Boston Celtics Gear Up For NBA Finals Showdown: First Practice Focuses On Dallas Matchup


The Boston Celtics laced up their sneakers and hit the practice court for the first time since securing their spot in the NBA Finals. With the Dallas Mavericks awaiting them on the other side of the championship stage, intensity levels were high as the team went through its paces.

Head Coach Joe Mazzulla emphasized defensive strategy throughout the session, according to Celtics beat writer Jared Weiss. The Mavericks boast a potent offense led by Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving, so shoring up their defense will be a crucial focus for Boston.

In a welcome sight for Celtics fans, Kristaps Porzingis was a full participant in practice. Porzingis has been battling an injury throughout the playoffs, but his presence on the court is a significant boost to Boston’s frontcourt depth as they prepare to face the Mavericks’ size and scoring prowess.

With Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, and a healthy Porzingis leading the charge, the Celtics are ready to battle for their 18th NBA championship.
