Sixers’ Joel Embiid seals the win with a block on Daniel Theis

Sixers’ Joel Embiid seals the win with a block on Daniel Theis

Joel Embiid needed to be more aggressive and he showed it on Thursday night. As the Philadelphia 76ers closed out the Boston Celtics 115-109 for Eastern Conference supremacy, Embiid’s listened to Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley’s advice and played dominant. Embiid not only posted 38 points, 13 rebounds and six assists, he closed out the […] The post Sixers’ Joel Embiid seals the win with a block on Daniel Theis appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Celtics’ thin front court hang tough against Pacers big men duo

Celtics’ thin front court hang tough against Pacers big men duo

Photo by Andy Lyons/ Even in a tough loss to the Pacers, the Celtics big men held Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis relatively in check. It was a solid defensive game that needs to be replicated tonight against Joel Embiid and the 76ers. It was a strange night in Indianapolis as the Celtics fell to the Pacers 122-117. Kemba Walker had 44 points, Jaylen Brown and Daniel Theis both fouled out, and Gordon Hayward left yet another game and didn’t return. The biggest takeaway from this game was the defensive lapses from the Celtics that cost them over and over in some huge spots. Even...

Turnovers and defensive miscues cost Boston down the stretch: 10 Takeaways from Celtics/Pacers

Turnovers and defensive miscues cost Boston down the stretch: 10 Takeaways from Celtics/Pacers

Photo by Andy Lyons/ Boston coughed it up seven times in six minutes in the fourth quarter 1. This was a tough loss. Sure, Boston played without Marcus Smart (eye infection) and Gordon Hayward left early (due to a “blow to the nose”) and Jaylen Brown and Daniel Theis fouled out, but the Celtics did plenty of their own self-damage too. We’ll cover those later, but despite the circumstances this was a very winnable game for Boston. But maybe that’s a good thing. They didn’t play overly well, they had a lot go wrong, and the Celtics were still in position to beat a good team on...

Just how good has Daniel Theis been?

Just how good has Daniel Theis been?

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Have Boston’s front court concerns been overstated? Is Theis the ideal center for the Celtics? Brad Stevens’ experimentation with lineups has had some pretty clear cut consequences in the win-loss column. In a one-point loss to Sacramento, Grant Williams registered a DNP, prompting some questions about player rotations in Stevens’ post-game interview. I wrote about how this bothered me and how I didn’t like the reasoning behind sitting a player for an entire game as a way to find the team’s best lineups. Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY...

Shorthanded Celtics had plenty of contributors

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Without three starters, the Celtics relied on role players to step up against the Sacramento Kings. At this point of the season, the Boston Celtics are used to playing without their full compliment of players as the injury report resembles more of a CVS receipt with how long it has been. The C’s were down three starters against the Sacramento Kings Monday night — Gordon Hayward (left hand fracture), Kemba Walker (neck sprain) and Daniel Theis (illness) were all ruled out prior to the contest — but that just opened the door for role players to...

Celtics coach Brad Stevens will have to ‘agree to disagree’ on challenge call in loss to Clippers

The NBA challenge system is up for debate once again. A few days ago, the Boston Celtics played against the Los Angeles Clippers when a debatable call about a Paul George push-off on Daniel Theis came into question. Jaylen Brown was called for a reach-in, while George appeared to get-by with the push-off on Theis.

Daniel Theis’ defense continues to defy expectations

Daniel Theis’ defense continues to defy expectations

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports Theis has started twelve games this season, impressing with his defense throughout. Boston is only fifteen games into the season, yet Daniel Theis has already started more games than the last two years combined. Throughout his first two seasons, Theis participated in a combined 129 regular season games. He started just five of those. Boston currently has a plethora of big’s on their roster, yet Theis is proving himself to be the best among them. While there are still weaknesses to his game, he is negating them with smart decisions and intelligent...

Los Angeles Clippers star Kawhi Leonard explained his dunk on Boston Celtics center Daniel Theis and his game-saving block of point guard Kemba Walker in the most boring way possible.

Photo by Rocky Widner/NBAE via Marcus Smart’s floater just rimmed out as time expired, and the Celtics’ win streak ended at 10 games. Marcus Smart lofted up a floater as the clock ticked down, but after a couple bounces, the ball narrowly rimmed out as time expired, and the Celtics lost a thrilling showdown with the Sacramento Kings, 100-99. Six Celtics scored in double figures, led by 18 points from Jaylen Brown and 14 apiece from Kemba Walker and Daniel Theis, but it wasn’t quite enough to overcome a monstrous 35-point performance from Buddy Hield, and the Celtics suffered just...
