After November 13's win against the Detroit Pistons, the Celtics coach Joe Mazzulla explained why his side has enjoyed a great start to the current season.
"The season's so long, you're going to go through periods. Just because those guys aren't starting well, it doesn't mean they're not going to end well," Mazzulla said.
"Just because we started well, doesn't mean we're going to end well. I think it's just a matter of staying in the present moment where you're at, making sure you're playing the right basketball for as long of a period as you can."
 "For us, our motivation is to just play the best basketball we can every single day and put ourselves in the best situation to win."
