Back in July, Boston’s rookie class captured the imagination of fans in Las Vegas. The Summer Celtics played with smarts, joy, and unity in Summer League. It was a good first step to build chemistry for a team that suffered in that area the year before.

As a team, they may not have been as suffocating as their more experienced teammates on defense, but they put together Boston’s best offensive output of training camp.
