Read and React: Daniel Theis became indispensable this year

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports Quietly Daniel Theis has become a key part of the Celtics winning. We don’t appreciate Daniel Theis as much as we should. So much went right this year. So many players made huge strides forward this year. From the obvious (Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown) to the more subtle (Marcus Smart, Brad Wannamaker), to the long awaited (Gordon Hayward). The center position was supposed to be our big weak spot, and maybe it still is, but only in relative worth to the other spots in the rotation. When you have 4 high level starters that can score, pass, and defend, you...

Daniel Theis continues to be steady for Celtics

Daniel Theis continues to be steady for Celtics

Photo by Ron Hoskins/NBAE via Daniel Theis is performing better than expected and it’s going under the radar. It’s a question that seemed unimaginable all the way back in October as the Boston Celtics tried to cobble together a big man rotation to replace the void left by Al Horford’s departure. But where would the Celtics be this season without Daniel Theis? Sure, he isn’t a complete game-changer like Jayson Tatum or have the same type of impact like Kemba Walker can have, but Theis knows his role as the Celtics starting center. And it’s gone somewhat under the radar, but...

The good, bad and ugly: Takeaways from Celtics/Jazz

The good, bad and ugly: Takeaways from Celtics/Jazz

Photo by Omar Rawlings/ Boston dropped their third game in a row in TD Garden on Friday We’re going to do something a little different with this version of the Takeaways. Boston’s loss to Utah was their third consecutive home defeat. There was some good in there, but there was also a lot of bad. And there was a whole lot of ugly. With that, here’s the good, the bad and the ugly from Celtics/Jazz. The Good · Daniel Theis was Boston’s best player on Friday night. He’s massively undersized against Rudy Gobert, but used his quickness and leverage to limit Gobert’s impact....

Video breakdown: Celtics motion offense

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports The Celtics boast one of the most talented collection of wing players. So how does Brad Stevens choose to employ the size, athleticism, and versatility of that core? There’s little doubt 60-games into the season the Boston Celtics are firing on all cylinders. The young guns have leveled-up and become All-Star-caliber wings. Gordon Hayward has bounced back in a big way. The emergence of Daniel Theis as the perfect center for this team eliminated a trade deadline overpay. Things in Beantown are going quite well. Don’t take that for granted. It wasn’t...

Midseason progress report: Robert Williams

Midseason progress report: Robert Williams

Andy Marlin-USA TODAY Sports Robert Williams was coming into his own with a defined role in his second season. A hip injury could have derailed his development, but his impending return could still earn him valuable minutes in the playoffs. Robert Williams started the season entrenched within the Boston big-man rotation, jostling for playing time along with Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter. All three were provided minutes on the floor depending on the match ups Boston faced, allowing the Celtics to utilize each of their big’s best attributes. Defensively, they could call on Theis if they...
