Kemba Walker and role players step up in victory: 10 Takeaways from Celtics/Pacers

Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports Kemba Walker scored 32 points and Boston’s bench was terrific in snapping a losing streak 1. The Celtics got off to an incredibly slow start. Boston fell behind 12-0 after a Daniel Theis jumper was ruled to have come after the shot clock had expired. The first official basket for the Celtics didn’t come until Jaylen Brown hit a pullup with 9:34 left in the first quarter. It had the feeling of “here we go again!”. Unlike in the Atlanta game, and some other games recently, Boston didn’t completely unravel. Following the...

Celtics’ Tristan Thompson Sees Connection Forming With Daniel Theis

Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens on Friday acknowledged how the double-big lineup of Tristan Thompson and Daniel Theis didn’t exactly invoke immediate results early on this season. “We all know the numbers weren’t good in the first two or three weeks of the season, but we won a lot of those games,” Stevens told […] The post Celtics’ Tristan Thompson Sees Connection Forming With Daniel Theis appeared first on NESN.com.

Parquet plays: the Theis-Thompson high-low

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports The Celtics found the weak point of Atlanta’s defense and exploited it repeatedly on Friday. After an extremely hot first half from the Boston Celtics on Friday night, the Hawks needed to try something to disrupt the C’s rhythm. But the natural playmaking, IQ and experience of the Celtics’ frontline decimated the changeup 2-3 zone by throwing the ball to the high post and executing countless high-low looks. Atlanta’s porous zone didn’t do anything to deny the ball from entering the high post. Once there, Daniel Theis tapped...

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via In a huge win against the Nuggets, Williams gave quality contributions in the absence of Daniel Theis. In Tuesday’s night huge bounce back win for the Celtics, Robert Williams stepped up in a big time role. After Daniel Theis was ruled out with a finger injury, an opening for some added frontcourt minutes became available for Williams, and he was able to do a little bit of everything. Williams finished the game with 8 points, 8 rebounds (3 offensive), and 5 steals in 20 minutes of play, an impressive +12 in +/- rating. This is not...

“Oh, wow”: Semi Ojeleye capitalizes on the opportunity for a career night

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ Semi Ojeleye made the most of his spot start with the best performance of his NBA career. As on and off as Semi Ojeleye’s spot within the Boston Celtics’ rotation has been in three-plus seasons, his role has always stopped short of the starting lineup. Ojeleye had just 10 starts in 220 career games, but Brad Stevens didn’t hesitate to add one more. Stevens was concerned that the two bigs--Tristan Thompson and Daniel Theis--Boston has trotted out to start most games this season would be exposed by a resurgent Pascal Siakam, who came into this...

Daniel Theis’ three-point evolution and the Celtics inability to take advantage of it so far

Photo by Melissa Majchrzak/NBAE via The Boston big man’s newfound touch from beyond the arc could be an even bigger boon for the Celtics’ offense. Daniel Theis knocked down five of his six three-point attempts on Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz. His performance raised his three-point percentage to a staggering 47% on the year, a massive jump from his 33% mark a year prior. Theis’ contributions from downtown weren’t enough to lift Boston to a victory. The Celtics fell to the Jazz 122-108 in what amounted to a perfect microcosm for how to think about their...

Devin Booker leads Suns past Celtics 100-91

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports Booker scored 18 points, dished 11 assists and halted Boston’s comeback attempt with a game-sealing jumper with 43 seconds remaining. Brad Stevens’ reliable options shrunk and rotations expanded deeper into this road trip. Starting three bigs turned into 30 Carsen Edwards minutes against the Clippers. Grant Williams emerged deep off the bench to close a game Daniel Theis and Tristan Thompson started against the Warriors. Stevens goes off feel as much as numbers.

Carsen Edwards leads unsung second unit in win over Clippers

Photo by Adam Pantozzi/NBAE via The sophomore guard is finally making the most of his opportunity. Jayson Tatum had a ho-hum 34 points and outdueled Kawhi Leonard. Kemba Walker shot himself out of a slump and finished with 24 points in arguably his best game since his return. Without Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, and Daniel Theis (who left at halftime with a sore knee), those two starters needed to step up for the Celtics to have any chance of beating the one the best teams in the Western Conference on the road. They did, but it was Boston’s second unit, a group made...
