The Boston Celtics lost just one playoff berth in their transition phase from the Doc Rivers era into the Brad Stevens era. So now, they’d not want that to repeat when Ime Udoka assumes the role.

In this off-season, the C’s went through a big change when they let go of Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier, and Tristan Thompson. However, they made up for those exits by acquiring point guard Dennis Schroder without taking a big cap hit. Plus, they also snatched Kris Dunn away from the GSW, who had an eye on the Connecticut born.

What are some crucial fixtures for the Greens in 2021-22?

The Celtics will face a tough challenge from the Knicks in their opening game. However, it will be the Week-2 stretch against the Wizards, the Bulls, and the Heat that’ll decide who gets to dominate the Eastern Conference. 

November 19 vs Lakers: This will be the first time Dennis Schroder will face his previous squad after that forgetful playoff run. Plus, a clash between Jayson Tatum and LeBron James would be another treat.

November 24 vs Nets: Well, if Kyrie Irving gets to play this game, it’ll anyway be a livewire. Plus, the Celtics will get a chance to avenge their playoff 2021 series loss to the Nets. Tatum must look forward to yet another 50-point night if they’re to play the Big Three.
