Should the Celtics feed Aron Baynes more minutes in game 5?

Should the Celtics feed Aron Baynes more minutes in game 5?

Nothing Aron Baynes did in game four was pretty, but in short time he sparked some momentum with switch stops and offensive rebounds. Could his size counteract Tristan Thompson’s recent success? In 16 minutes against the Cavaliers in Monday’s loss, Aron Baynes hauled in five offensive rebounds. The last one hit his palms by surprise, bouncing off an abundance of players piled in the post. As he froze, like someone catching a stack of cash that fell out of the sky in disbelief, Al Horford pointed his finger toward the rim as if he was guiding Baynes to the hole in the backyard to bury...

Most responses to Embiid’s remark will fall in one of two categories: it’s funny and charming or it’s lame and petty. Lame and petty...

Celtics-Cavs beef: after Cleveland went big in Game 2, Boston matched them with Aron Baynes

Celtics-Cavs beef: after Cleveland went big in Game 2, Boston matched them with Aron Baynes

Despite being a starter for most of the regular season, Aron Baynes started the Eastern Conference Finals on the bench. But after Tyron Lue shifted towards a bigger lineup with Tristan Thompson, All of Australia could be returning to the starting five. During his radio hit with 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Zolak & Bertrand, Brad Stevens hinted that the Celtics could make a change to the starting lineup if the Cavaliers stick to Tristan Thompson over Kyle Korver. His thinking: “The part that is hard about them going big is two-fold. 1) The rebounding becomes unbelievable when you insert...

Semi Ojeleye reflects on defensive mindset and guarding LeBron James

Every coach he’s had preached defense, and under Brad Stevens he’s received a chance to prioritize his passion in the most marquee matchups imaginable. Semi Ojeleye’s season of opportunity emerged from tragedy, when five minutes and 15 seconds of his rookie season ticked away and he watched from the bench as Gordon Hayward jumped, fell and never got up. In the midst of deafening silence, he placed his arms around Aron Baynes and Shane Larkin, speaking up to lead Boston through prayer for their injured teammate. Soon after Brad Stevens pointed to Ojeleye. On opening night on TNT, he...
