the Celtics should be near the top of the Eastern Conference standings when the regular season comes to a close. The evolution of Tristan Thompson and his ability to bolster Boston’s center depth will be something to keep an eye on.
