Boston Celtics

The Celtics have been on fire since the new year and finished the regular season with both the top Defensive Rating (106.9) and top half-court Defensive Rating (90.4), excluding garbage time, in 2022 according Cleaning The Glass.

While Boston’s defense gets most of the attention, its offense has quietly been elite recently too. The Celtics are first in half-court Offensive Rating (105.1) since Feb. 1, and this could be the reason why they survive Robert Williams’ absence in the first round of the playoffs.


Brooklyn Nets

The Nets are an offensive scoring machine.

In a season of inconsistent lineups and missing stars, scoring has rarely been an issue for Brooklyn. They ranked 10th for the full season in Offensive Rating (113.2) and seventh (117.9) since the All-Star break.

This team is built around its two stars, and Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving can put up incredible numbers unlike any duo in the NBA. In 523 regular-season minutes, that two-man lineup has a 122.8 Offensive Rating, the highest mark of any duo in the NBA.

The Nets have an uphill climb in this matchup. They lost the regular season series with the Celtics 1-3, including a 126-120 thriller with both Durant and Irving in the lineup.
