Even before clinching the franchise's 18th championship, the 2024 Boston Celtics established themselves as one of the most dominant teams in NBA history.

The C's finished the regular season with a league-best 64-18 record for the 25th-best winning percentage (.780) of all time. After finishing off the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals, they matched the best postseason winning percentage in franchise history (1986) by winning 84.2 percent of their games (16-3).

That's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to wild stats from the 2024 Celtics season. Boston broke several league and franchise records throughout the championship campaign, and multiple players put up numbers that no Celtic before them achieved.

Here are some of the craziest Celtics stats and records from the 2024 season. Many of the stats listed below are courtesy of Celtics stat guru Dick Lipe:
