“Joe Mazzulla Leads Celtics to 18th NBA Title in Historic Win”

Joe Mazzulla has made history as head coach of the Boston Celtics since 2022. He achieved his biggest win on Monday night in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, where the Celtics beat the Dallas Mavericks 106-88 to claim their 18th NBA championship.

Mazzulla, who used to play for WVU, is now the youngest head coach to win an NBA title since 1976. He’s also the first former WVU player or coach to lead a pro team to a championship since 1951.

In an interview, Mazzulla said, “You don’t often get chances to achieve greatness, so when they come, you have to seize them.” Under his leadership, the Celtics had an outstanding season with a league-best 64-18 record and a strong 16-3 playoff run.

Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck praised Mazzulla for not letting pressure affect him. Mazzulla’s coaching achievements include reaching 100 wins in just 137 games, making him one of the fastest in NBA history to achieve this milestone. His overall winning record, including playoffs, stands at 148-55, giving him the highest winning percentage ever in the NBA.
