Celtics improve to 17-0 at home, tying franchise record to start a season

The Celtics improved their home record to 17-0 this season with a 126-97 victory over the Jazz on Saturday night.

The last time Boston won 17 consecutive home games to start a season was nearly 70 years ago.

With their perfect 17-0 start, the 1957-58 Celtics set the franchise record for the longest home victory streak to begin a season.

 That feat is now shared by the Celtics in 2023-24.

To put things in perspective, the 1957-58 season was Red Auerbach's seventh as Boston's head coach. Bob Cousy was also in his seventh season of playing.

Tommy Heinsohn and Bill Russell were both in their second season of professional baseball.

The Celtics have only one NBA championship, which came in 1957.

This year's Celtics squad is etching their mark into basketball history 67 years and 16 trophies later.
