Celtics building chemistry and enjoying themselves in the NBA bubble (Videos)
By 98.5 The Sports Hub Staff
Times are strange in the NBA, but the Boston Celtics are making the most of their time in the “bubble.”
Watch below for a pair of videos of players having some friendly competitions with each other. The team’s video crew captured a game of volleyball pitting Marcus Smart and Vincent Poirier against Enes Kanter and Tacko Fall.
Smart and Kanter later held a swimming race. Watch below to see who makes it to the other end of the pool first:
Kanter talked about the mini-team-building exercises over the weekend.
“It’s important to keep building that team chemistry,” Kanter said, via Celtics.com. “Everybody is away from their family, so this is our family now. For the next three months, these guys are my brothers, this is my family. So we’re just going to go out there and have fun, play hard, play smart, and push each other, but at the same time have fun every single day.”
The C’s are one of 22 teams participating in Orlando’s NBA bubble, as game action quickly approaches. As of Monday, Boston is scheduled to play their first scrimmage against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, July 24, with the truncated regular season resuming on July 31 against the Milwaukee Bucks.
