Mazzulla says he is prepared for the most important recreation of his NBA teaching profession.
On Thursday, Joe Mazzulla will coach the most important recreation of his NBA teaching profession.
How prepared is he, with the Celtics’ again towards the wall in a do-or-die Recreation 6 on the highway at Philadelphia?
“I’m prepared for conflict,” Mazzulla instructed reporters earlier than the sport on Monday.
Mazzulla, who confronted criticism this week for not calling a timeout on the finish of Recreation 4 and for the group’s lackluster efficiency in Recreation 5, has made a change to the beginning lineup for Recreation 6.
The Celtics will begin Robert Williams III as a substitute of Derrick White. The transfer marks a return to the Celtics’ double-big lineup with Williams beginning alongside Al Horford.
