Boston Celtics is an American professional basketball team based in Boston which was founded on June 6, 1946, and the team was founded by Walter A Brown.
As a member of the Eastern Conference Atlantic Division, Boston Celtics compete in the Basket National Association.
Before we look Celtics’ best season so far, let’s recap their worst season so far in the team’s history.
The 2006–07 Boston Celtics season was the 61st season of the Boston Celtics in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Celtics finished 24–58, the second-worst in franchise history after the 15–67 record in 1996–97. It was also the second-worst record in the league in 2006–07, only marginally in front of the Memphis Grizzlies.
The season was overshadowed by many injuries, in particular the injury to All-Star Paul Pierce, which caused him to miss seven weeks, and the deaths of Celtic legends Red Auerbach and Dennis Johnson.
The Celtics were faced with an emotional trauma when they lost their patriarch Red Auerbach, who died at the age of 89, just days before the start of the season.
At the beginning of the season, the days of Auerbach seemed like a distant memory as the Celtics lost six of their first seven games en route to a 5–13 start.
So What Has Been Boston Celtics Best Season So Far?
1973-74 NBA season has been the best season so far for the Celtics in their history even though they came to breaking or equaling the record in 1986 and 2008, where they recorded 67-15 and 66-16 respectively.
The 1973–74 Boston Celtics season was their 28th in the NBA. They won 68 games while losing only 14 matches. The Celtics won their 12th title, as well as their division for the third consecutive season. This was their 13th finals appearance, and first since 1968–69.
