1974 – With a 102-87 Boston Celtics victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 7 of the NBA Finals, the Celtics won their 12th championship. Dave Cowens had game-highs with 28 points and 14 rebounds in the win. John Havlicek also added 16 points and nine rebounds as the Celtics won their first title with Tommy Heinsohn coaching.
Their most recent championship came in 2008 when Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett joined forces with Paul Pierce. They had chances to make it multiple banners, but were unsuccessful. After losing Allen to the Heat and dealing Garnett and Pierce to the Brooklyn Nets, the Celtics are trying to build their roster into a playoff contender within the next few years.
