It's a new season with new faces, so the Boston Celtics' offensive and defensive strategy is bound to change. Of course, mainstays like Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo are still around, but adjustments will need to be made to accommodate the newcomers.
Ever since Garnett arrived in 2007, the Celtics have been known for having a stout defense. This was very clear in 2012, as Boston was the No. 1 ranked defense in the NBA. The C's offense, however, struggled last season, all too often becoming stagnant and being susceptible to droughts.
Although the cliché is that defense wins championships, you need a consistent offense to be crowned, as well. With the new talent that GM Danny Ainge has infused into the team for the upcoming campaign, it looks as if the Celtics offense will be stronger.
So, how will Boston maintain its lockdown D, and how, exactly, will its offense improve?
Let's define the club's strategy on both ends.
