The Boston Celtics beat the New York Knicks on Saturday night. The Celtics head coach Joe Mazzulla stressed the importance of his team moving the ball and Boston responded with 30 assists on 47 baskets while improving to 6-3.

“It felt amazing. Joe is just preaching to us, don’t get tired, we’re playing the right way,” said Marcus Smart, via ESPN. “I think every coach preaches that, but to see it actually happen in action is a thing of beauty. It’s good for us. It felt good for guys to hit shots. It’s felt good for the team to see how we play and when we play that way the things we can do.”
