NBA, Celtics Twitter react to Boston’s 126-101 obliteration of Atlanta Hawks

The NBA might be a little more nervous on a team-by-team basis after seeing the Boston Celtics extend their winning streak to a league-best eight games with the Celtics’ bench chipping in a total of 44 points on top of a well-balanced effort from top to bottom with seven players scoring in double figures.

That alone coupled with the blistering offense Boston is deploying should be enough to make opposing ball clubs uncomfortable, but the Celtics did it without 2022 Defensive Player of the Year Marcus Smart, veteran floor general Malcolm Brogdon, and starting center Robert Williams III, all out for Wednesday’s tilt.

When one considers that the team is trending towards health on top of all that, the early going of this season hints that the Celtics are even more formidable than Boston was at the end of last season; let’s see what NBA and Celtics Twitter had to say about the team’s statement win.
