The Boston Celtics kick off their 2022-23 campaign with a tough test on opening night against a very formidable Philadelphia 76ers side. For Jayson Tatum and Co., this game presents itself as their first opportunity to turn the page on what was a truly disheartening NBA Finals loss to the Golden State Warriors.

For Celtics legend Paul Pierce, however, the Hall of Famer sent out a stern reminder to Tatum and Co. about learning from their past. It would be a mistake to completely forget about their heartbreaking defeat in the Finals last season. Instead, the Celtics must use this as motivation for the campaign ahead.
